best of...

Best argument of the day: "Mermaids are the heroes of the Seas". "No. Mermaids are the heroes of the Ocean". (Now repeat that 15 times) No one won. The ocean and the sea are the same thing. (at least they are now to a 3 and 4 yr old)

Best defensive move of the day: Lily threw an aluminum kids kitchen cup at Eloise's collarbone. She said she just didn't want her near the kitchen. We'll have to work a little more on how to express ourselves without throwing objects.

Best use of sand: (it was bath day, thankfully)



















Best way to beat the heat for a 10 month old: re-purposed organizational bin. a.k.a - Sam's pool. Just look at that delighted grin!



















Best way to end the day: Eloise came out of bed eager to show me her super loose tooth she's been working for months. I really hope she doesn't lose it in her sleep tonight. She's WAY too excited for the tooth fairy to come and bring her $.25. (we're cheap, I know)

So cute! Eloise has officially reached the "big kid" age - look at how grown up she looks!! Sam is just FULL of joy, isn't he?

Kate,
Alex did swallow her first tooth, but it was super loose. We paid 0.25, too, but went to 0.50 now with the molars. The T.F. Letters is a great read out loud book if you'd like a sugggestion - maybe in a few years, yet, but a fun one for our family.

I'm a big fan of repurposed rubbermaid, as you know. He does look uber happy, doesn't he?
And I totally feel for you with the endless argument. I have so many of those kind I now just pick Lukas up and walk into another room with him.
