It''s Been A Busy Day
For starters, Calvin lost his 2nd tooth tonight, in an epic battle of wills wherein Calvin had to choose between the excitment of losing another tooth and squeezing some more money out of the tooth fairy, or letting Dad stick a tissue in his mouth and yank out his entire jaw in order to do so.
Calvin can be a touch dramatic, if you didn''t already figure that out.
At any rate, it''s finally out and Calvin didn''t pass out from the extreme blood loss either, so it''s a win-win for everyone!
And the best part? He totally forgot about the question he clobbered me over the head with earlier tonight. Please allow me to recap:
I''m minding my own business, talking to Joep about this and that. When I finally stop to take a breath, Calvin chooses that moment to go completely off-topic by randomly asking, "Mama, can I please have a brother or sister now? I''d really like a baby brother or sister. How do you make those, anyway?"
And then Joep crashed the car.
I''m not sure what happened after that, but I do remember thinking how kind it was of Calvin to not be picky about the gender of his requested sibling. And for immediately forgetting his question once he realized his tooth was almost out. He''s considerate (and easily distracted) like that.
