A great report, a bad report and a missing tooth!

A job well done!
Are there purple elephants in the room?
Lara stayed to helpVIOLA!
yeah, don't know why she is sleeping in her hat?

Here it is - now how much cash is the Tooth Fairy going to leave? Don't worry, she turned the pillow around so the Tooth Fairy would not have to fly to the back of her pillow to get the tooth.

The great report is Ella's report card. She got all 76 of her sight words correct, her verb/noun, name and letters/sounds! As her reward, on the coldest days of winter so far, we bought her an ice cream cake....okay, we enjoyed it too! Her bad report was when I took her to her 6 year "well" check-up she had strep throat. Gabe also had his 4 month "well" check up and had an ear infection. Anyway, back to Ella, the tooth had been wiggling for a few days but her daddy decided it was time to come out. After work (she was with us because of the strep), he hooked her up to the gas, numbed it up and gave it a yank. Oddly enough, she was thrilled. I was in the room with my eyes closed. Well, okay, I actually walked out of the room. Her tooth is tucked safely in her tooth pillow ready for the tooth fairy to come!

Lucky, Ella to have a dentist for a daddy. I can vividly remember wiggling teeth for weeks trying to get them to come loose. Once my brother and his friends were wrestling; I got knocked down and out came a loose tooth. I never tied a string to it and put the other end around a door knob though. Oh, to have been hooked up to the gas at age 6 and got it pulled so I could've gotten my money right away!
