Hey, boys and girls! It turns out, you're never really too old to have a theme for the day!
My youngest came home from preschool yesterday with an alligator pouch he'd made (full of "A" pictures) and an alligator dance. You won't be surprised to learn that it featured a big "chomp!"
On the way to pick up the older two from school, I heard a little more chomp chomping from the back of the car. This time, it was the dog. Hers wasn't so much an alligator impression as she was trying to taste the DS game left in a cup holder.
We picked up my son first and while he mourned the loss of his Mario game, we picked up my daughter. She placed a tiny present into my hand: the bracket that held her braces to her back molar.
I admire my friends and relatives who are dental hygenists and dentists. I have never had any desire to put my hand inside anyone's mouth. So after trying to coax Playdoh out of the dog's mouth a little later, I decided to open the wine, declare that I was off-duty and ordered pizzas for dinner. (Yes, one was cheese-free!)
