Grandma's Gone Missing

"Mom, I lost Grandma."


Alex and Grandma headed out to Wal-Mart this morning for a few errands.

Didn't think he'd lose her.

Or, maybe she lost him.

Evidently, she told Alex to go get her a camera card. So he did.

When he came back to where he left her, she was gone.

Phone rang.

"Mom, what did Grandma come to buy here?"

Hmm, well, I don't know. Maybe clothes?

I sent him to the women's section to scan shoppers. After all, how many lost Grandma's could possibly be in Wal-Mart.

Phone rang again.

"She's not here."

Are you in the women's section, or misses, or juniors?

"There's a difference?"


A few minutes later, I got a text.

"I found her."

Well, where was she?

"By the birthday that was obvious."

The Bad Fairy

A lost tooth only means one thing.

A visit from the Tooth Fairy with money to share is close at hand.

Abby lost a tooth at school. She was so excited! Anna Grace spread the excitement with texts to Katie, Alex, and Daddy to share the news.

The tooth was lovingly placed under the pillow last night in anticipation of the arrival of the awesome Tooth Fairy.

The Tooth Fairy placed a dollar bill by her sink as a reminder to herself....and.... promptly forgot.

I was awoken this morning by two little girls who said....

"She forgot to come."

Huh? What on earth are you talking about?

"The Tooth Fairy forgot to come get Abby's tooth."

Oh my. The Tooth Fairy messed up.

Big time.

How do I remedy this situation?

After lunch and errands, I snuck into the girls room, swiped the tooth, and left the money.

Abby, for some unknown reason, checked under her pillow only ten minutes later.

Shrieks of excitement filled the air.

"Mom!! The Tooth Fairy came when we were getting your car at the garage!! I didn't know she could come in the day time!"

And Alex burst out laughing........
