Dear Ex Husband~

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!!  :)

My Girl loses her first tooth!!

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.

Love MyGirls!
