7 Quick Takes Friday: Lost Tooth Edition

In other news I did call the case worker yesterday (morning) and I haven't heard anything back yet.  And waiting hasn't killed me yet so... that's something.

It's become apparent since I started writing this, that Sadie believes that she can't talk without her tooth... making this the quietest morning I've had in at least a couple years.

Boomer ate his first food two days ago and it was (drum roll please)... Turnips!

I'd made mashed garlic onion turnips for dinner and it was the first food that he was presented with that he didn't think was completely disgusting.  He ate all of a teaspoon I'd guess, but it was actual food going into his mouth that he was interested in and that he seemed to be enjoying!

In other surprising news I realized that I actually like turnips!  I'm not sure I'd ever had them before I made them the other day, but they were actually very tasty!

Since Quick Take 3 she's realized that she can talk.  Quiet time is over.

After the tooth came out I promised Sadie a) cash for her tooth b) a lunch outing and c) that she can wear a princess dress out of the house today.

Because she looked that sad sitting on the couch without that tooth...  the story of me losing my first tooth while my sister was holding me upside down by my ankles almost made her smile.  Almost.

I have hopefully solved my camera problem.  I found a refurbished "tough" camera on ebay that claims to be water proof, ice proof, shock proof, drop proof and smash proof.

We shall see.  We shall see...

  1. Too cute about the lost tooth. I can't stomach turnips, parsnips or beets since I was a child. Maybe I'll give them a whirl.

    Love the new photos, throughout. Good luck with the new camera. We purchased the indestructible camera for our now 14 year old, only for her to lose it. I am sure they haven't come up with a solution for that one yet.

  2. You know, I don't think I've ever had a turnip! Ever! I'm not even sure I would know how to fix one. The mashed onion garlic turnips do sound intriguing though!

  3. Oh my goodness, poor Sadie but I can't help but giggle a little bit at her quietly handing you a TOOTH!!! At least she'll have a good story to tell :P


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
