Tooth Fairy Time!


"All it took was a pizza Lunchable!"

Those were the first words Gabby excitedly told Mommy and Daddy when she got off of the bus after school today while proudly showing us her tooth necklace.  Gabby finally lost her first tooth today!  She has been waiting for about two years for this day.  Her adult teeth were actually already halfway through and she was supposed to go to the dentist for help with her teeth.

She is so excited for the tooth fairy to come tonight and take her tooth.  Luckily Grandma made her a Tooth Fairy pillow years ago that has been patiently hanging on her closet door handle waiting for the day it would be needed. I only wonder what does a tooth fairy bring these days? I guess only time will tell. Hopefully the other tooth that needs to be pulled will follow suit and fall out soon as well.

An added bonus to wiggly teeth in our home is that Daddy HATES seeing a tooth move or even the mention of a wiggly tooth.  Gabby enjoys torturing Daddy with this knowledge (and Mommy may find it quite entertaining as well).


Morning Update: Gabby left the Tooth Fairy a letter asking to keep her first tooth and the Tooth Fairy wrote back complementing how well she takes care of her teeth and leaving her $5 and two half dollars (like the Tooth Fairy used to leave Mommy).  Gabby was very excited and as a bonus it was pajama day at school.

Becoming a Marlin

One evening while eating dinner at Texas Roadhouse (our usual on Friday nights so we can see Daddy for an hour while he’s working) Gabby saw Olympic swimmers on the television and said I want to do that.  Michael and I have been wanting Gabby to become less fearful of the water and a stronger swimmer so we immediately agreed that becoming a swimmer was a great idea.  Two weeks later I had all of the information needed and we were signed up for the neighborhood swim team.  Little did I know how intense summer swim team would be!
To be allowed on the team you must be capable of swimming across the entire 25 meter pool, there is no time limit and you are allowed to hold on to the rope as much as you need.  Gabby made it across the pool in about 2 minutes, 20 seconds with a lot of encouragement from the coaches and a lot of holding onto the ropes and taking breaks.  I must add that the evaluation was in April and it was cold, but she never even mentioned the temperature of the water the…

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:







I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).



Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
