"How do YOU think?"
"I think moms do it."
"But how can a Mom be a Tooth Fairy?"

When Mother's Day Comes Early

"Let's make Mom a pwesent!!!" spoken in hushed tones by the two children who still cannot pronounce their "r"s.
Peanut and the Cuddle Bear disappear into the depths of the basement playroom.

"Hewe, Mom! Happy Mudder's Day!" shouts the Cuddle Bear. Peanut stands nearby with a grin.

I open the leftover birthday gift bag, peel back the left over birthday tissue and expose...

"What on earth..." Orange rolls of foam spill out. Thousands of them. Josh loves Amazon.
And I recognize them.

Peanut claps her hands.
"They're eaw plugs!" squeals the Cuddle Bear, "you can put them in your eaws when Pwincess sqweams!"

"Oh my. Thank-you, girls. That's so, um.... thoughtful."

Because, of course, it was.


  1. oh so cute, hope there is a picture!

  2. J, I wish there was! I couldn't find the camera- Josh had it with him.
