Also yesterday (before the fall), Brendan lost another tooth! One of the front ones, next to the other one he lost recently...just in time for school pictures next week. Guess he will have a semi-toothless grin this year.
He was excited about putting the tooth under his pillow so that he could "earn" more money. We have a system set up that he has been earning nickles for chores and when he reaches $1 he can spend it or save it to get something bigger. So he was thrilled to find 2 quarters under his pillow this morning to add to his earnings. But, shortly after that, he asked Joe if we put the money there. He said that everyone at school has been saying that the tooth fairy isn't real and that the parents leave the money. Joe told him we were sleeping too. But then we decided to go ahead and tell him he is right, when Adam isn't around. I guess it is time for him to know. I'm wondering if he will then start to wonder about Santa this year too. Guess we will find out.
Speaking of Santa, and Christmas, I saw a link from Org Junkie a couple days ago about the site 100 Days to Christmas...have you seen this? It is a site that helps take you through the steps of getting ready for the holidays starting now, so that you are not totally stressing out. I'm going to try to follow it this year, because anything I can do to make something in life more organized and less stressful would be great! Check it out if you're interested:
