My baby looses a tooth...


I finally get to experience Shea loosing his first tooth....NATURALLY!

Yes, there is a story behind that statement.
Back in December, I was in hospital and my dear friend and neighbor graciously took care of my children. Taking them to and from school, feeding them and genuinely loving them as I would have.
Unfortunately, for her, Shea and her son have a very unique relationship. It's not love/hate/....its more like a competitive kind of love.
Well, as they were playing/running like nutty kids, Shea ran head into this poor little guys head.

What ensued was a lost front tooth with tons of blood and drama. Gina, God love her, called our neighbor...who just happens to be a dentist...and gets Shea to her office promptly.

The tooth quickly comes out and all is fine... just try to tell that to a mother who is lying in bed, worrying that she is not doing her job as a mom. I cried upon learning of the ordeal and cried even more when I saw that sweet little face.

When you get to the bottom of it...it couldn't have happened any better. We now have a story that will be shared by both families for the rest of our lives.

Our neighbors happen to be some of our best friends.

Our children play with one another constantly. We share birthdays and holidays with each other and come to rely on each other in many ways.

It is a blessing you don't get very often.



In coming months Gina and I will start preparing for her annual Halloween Party. Last year we set the bar pretty high...so this year we are going to raise it. We will share with you all the fun details as we get closer to the date.
