|Look ma, no eyes! Why does this boy with the beautiful eyes have to squint when he smiles?|
Yep, I know the world cares about my kid losing a tooth and that's why I'll tell you all about it. Jonas is 6 and lost his first tooth on May 9th. It had been wiggling for weeks and he wouldn't stop messing with it (though he wouldn't let me tie it to a door) and it finally fell out while he was doing nothing in particular.
Then about 3 days later (yeah, I know- great mom, right?) he lost his second one. Good thing we have a reasonable tooth fairy. She left him a gold dollar for the first and a quarter for the second. It took a few days to get to him because someone takes forever to go to sleep when he goes to bed and someone's mom was really tired.
|Someone got out of eating apples for a few weeks. Yay, applesauce!|
|Just look at this and don't fall in love.|
Every month a local consignment and other goodies shop, The Little Green Owl in York, PA, holds a community night for two of our local elementary schools. I totally dig supporting schools and local small businesses so if I can get there on those dates, I go out and buy a couple things. It's never much, but it makes me feel better about myself and I love coming home with a few new things.
At recent community nights I grabbed a few shirts and sweatshirts for the kids; things we needed anyway. A friend set up her Tastefully Simple biz at one of the nights and also donated some $ to the schools so I bought myself some Orange Dreamsicle cheese ball mix because it's a necessity and absolutely delish. Next time I go I plan to grab one of the super adorable American Girl outfits that a local lady makes and sells at ridiculously affordable prices.
The last time I went I actually snagged a photo of my swag so you can get excited and travel to my little city and get your very own awesome swag. Or find someone in your town who makes cool stuff too.
First up is this adorable grandma photo or whatever holder. I'm not a grandma, but I know someone who is and they are getting this. It could hold one 4x6 or a few wallets. The hearts are magnets, making switching up the photos super easy.
That fabulous wine thing in the first photo? I don't even know where I'm going to put it but at $2.50 I had to buy it. I'm going to buy more too. It's big and great and I love it.
And last, but not least, there's the itty-bitty chalkboard:
|You are so cute.|
By the way, if you want to shop with me and support some local schools and a local business, head out to The Little Green Owl on Carlisle Rd. on May 29th from 4-8pm.
