    A Cow Day Memory

    IMG_0391Today was national cow day or something like that at Chick-fil-A. The kids were up early and ready to go to breakfast with their friend, Samantha. Anybody who wears a cow outfit of their own making got a free meal.

    Lucia was up at midnight last night finishing up their costumes. Chick-fil-A was proactive enough to put paw prints, spots, tails, noses and ears on their website. Lucia printed them off and taped them to their T-shirts.

    The kids had a major memory.

    They had breakfast, lunch and dinner. I had a break in counseling long enough to join them for dinner at the local Chick on Pelham Road.

    Lucia said she had her chicken quota for the day. Her cals were shot, but she will go running in the AM.

    Our First Loose Tooth

    We were coming home tonight from our Boot Camp exercise group and Tristen announced quite emotively that she had a loose tooth. I checked it out and found not just one, but two loose teeth. She was ecstatic.

    Her bottom two front teeth are quite shaky. They probably won’t make it through the weekend.

    She asked if she could stay outside for a few minutes. She needed to dance in the driveway. Tristen has never found a  moment in her life that she has not been overly excited about. She is the perfect person to open presents. Everything is a party and everyday is full of surprises and she does not hold back from excited expressions when it comes to whatever is the next thing.

    For her, this is a rite of passage into adulthood. Her friend is seven and has lost eight teeth thus far.

    Once she came in the house she needed to call Grandma Mary and Grandma Pat and let them know the good news.
