Tooth Fairy

One thing that a special needs mom will worry herself to death about is their little boy loosing his first tooth. I can remember being so excited when Bryce lost his first tooth and couldn't wait to play tooth fairy. This time around all I could think about was, " Is Austin going to swollow it?" Or " is he going to chew on it?"  We noticed Austin's bottom permanent tooth came in over Christmas. Of course the dentist was closed till after the new year. It was loose and getting looser but I just couldn't pull it. Well I guess that's what dad is for. I pretty much threatened his life if he hurt my baby. And I meant every word of that. So last night after a bath guess he came out with a bloody mouth???? 
I didn't know what to think. I was happy, sad, confused, and mostly just hoped Austin would be in a better mood. He's been very cranky the last few day and not eating too well. 
Guess now we need to call the dentist and cancel that sedation for a while (they were probably going to go ahead and pull the tooth beside it also). This should buy us a little time but I will get their optinion about it first. 
Just like any other kid, the tooth fairy came last night!!!!
Wonder what Big A is going to buy????  I'm guessing a ninja turtle. More on that to come.

"When you feel like quitting, think about why you started."

Almost a full week into 2014 and I am just getting over the flu. 
I didn't make it till midnight, we didn't have our pajama dance party like I planned, and I didn't make any goals for the new year. 😢 I have been thinking about some things I would like for this year but haven't made them official by writing them out. Most of them involve family, friends, and bettering myself. Isn't that what we all want? 
The husband and I did manage a little date night in the weekend. BWW, dinner, football, a beverage, and the movies. I haven't been to the movies in a long time but it's a perfect winter date night. Thanks to our great friends the Switzers for watching our babies for a few hours. 

One thing I will update on is I am so happy to say that Marshall works a morning shift job now. It was a very tought last few years with him working a 12-9 pm schedule. We made it work but it wasn't fun or easy. I'm so very thankful that my husband has a great job and supports our family. However, it is extremely cold (I think the high is 9 tomorrow) and he works for the electric company. I'm sure he probably thinks I don't give it much thought since I am home and warm, but that's not true. I worry. I wonder if he is warm. I think about if he packed enough to eat. I think about what he is working on. I know the further he gets in his job the more I am going to worry. I love him and I worry. All the time.  Prayers tonight and tomorrow that he stays safe and warm tomorrow.  
I'll be thinking of those goals that I want to put out there but for tonight I'll leave you with a picture of our first little snow of 2014!

Hello 2014

Well I didn't blog last year. I know I said I would, but I didn't. Oh well. It's a new year. Last year lots of exciting things happened and I'm sure eventually you will hear all about it. I have started out 2014 Facebook deactivated. Let's see how long that last. I do still have my Instagram and Twitter active. Lol.  Let's all have a fab year and say bye to 2013. 
My crazy family!
