Teething - Stage 2

All my recent teething stories have been about Mick. As you know teething is a two-step process. Sarah officially entered Stage 2. She lost her first baby tooth this week. It happened at camp during lunch. The fateful tooth was consumed along with her peanut butter sandwich.

Good News! The Tooth Fairy pays up even if the tooth is lost. I had no desire to search for that tooth upon its exit. I have enough dealings with stinky messes via Mick's dirty diapers!

It has been a busy and fun-filled week. Scott returned with wonderful tales from St. Lucia. Emily's wedding was wonderful. Sarah was at a YMCA camp this week while I finished up classes. They hosted a family fitness fun night complete with obstacle courses and a fun "triathlon." The family ran, biked, and finished with a ride down the water slide. We were soaking wet and had lots of fun. Next up was Jaley's birthday party. Our Friday night was hopping good fun at Jump Zone.

It is a good thing that there was lots of fun, because life got a little less playful. Mick is sick with some type of nasty stomach virus. All he has had for the past three days is saltines, apple sauce, and apple juice. Rumor at the day care is to expect a week of this - yuck!

Scott is missing all the germs. He left yesterday for China. He is in China for 5 days (plus 3 days of travel) going to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and another city I can't pronounce. No Great Wall or Forbidden City for him - just airports, hotels, and customer visits. He called a few minutes ago to let me know he had arrived. He asked just one question - Gucci or Coach? Apparently you can get knock-offs at the airport. If I'm lucky, he will arrive home with a "Couch" purse. My gift for solo parenting most of the past month.

That is life in the stroller lane.
