Surprise! Penny lost a tooth today, and believe me when I say she was just as surprised as the rest of us. Unlike the last tooth, which hung on by a thread through three countries, this one was barely wiggly, and fell out into her hand after a bite of cheeseburger.
Now that she is missing teeth from either side of her top fronts, she has achieved Full Rabbit.

Exciting Friday!

Both Penny and Milo had their last day of camp on Friday.
Penny's camp ended with a gallery show/performance that was super fun. 
(Front and center, that's my girl)

We got ices afterwards and came home. It had been pouring in the morning and really humid so as we finished dinner I had to lie down, I was so tired. That didn't last long, though, because Milo pooped in the potty! We had made all sorts of promises about what he would receive when this happened, so we quickly put some underpants on him (also a major first) and hurried out to the toy store. We got him some Playmobil sets, and got home just as it started to pour again.

Tonight he repeated his performance, and was pretty upset that he didn't get another gift. I told him that if he put on underpants, he could use bathroom words all over the house, and that worked really well. Farts are funny (Hi, Miss Annie).

For bed tonight, instead of pajamas he requested to just wear underwear, like Penny, so that's going on. I took him to the bathroom at 11pm as I was headed to bed, and his eyes opened but there was nobody home. It was creepy, but he peed, so hopefully his bed will stay dry tonight! Fingers crossed!

Toothless wonder

We got back from an 11 day Scandinavian vacation four days ago, and Penny had a wiggly tooth for a couple of days before that. Penny's wiggly tooth has seen three countries. I brought along some Tooth Fairy supplies, but they turned out to be unnecessary. When I spoke to the camp counselor about it this morning, she let me know that they'd had a lost tooth on Monday and Tuesday already, so Penny completed the hat trick today.
