First Things Times Two!
All parents of small children know that each and every day holds an infinite realm of possibilities. Today we have not one but two new firsts. Our daughter, Arianwyn, has her first loose tooth. She is thrilled! She says that she "always wanted to have the first loose tooth." She can't wait to see what the tooth fairy will bring her and wanted to know what Mama Frank and I got from the tooth fairy when we lost our first teeth. She's convinced that the apple she ate yesterday is the cause of it and she could not be any happier.
The second first was from our Jessica. Our girls go to the elementary school where Mama Frank teaches. After school they walk down to her classroom while she finishes up whatever from the day or prepares for the next day. One of the other teachers has his kids there as well and so our girls and his kids often play together after school in one of their rooms. Today while going from one room to the other suddenly the fire alarm began to sound. Mama Frank walked out into the hallway only to see Jessica standing in front of the freshly pulled fire alarm. Oh boy!!! I would say these things only happen to me but I know better than that. Mama Frank used the situation for a learning experience. She marched Jessica down to the Principal's office and had her apologize to the secretary (as the Principal was not there today.) She then marched her to each and every custodian and had her apologize to them as they were the ones running around to find out if the alarm was real.
What stories do you guys have of your children's "firsts"?
