Ten Things To Smile About - July

I CAN NOT believe that another month has gone by! We had a great July and here are some of the highlights!

1. Watching fireworks through our bedroom window.

2. Putting Daisy down for her nap and saying to her "It's time to go Ni-night."
And then Miss Sassy Pants pointed her finger at me and said, "NO, Mom!"

3. Ashton lost his first tooth!

4. Ashton telling us at dinner that he is not a big fan of the chicken in the lasagna that was made with ground beef.

5. Ashton losing his 2nd tooth with the help of his big sister because their parents are too chicken!

6. Bailey using an eyeglass case as a wallet to hold his money from the tooth fairy. He lost his 4th tooth this month! Lily added his name with cute pink stickers.

7. Lily wanting to set the record for Most Consecutive Nights of Sleepovers with her BFF. They conned 4 parents in to letting them have sleepovers 3 nights in a row.

8. The boys getting so good at swimming after 4 weeks of swim lessons. I bought water wings at the beginning of summer and never even opened the package!

9. Staycation!

10. I may have 1/2 of a smile because my kids went back to school today. Just thinking about nap times where rambunctious kiddos wake up sleeping babies. The house is very silent today!!

What have you been smiling about lately? Tell us all and link up with Emmy Mom - One Day at a Time.

Great great list! Love the money holder :). I don't know if I would be brave enough to pull out teeth either. That staycation spot looks awesome!

School already? We don't go back till September. And by we I don't mean me. I'm off mommy/aunty patrol.
I love staycations! Fun! We did something like that during spring break for my niece Rose. I was so tired afterwards.

Jules said...

Love the "tooth holder". Sounds like the tooth fairy has been visiting your house a lot this past month.

Great list again! You must be one of those lucky girls with kiddos in year round school - I wish, I wish, I wish . . . We still have another month of trying to occupy our people. Ugh! And sorry to say, but #2 totally made me giggle :)
