Small moments

Rate this Entry
Today was a time for take in the small moments in the chaos of hubby deploying and things changing in the house. My son comes to me about a "loose tooth". He was sad about that and the poor worm that he thought he had saved was in fact dead. There were tears shed for the poor worm.

Well he wanted his tooth out and was afraid to pull it out, granted it was hanging on by 2 roots. So pawpaw had pulled it, that en-turn caused me to have to make a tooth fairy pillow for my son. I know he will be super excited when sees what the tooth fairy gave him. But the small moment that got me was how much fun it was to let my son help me make the tooth fairy pillow. We went through fabric I had to use, with a pocket without a pocket (it has a pocket), what type of ribbon to use (he picked blue 2x), cutting fabric and quilt backing to give it shape. Watching him roll all over the floor hugging the quilt batting. It was kind of a headache but in the end he will remember it and have that tooth fairy pillow to pass down to his kids.

Enjoy these moments they grow sooo fast.

    Awww, that's sweet. Sorry to hear the wiggler didn't make it. When I was a kid and had "outgrown" Santa, the easter bunny and the toothfairy, I mistakenly thought that they were things parents made up for their children's sake. Now that I'm a parent, I realize that those characters weren't made up for the kids sake, they were made up for the parents sake, lol. I LOVED playing Santa, Easter Bunny and toothfairy. Now that the boys are teens, it's just not the same! The anticipation, the mystery, the traps to "catch" the characters in the act so they can see them. Ahhh, those were the days.
