We had our life group over for Easter. And yes I made another meal besides the one I just posted. . . Johnny Carino’s Bowtie Festival. Another scrum-diddly-umptious recipe I found online. But that isn’t what made my day. We were hanging out (children included) when a conversation went something like this:
Ariana (1st grader) – “I have a loose tooth.”
Beckie- “You do? Let me see. . . oh my you need to just pull that out, you can do it.”
Duaine (Ariana’s dad) – “No don’t pull it out, just let it fall out by itself, I keep telling her not to play with it, it will come out when it is ready”
Beckie – “Ok seriously have anyone of you just let a tooth fall out by itself? Come on you have to pull it out.”
Duaine – “Ariana, let me see…just chill…let it fall out by itself”
Beckie – “Come on Ariana you can totally pull that out, it is hanging by a string, it is so ready to be pulled out, you can do it, come on.”
(rolling of Duaine’s eyes)
Then all of the sudden, Ariana, full of gusto, takes of step back from her dad and says “Daddy I am doing it!” A second later a tooth was on the ground. Her face looked shocked, Duaine’s face was priceless. I was cheering and FREAKING OUT! Ariana lost her first tooth at my house! YAHOOO! Isn’t she the cutest? She was so excited!
I had to take a picture with her because I was so dang proud of her. Duaine is still rolling his eyes at this point. LOL! Truth be told, I just think he didn’t want to fork over money from the tooth fairy
Duaine, the rolling-eye guy is on the left, Brad, our fashion guru metrosexual on the right. Definition: metrosexual (met.roh.SEK.shoo.ul) n. An urban male with a strong aesthetic sense who spends a great deal of time and money on his appearance and lifestyle. Hence the tie and vest at game night.
