Oh the Drama
Sadie turned seven today! I can't believe how old my kids are getting. She started the day feeling really sick - my boys have had what Micah calls "diaries in my bumb" off and on this week, along with the barfies. I sincerely hoped it had skipped Sadie, but dang it, she was feeling pretty crummy this morning.
She rested most of the day and perked up considerably this afternoon when she got one of her presents in the mail:
We had a little party for her tonight. My dear friend Megs and her family, plus my parents, came.
Sadie opened many My Little Pony-related gifts:
Jonas and Brynnan asked to be on candle-arranging duty:
Oh the mercuriality of her.
Dad also got her to consent to him pulling her remaining top tooth. It was dangling by some kind of fleshy thread for days. I couldn't get that thread to break, but my dad is the Tooth Whisperer. He pulled all of our teeth when we were kids. He was able to get that tooth outta there. He told me that you actually have to pinch at the top of the tooth to detach those pesky threads, as opposed to pulling down from the bottom of the tooth. Good to know. It looks much better now:
So yeah. Little girls are...interesting. Quite honestly, I feel badly for my parents that they had FOUR girls and no boys. Non-stop drama for years and years. Sometimes I'm glad I just have one girl. I can only handle so much turmoil.
