Abby's unlikely hero

Nakoto Nogimo

Nija warrior

Abby wrote him letter last night asking him to be her friend. She also wanted to mail him a nickle. Mason told her that he wouldn't be able to read her letter becase he only speaks Japanese.

Nettie is currently writing Obama because she says he loves her and he is coming to our house, Judah is arguing that he is not coming to our house. Most of you know how I feel about the new president, but I must bite my tongue. So my kids choose who they want to be their heros and I will let them dream. I may even send the letter to Nogimo if I could find his address.

New Abby

Last night Abby told me that she wanted to be a new Abby and she was tired of being the old Abby, she said that it would be nice if she could loose a tooth or something or get some braces or break an arm. She is five.

I have four kiddos and not one of them has yet to loose a tooth. Mason didn't get teeth until he was 15 months old. Abby was a bit sooner at 9 months, Nettie and Judah came with teeth, although Judah's really started coming in when he got proper nutrition. Mason is now 7 and it is not even close. I guess it's good because that means he can will have better adult teeth with less cavity exposure. My guess is like with riding the bikes, Mason and Abby will loose teeth at the same time, possibly on the same day. As for Nettie and Judah I have no idea.

We will not do the tooth fairy, I do know that, we will make it special but something unique to our family some kind of tradition that means something to us, something original. Any ideas?
