Today I registered our Daughter for Kindergarten! It's been an eventful couple of days to get it all done, but well worth the prize. I'm not sure why, but I could not find her Birth Certificate, so yesterday I spent two hours at the Bureau of Vital Statistics. Between the babies crying, the ridiculous lines & the "next number served" screaming loudly over the intercom, I managed to take a conference call & start work on a project. I somehow left with my sanity. On a side note, our oldest Daughter was very intrigued by this Birth Certificate. I watched as she rubbed her finger back and forth across your name.
This morning was spent driving almost two hours to & from the pediatrician to get her a Hepatitis A vaccine we somehow missed during the annual well check ups. Just so you know, My Girl is 46" tall & weighs 48 lbs. She has changed so much since you saw her last. She was petrified about getting this shot & actually cried when the nurse walked over. It amazes me how the Doctor makes it all better with a slap bracelet & lollipop!
My girl has her Princess backpack & her big Sister's Princess lunch bag from 3 years ago packed and ready to go for her first day of Kindergarten! This is a day no parent should miss....especially when they have the choice. I'm not sure why I felt compelled to share the days events, it just felt necessary.
We celebrated by going fishing!! :)

This week my youngest Daughter finally lost her FIRST baby tooth. I say finally, as her tooth needed to come out for days (maybe even weeks~lol) and she has been too scared to let anyone touch it! After much coercing, she built up the courage to pull it out on her own. I would like to add, enticing her with money from the Tooth Fairy was probably my best persuasion tactic! ;)
That same night we performed a ritual we had done many times. We placed her tooth in the special Tooth Fairy pillow & recited the Tooth Fairy poem. The pillow was a gift for my oldest Daughter & has always been very special to her. I know it was difficult, but in honor of this momentous occasion, she passed the pillow down to her Sister. She also taught her the Tooth Fairy poem & helped her when she stumbled on the words.
