Melody lost her first tooth on April 19th, 2014! She’s just about a month shy of her sixth birthday and with the loss of her first tooth, she couldn’t be more thrilled! She’s very happy about it and getting older. The tooth being loose for about two weeks came out easily during the evening hour of brushing before bed.

Today I took my children’s broken crayons and made new ones. I go through this process once, maybe twice a year. I can’t stand throwing away something that so easily can be used again.
