Glitter and Sparkles

Can I just say, I love being the tooth fairy?! My job is soooo cool!! I get to bust out the fairy dust and my ninja sneakiness and make kids happy!! Tonight, a little boy lost his very first tooth!! AMAZING Right?! I love the first ones. So cute. So tiny. So scared. So excited!
He had his tooth in a little plastic bag (maybe someone should work on a tooth pillow for him) neatly tucked under the corner of his pillow, which made it easier to find. 
I heard that his brother was very sad that it was not his turn for me to visit so I made sure to leave him a little note too, letting him know that his turn would come and to be patient.

 I always like to write down the date of each tooth and where I gathered it from. I've heard it makes a nice little gift later on in life.....
Being the Tooth Fairy is a pretty awesome job and I wouldn't trade it in for the world.
Now if you don't mind...hopping around on these letters is exhausting so I must be off. other kids have teeth that fall out!

Otter Pops & Tooth Fairies

It was bedtime in the house. There were tears that come when a super fun day has come to an end. The kind of day that that's filled with birthday parties and cake, jumping in bouncy houses with friends, playing and dancing in the rain and a family movie night. After a day like that some tears are to be expected.
As he threw himself into bed he suddenly sat up in shock! The tooth that had been wigglier than a worm on a hook had been knocked so loose it was hanging by a thread....or root, take your pick.
His parents, thinking it not safe to sleep with such a wiggly tooth, gave it a gentle tug and out it came!!
And so it is that their oldest, their Ace, lost his very first tooth!!
A little scared at the thought that his tooth just came out, there were tears

After a cold rag and an otter pop, he's much more excited
Bring it on Tooth Fairy

And so it the boys would say "today is the first day the tooth fairy comes to our house!"

For my birthday Greg's mom called and asked if I wanted to do 5K with her called the Rampage at the RAC. 
I have NEVER done any kind of marathon so I was hesitant at first, but then watched the video on the web page found HERE and I was sold!! 
We're talkin a 5K that includes things like, a giant slip n slide, crawling through green slime, climbing up and over hay bales stacked 10 feet tall, jumping over cars Dukes of Hazard style, Leaping over fire and crawling through mud!!! Awesome!!
Me with Greg's mom and sister
 So for my birthday she signed us up!! I didn't want to die so I started "training" (I use that word very loosely). I ran 1 mile 2-3 times a week, and had it down to a rough 13 min mile (not bad considering I ran a 10 min mile in high I am NOT a runner) a couple days before I decided I needed to run more than a mile, since it was a 5K  I was doing. I did a rough 3 mile run (I think we figured it was about 2.7ish miles that I ran) in about 30 mins, so I was feelin pretty good about being "ready".  I had no intention of doing this as a race. It was purely for entertainment, feel good about yourself, I just want to finish kind of thing.  I soon found out that my best friend and her husband had also signed up to do it as well.

 I was so excited and very anxious about doing this but when it was time to go. I was ready to run!!!

 One of the first major obstacles...

The "wall" climb
 Up and over!

There was a good jog between obstacles, but it was still very difficult!

The sand dunes
ever tried to run with your shoes full of sand?!

Onto the "toxic trench"
It was very cold, and very slimy
This is what we were crawling through
Yes. that IS barbed wire goring across the top, forcing you in to the freezing cold "slime"
the barbed wire was plastic

After we got out of the mud pit

I lost my number in the mud =(

 We finished in just over 50 mins!
 We had a BLAST and plan on doing this every year!!
Next year we are going all out in the costume department!!
