happy teeth

i guess february is teeth month at every school everywhere.  william and wes both came home with new toothbrushes and toothpaste.  reed came home with all sorts of tooth projects, and he will be sure to tell you that you need to brush your teeth "two times a day for two hours so they won't be sad and brown."  i think something got lost in translation somewhere, but nonetheless he is happy to brush his teeth.  for now.

they capped off teeth month by going on a field trip to the dentist.  they watched a bear get his teeth cleaned and then watched a monkey get some x-rays.

this was not the dentist that we go to, and he didn't understand why there was no movie on the ceiling for the bear to watch.  i think we've been spoiled by our dentist!!

this picture has nothing to do with teeth, but this is reed's favorite girl in his class.  her name is sadie, and they were deep in 3 year old conversation when i snapped this pic.  i love it because she looks a lot like my high school bff's little girl, mary laine.

this is mary laine.  see??  it's kind of weird, right?

what can i say?  he has good taste in the ladies.  as a bonus, he likes to vacuum.

and let's not forget.  he likes to brush his teeth, too.  for two hours.  twice a day.  some girl will be lucky to catch him one day!!

his first lead out

y'all remember having lead out before the big dance in high school.  everybody is all fancified (is that a word?), parents are all crowded around with cameras, and each couple walks out to an introduction.  i'm having an anxiety attack just thinking about it.  i've played in tennis matches and basketball games with tons of spectators....that's different.  please don't ever put me up in front of a group of people and make their eyes look at me.  stress me out!!!  today for valentine's day, the first graders got to experience that!!

it seemed to me that all the girls really loved it.  all the boys, however, weren't loving it so much!!  :)  but they did look cute!

knox and william ("please....is this over yet?")

a seriously cute rehearsal dinner picture for at least one of these boys!  jack, knox, william, and noah

i can say that i'm very proud of the fact that i'm now just one of those parents with a camera!!  happy valentine's day!
