Wiggly Toothed Boy and Mulch Man!

I'm kind of on a blogging rampage tonight, trying to get caught up on posts for my fam (and friends) and I really should be in bed right now if I expect to be worth anything tomorrow, but I'm gonna chance it with one more post! B has been in China for the last 4 days and I think the hardest thing about him being gone is, I don't want to go to bed! The thought of going to sleep alone is not one I'm excited about. So for the last few nights I have prolonged bedttime for way longer than I should. I've decided that I'm not a fan of business trips that I'm on invited on!

So, I have this kid, #2. Well he's lost a couple of teeth and the thing about him is, he won't pull them out! He lets them get so loose that it just dangles in his mouth, then when the thread of tissue is so dissentegrated that it cannot support the tooth, it just drops out. O.K. let me just say, I LOVE PULLING TEETH. My daughter has let me pull every one of her's out and to sit and look at the dangling tooth makes me want to scream! It's like talking to someone with a big zit on their face and wanting so bad to just say, "Excuse me, can I just pop that thing for you?". Well, I guess I just ratted myself out for being a tooth pulling, zit popping, nut job. But seriously, I don't know how many more dangling teeth I can take! Just thinking about it makes me want to go downstairs right now and yank it out while he's asleep, but I promised him that I wouldn't. That thing haunts my dreams!!

So all the springy weather has really gotten me excited to start planting some flowers, so I picked up a few things to plant in the front yard. Baby is so into being outside and also into eating EVERYTHING. No, that is NOT a good combination! I caught him eating, bark, rocks, Baylee's fetch ball (eew!), my gardening gloves, leaves, roller skates, and he even topped it off with a handful of mulch. It says on the bag that it promotes good growing, I wonder if that pertains to little boys too? I'll let you know!

I think dangling teeth would definitely drive me nuts too! And, mulch man is way cute!
