Gotcha Day

Happy Gotcha Day, Kristen. It's so hard to believe it's been four years since I flew to Guatemala and had the sweetest little girl placed in my arms. People cannot believe how she has changed from a shy little thing into a social butterly.

We spent a fairly quiet day together. She had to stay home from school so she didn't give pinkeye to her classmates. We did get out this afternoon and go see the Hannah Montana movie, which we both really liked. We will do more celebrating Saturday night with some of the family.

The tooth fairy came to visit last night, a little sooner than we expected. I thought we probably had a couple of more weeks before her 3rd loose tooth would come out, but we had a little incident last night. I was going to take her to the after-hours clinic for her pinkeye, and I was rushing around to get her ready, helping her brush her teeth, and as I wiped her mouth somehow I knocked the tooth out. I don't think it really hurt her, but it really started bleeding and I think we were both a little shocked. I felt SO BAD! Once she was over the shock and realized that meant she'd be getting a visit from the tooth fairy, the rest of the evening she kept saying "thanks for knocking my tooth out, Mom".

Here's Kristen helping with dinner last night...before the tooth incident.

Happy Gotcha Day! I didn't know anything about her earlier so from reading lately I thought she was always a spunky outgoing girl. I love the "thanks for knocking my tooth out mom" too funny!
