Growing Up

It seems that despite my constant attempt at denial, I have to admit that the girls are growing up. Last night, we found out that Leah has a bottom tooth coming in behind her baby teeth. Her top tooth is still loose, but is only slowly getting more loose. Now she has the new bottom tooth. It is just a matter of time before she will lose that baby toothed smile. She has an appointment with the dentist for a check up in a few weeks, so we will just wait until then to see if the dentist wants to do anything about the baby teeth. This same thing happened to Allison and the dentist pulled her four front teeth on the bottom. I think I was more worked up over that than Allison was!

Another indication that the kids are growing up involves Halloween. This weekend, we stopped by a Halloween store and bought costumes. After all the years of Teletubbies, Tigger, Snow White, fairy costumes, etc., I was a little sad to see that the girls wanted to be "scary" this year. Allison got an alien costume and Leah got a witch's outfit. She has been a witch before, but this time she wants white face paint and black lips. Rachel still lets me pick her costumes, so she will be a cheerleader. She already has a little outfit with pom-poms, so all I will have to do is put her hair in ponytails. She is not one to want a costume that is too confining, so maybe she will be okay with wearing this, and she will be happy that there are no accessories to wear. In the past she has hated the fairy wings, the witch's hat, and the lion hood. Just as I am getting the hang of the Halloween costumes, i.e. sparkle hair paint is okay, but black hair paint is a no no, styling gel on dry hair is even a bigger no no, etc., I will have kids too big to want to dress up. What a waste of valuable knowledge.
