Fun is Fundamental

On Friday night, the Boy Wonder lost a molar.

I can tell my boy is growing up because I didn't even hear any inklings
of a possible loose tooth that was wiggle worthy enough to actually come out.

Well, out it came with very little fanfare from my little Big Man.

He then began pumping me about the toothfairy and, actually,
with a knowing twinkle in his eye, he gave me his best
"I really do still believe, Mom" look.

He told me that he thought the toothfairy should
leave him BIG money since its a big tooth.

Well, guess what he got.......


We all had a good laugh.
A good laugh, that is, until he told me he wanted to go to the bank
and cash it in for some tens and ones.
That's when I had to have a little chat with him about
how NOT to get your picture on a poster in the post office.



  1. oh funny - I'm still giggling :)

  2. Lol!! WB is a hoot! And I would believe in the tooth fairy too if $1 million was up for grabs ;o)

    BTW - I spy our favorite little breakfast spot! Reminds me that we need to schedule "catch up" time soon :)

  3. hehe!!

    Nice to catch up on your blog. My summer has been crazy and has not allow time for much blogging!!

    HOpe you are having a beautiful summer! Saw that you went to Lisa workshop, how fun!!! Would have loved to do that, maybe next time!!

  4. Hi sweet Dita,

    I finally got on blog world early this morning and read through all your beautiful words and starred at each image of your family. Ok, Wonder Boy and Sweetie are growing up too fast. Did they ask you permission to do this? Just wondering? :). Your posts are lovely as ever. Hope all is well with you.


  5. Wonderboy should get the money he is saving you in extraction fees from the dentist.

    Is it a coincidence that you loaded them up on junk candy last week and this week teeth are actually falling out?

    I would tell you to throw the rest away, but I have a feeling it has all been ingested by the entire Darling Gang.

    Tsk, tsk.

  6. Ha ha....loved this one. Especially the cunning cleverness of that sweet boy!. And that "bill" gave me a double take too. Would that it were real!!


  7. My first comment didn't go thru.
    Should I write another one? It seems like the smile went thru.
    This post made me smile.
    I am sending over
    magic stop growing up dust at once.
    I can't take this aging thing....

  8. Hysterical!! He is such a cutie!
