In other tooth news...

Darcy's lost four teeth in one week!

Apparently, lost is not the right word to use...

She has been wiggling anything remotely jiggly to make pulling them out easier...

All to make more money!

We advised that she best find another way to make money or soon she'll only be only able to eat soup!

Peanut Butter Cup

Darcy got this in her Christmas stocking.

It was really quite big.

It was going to require a really big glass of milk to go with it.

Much to her disappointment, we shared it.

It was like a mini pie piece!

My family was disgusted that I used a fork to eat what essentially was a chocolate bar... It was huge though and I think I enjoyed it more eating it that way.  I was able to eat it slower and really savour it without it falling apart and starting to melt on my fingers.

Maybe Mom won't notice...

That Monday night that I arrived home from the hospital with Caelan...

I found this?

ummm... Why is there a hobbit poster in the middle of our hall?


So apparently, the story is really funny... 

So funny that it took a while for everyone to stop giggling to be able to tell it to me.

So funny I'm told that we'll look back on this years from now and still be laughing.

(I think it was probably nervous laughter, because Momma was not impressed.)

This all went down that same Monday before I came home with Caelan.
Damian was home with the girls who both had miserable colds.  

Ry told the story like this:
It's partially my fault anyway... (giggle, giggle) so... we were in your room and I was leaning across the bed with my feet against the wall, balancing, but the gap was too wide.  By the way there is a tiny crack in your wall too. (giggle, giggle) So then Dad and I were in the hallway and he wanted to show how ninja he was and I was saying 
"If 95 lbs. of pure fury can put a crack in your wall, imagine what..."  
Next thing we knew there was a hole in the wall about the size of Dad's foot.
"Do you think Mom will notice?"
and Dad said 
"If we put a white piece of paper over it and dim the lights Mom will never notice."
Darcy had the brilliant idea to put the Hobbit poster over it.

another pearly white

Ronan's first top tooth has finally cut through...

Feels like it's been weeks coming since we first saw the outline in his gums...

time is slipping

So many things that I want to blog about...  So many pictures to share and stories to tell.

Time is my enemy, it's just going too fast.

Time and Ronan, who thinks it's his mission to pull every cord that's attached to the computer, push all the buttons, empty every cupboard and drawer, clean off any surface within reach.

All boy that one.  Busy to the extreme.  Full of energy.  Most of the time, happy.

Which means limited computer access for Mom = no blog posts.

Hoping to catch up soon...

Ronan has decided that I should reorganize our tupperware cupboard everyday, sometimes two or three times!

I really shouldn't complain because this is one of the only cupboards that I let him in to.  Under the sink is child locked because of the garbage, dish soap and dishwasher detergent.  I've also locked the pantry cupboard since he was pulling large bottles of olive oil and other heavy stuff off the shelf and I was afraid he'd hurt his toes.  The other cupboard that's locked has the kids colouring books, paper, pencils, pens, crayons, glue, markers, stickers, etc., in it.  He does have access to the tupperware, pots and pans and the cookie sheets in the oven drawer.

It used to be that we only had to worry if one of us left a cupboard open, but my boy is smart.  He's figured out that he can pull himself up against the cupboard door and then use the handle to open the door just like everyone else!

He's even mastered moving the computer chair out from in front of the computer cabinet so that he can open it up the same way.  Now there's a child lock there too.  Unfortunately, I'm still trying to teach him that he's not allowed to get at all the cords behind the computer.  He's unplugged the internet more than once.  Now I'm trying to rearrange furniture so the cords aren't so accessible.

He's a little bundle of trouble.  Busy, very busy.  Full of mischief.  All boy.
