Mason had a field trip to Menagerie Farms this week. It was originally scheduled for last Friday (yay, I am off on Fridays) but with the rain, they had to move it to this Wednesday. Unfortunately, there was no way I could take off with such short notice, so we were thankful Mickey Mouse was able to go!
It is always such a fun place.
About to feed the fish.
Wednesday night, right before bed, Mason showed me that his front, lower tooth was almost out. That can only mean one thing.....he grabbed me a washcloth, and we pulled that sucker out.
He is so funny when it comes to stuff like that. Instead of crying or letting me know when it hurts, he does a nervous giggle. He can't stop. Its hilarious. He is one tough cookie when it comes to pain usually.
Well we put them to bed and about ten minutes later, Mason came running into our room.
Instead of sleeping he had been wiggling the upper, front tooth and it was now pretty loose and bleeding. He made the thing sore, but it needed to come out at that point. He grabbed me the cloth, and I got to extracting. A couple of tugs later, and the thing popped out. Talk about excited.
Two teeth in one night.
The next morning, the Tooth Fairy had left $10 since he lost two at once
and because we were pretty short on cash that late at night. We stressed to him that we had never heard of her leaving that much, and we were certain it was because it was TWO teeth.
We are still loving baseball, win or lose.
It was fun to watch, and he is loving the game.
He was 3 for 3 and played both infield and outfield.
Nothing better than all of your Grandparents, two missing teeth, and snacks on a beautiful night at the ballfields.
This jeep was parked next to me. I guess Brody had never seen one. He was in awe and I had to physically pull him away from the thing. He just wanted "one ride"!
Mason came downstairs last night with this proposal.
He would like to do 7 chores for $5. (Guess the Tooth Fairy gave him a taste of what rich feels like to a 7 year old) If he really sticks with it, we will call this his allowance.
We got our baseball picture proofs back. I just love them.
He LOVES that they gave him some baseball cards of himself.
The team with the coaches.
And my favorite picture of them all.
John is really enjoying teaching these kids about the game he once loved to play. And to have his son out there makes it even better. Mason is having fun and that is all that matters.
John has all the patience in the world with those kids. He is the coach with the knowledge of the game and those kids listen to him. Mason is so lucky to have such a wonderful, caring father. Well, we are all lucky to have him around.
