smile....

...and now, an unannounced break from e's art blog ..... for a moment of mommeeeee-ness .... 

my little sunshine said, mom, i have a toothache.....
e: really, when did it start
s: i don't know, a while ago
e: do you need to floss, maybe there's something stuck in between your teeth...
s: it hurt before i flossed yesterday too .... 
e: come here, show me which tooth....
s: this one
e: honey, your tooth is LOOSE .... 
s: are you sure? 
e: here, feel it and move it..... 
s: yippeeeeeeee .... 
....and she does the happy dance ..... she is seven .... and now the next to last child in her first grade class to have a loose tooth .... and, at the rate she's wiggling it, the next to last child to lose a tooth .... because with constant wiggling, that tooth is bound to be out soon .... 

who knows how long that tooth was loose ... she had no concept of what "loose tooth" meant .... 

this blog post is brought to you by joy ..... and happiness ....and contentedness....  and sheer pleasure in the small moments...... 

here's what made me happy today: 
2 phone calls from a far-away-on-a-trip-been-gone-too-long husband...
4 of us meeting 3 pals for dinner...
60 minutes of tennis with 1 groovy coach and 1 groovier pal...2 days in a row
12 girlfriends rsvping yes to plans for a valentine brunch ....
fed ex's 1 email to me, 2 valentine gifts for my true love being delivered tomorrow...whew....
2 canvases i worked on today...
3 children making valentine's...
wearing 1 pair of doodle shoes today......
and of course, 1 wiggly tooth... in 1 giggly mouth ... 

what made you happy today?

oh man. you're going to kill me for this. but it's the honest to goodness truth. i was doing the happy dance ... twice. in one day. smiling real big. so proud. thinking how awesome i am. how well i did my job. twice. in the same day.







those two moles i caught in my traps...added to the first one...makes three for the year. YTD: 3 moles. dead gone. you're going to kill me for this happy news aren't you?

The Tooth Fairy is on the lookout at your house now I'm sure.

DH bringing me a boquet of the first spring flowers from our yard made me smile. They are hyacinths.
