the tooth fairy

Cousin Dru lost a tooth over the weekend and Nile was most likely the cause (innocent til proven guilty, right?) Now he is obsessed with loosing teeth and the tooth fairy thing. "Mom, Google to tell me how many teeth I'm gonna lose."(He knew I wouldn't know the answer-it's 20).So now (nightly) we pretend he has lost a tooth and I'm the tooth fairy. I put a cell phone under his pillow last night, and it wasn't good enough. Hopefully this is a quick phase.

the sun is still shining!

I just spent 15 minutes explaining to Nile why I am not crazy for putting him to bed in the "daytime". I even threw in a few tidbits about Alaska and Russia having sunlight all day. And then, of course, I had to run downstairs to Google if my answer was right. Cause I know he will be questioning me all summer.

lessons learned

So I'm not going get the mom of the week award. When I walked in the house (after working late) Nile informed me:
1. I didn't pick him up from JoJo's so his dad had to.
2. Mrs. Hartnett didn't approve of the fruit snacks I sent with him to preschool - they just aren't a good choice for a snack (after he BEGGED for them!)
3. You are NOT sposed to rinse your mouth after you brush your teeth."You've been telling me wrong AWL ALAWNG"!

a lesson about plurals

Nile came down the stairs and asked "Mom, what do you get when you put an 'S' in toilet?" And I said "toilets?". He said "Yep! So I just put an 'S' in our toilet so we will get lots and lots of toilets!!!" I'm headed up there to investigate.  I'm a little scared of what I may find.
