Today, Josie discovered another wiggly tooth!
This apple is the official Tooth Loosener.
Josie's loose tooth is an upper tooth and one that got pushed up into her gums at some unknown point in her six years. We don't know why the tooth became wiggly today, but Josie is very glad about this turn of events.
As she so wonderfully put it, "I want to lose this tooth, because I need money. I'm saving up for lots of money." An ambitious goal.
Not much else has been happening at our house this week. Henry brought a rotten cold into the family and he passed it along to Georgia, who in turn, passed it along to me. We are a very giving family. As I am wont to do, I didn't just get the stuffy nose and cough that my children got ... no! That would be way too dull for me. My body took that runny nose and hacking cough and added to it a swollen, bruised-looking nose and an itchy rash. I am really too lucky for words. I've been to two different doctors and am now on antibiotics for a possible sinus infection and/or bacterial skin infection. Every day brings another new symptom, so who knows what my nose will look like tomorrow and what the diagnosis will be. Sigh.
While we convalesce, we continue to work on an endless stream of school projects.
Georgia worked on a family tree poster...
And Josie made her rain forest animal (a sloth) out of clay. This is our family's third and last rain forest animal and Gordy and I are not the slightest bit sad. It's safe to say that we are all rain forest-ed out.
We are all looking forward to a sickness-free long weekend.
As I am feeling giving myself, and since I can not transfer my germs through the computer to my loyal readers, I will give you another sort of Memorial Day present:
One genuine weirdo.
