kj’s fingers were covered in slimey blood.
and wiggling and wiggling
then, he let me pull it out!
his very first tooth to lose…
he has decided to not put it under his pillow until he sees the movie,
the ‘tooth fairy,’ which to be honest, i’ve heard is lame and i’m
not looking forward to those two hours…but we will all endure for this guy.
because his night was so exciting, kj asked to sleep in our room,
dusty & i have a red velvet chaise lounge in our room that is the coveted spot to sleep, if you are one of our kids.
kj also asked that i make him a burrito to sleep in…
how could i say “no” to that?
so, as i was taking quilts out of our linen closet,
i was reminding kj how special it is that we have so many
‘grandma connie’ quilts…
i was also reminding him how amazing his grandma was,
grandma connie was so talented, she was full of life, loving, forgiving,
and even though grandma connie has passed away,
she is still keeping her family warm with her quilts.
at this point in the conversation, kj said,
“yeah, we will get to see grandma connie again in the afterlife,
we’ll get to all live together again in the afterlife…
even with master chief.”
i couldn’t say “no” to that one either.
