Another Tooth

Guess who finally lost another tooth?  At almost 10 years old, this is only her third tooth lost.
It was so wiggly, and we were all concerned that she would swallow it in bed.
So a friend pulled it out at church tonight. Phew!
I can handle bloody knees and elbows, but not a loose tooth.
Makes me squeamish.
Now if only the tooth fairy will be too busy to stop by.
Oh, and she needs to bring something other than money.
Because Laura will eat money.
Tooth fairy needs to stop at the store tomorrow...

In the past few days...

Jacob has started tearing apart our old piano.  He and a gentleman from church plan to build a desk and a coffee table.  Can't wait!
 Charlie was trying to be polite while sampling a garlic stuffed olive.  I think his face says it all.

 And Laura has found a new pastime...blowing raspberries.  She just cracks herself up every time!

What does he do?

A question we often, what does he do for her?

No, he doesn't go to school with her.
And he doesn't detect seizures...thankfully, we don't need that right now.
He doesn't track her, because she doesn't run away.
He doesn't do behavior disruption, because she doesn't throw tantrums.

But when no one else is playing with her...guess who's there?
And when she lies down on the floor tired...guess who's there with her?
And whom does he choose to follow up and down the stairs?  And "wash" from the side of the bathtub?
And guess who he chooses to snuggle with during pizza/movie night?

Friends.  And that means a lot.
