Thursday is usually You Can Quote Me, an image or thought linked to my One Little Word, Serenity.
Today is going to be a little different.
That little thing on the 32ct mermaid tail? That’s my last child’s first tooth. This morning was the last time I get to be the tooth fairy (I’m assuming some kid at school will burst his tooth fairy belief today).
It’s bittersweet to be watching this boy grow up. He is an unexpected gift from God, even during the tantrums. We’re blessed to have him.
Today’s lesson then is to hold on tight to the good memories. They will bring you a feeling of peace even in moments of pain.

With my son now 30, I miss those things like Santa and the Tooth Fairy. Although he still likes his Easter Egg Hunts!
My nearly 21yo is coming home on Christmas Eve so she can have a stocking this year!
I think the traditions they had as a child ground them as adults! It’s hilarious to see my 30 year old walking around with an Easter basket looking for the eggs!
