desperate times call for desperate measures...

Avery has finally been losing his baby teeth. Between the tooth fairy and Aunt Carol's birthday money, Avery is "so rich" according to Miles.

Just for fun...

I said, "Boys, Daddy and I are in a financial crisis. I think I'm gonna pull a few of my teeth and put 'em under my pillow."

They both stopped suddenly and looked at me earnestly. Avery had a look of is-that-possible??? While Miles shot the you-cannot-be-serious look. Miles blurted out, "Do NOT do that." Avery followed up with, "They don't accept second set teeth...only baby teeth."

So much fun...for me.

This leads me to ask, how have you messed with your kids???

I leave the messing with my kids to my husband. He does a great job of it, as he has a wonderful sense of timing and humor! :)

OOOOOOOOH...these leave me laughing with such enjoyment..."they don't accept second set teeth." And I wonder...was Miles thinking about what his mom was going to look like with huge gaps between the teeth she decided to keep. This is just too good. Would have paid big money...well, if I had it...haven't been clever enough to think about what I could sell...to hear/see the interacting there.

Getting to know them a little better, I can kind of picture their faces as they spoke their respective lines. It has been cracking me up over and over. And thinking of you with massive gaps all over your mouth just kills me. You have nice teeth, Jenna. Don't pull them out, ok?
