Where’s my tooth?!?

That tooth has been hanging on for a couple weeks now. We were at the Party Palace for a bday party of one of Audrey’s friends. You were climbing up one of the inflatable slides when someone else came down and managed to hit you right in the mouth. You immediately looked at me with tears in your eyes…but then…you noticed something in your mouth. You spit it out on the inflatable because you weren’t sure what it was at first😂. But then you realized, “My tooth!!” Your tears were immediately replaced with a beaming, toothless smile!! You are the sweetest little girl tho because within minutes you were worried that your mommy wasn’t there to witness it. Your momma was bound and determined to be there for your first tooth because Audrey had lost hers at school. She’s been at everything, every time, every where, but unfortunately she wasn’t feeling well so she laid down on the couch to rest while we went to the party. I thought it was pretty amazing how much you cared about your mommas feelings. You are an amazing sweet beautiful little girl. Daddy is proud of you! And mommy is too!!!

I’ll add…the tooth fairy didn’t have any change so your first tooth paid a whopping 20 bucks…don’t get used to it!😂. Love you!

Kindergartener flies an airplane!

Enjoying a daddy daughter afternoon! Audrey was getting to do something with mamaw me and you were going to make the best of the afternoon.

We flew to Somerset, ate at Mellow Mushroom, grabbed some Baskin Robins, and then you flew us home. You followed the power lines from Somerset to London and I literally never touched the stick. I’m amazed at how well you can fly when you can’t even see out of the front window. Proud of you!

Audrey’s first piano recital!

I am unbelievably proud of you! You worked really hard and practiced so much! There were times that you would get frustrated but you continued to work hard to get it down. I couldn’t have been prouder that you got up there in front of all those people. That was a really big deal! I hope that you continue to play because I know that you can do absolutely anything you put your mind to. I love you girl! Daddy is always so proud of you!

Epic Preschool Show & Tell

This is probably the coolest thing your dad has ever done in an airplane! I landed the cub at Audrey’s preschool and about 20 kids got to climb into the airplane and pretend to be a pilot. My favorite part is hearing Audrey in the background: “That’s my dad” and “Bye Daddy!” I love my girls and I’m so thankful I got to do this for both of them. Amelia was just as excited as they were!

As usual, this is bad late being posted. May 2019

Circle what you want…


Your mom gave you a catalog to look at fall clothes for school and told you to circle what you want…

Looks like we’ll be getting a dog soon. You’ve been wanting a dog or a cat for so long and even though dad is allergic to them, I can’t keep you from experiencing the joy of a pet any longer. I wonder what you’ll name her? I’m already excited to see your excitement and I haven’t even looked for a dog yet.

Love you girl!


Bye Bye Money


My Rock Stars


First of all, daddy made the mistake of buying you something out of the little quarter vending machines and now every time you see one you want something!  That’s what started your understanding of money. Now you see the vending machine and turn to daddy and say, “I want money.”  So we’ve dropped several quarters on bouncy balls, gum balls (which we tell you are bouncy balls), beautiful necklaces, and even some stretchy sticky miniature handcuff thingamajigs. 

The other night, we were trying to brush your teeth and you noticed that daddy had put some of his change on the bathroom counter. You wanted to hold the money and started saying toy, toy!  Daddy told you that you had to go to sleep first and then you might get a toy tomorrow. You immediately put the money down and said “Bye bye money!”
