Miss A lost her top front tooth when she bit into a tortilla chip. It was a bloody gross affair, but Miss L and Super J were very very happy for her. Miss L finds she does not do well with loose teeth. Or the moment a tooth becomes officially "lost." Sooooo wiggly, soooo bloody. So queasy.
Miss A found the dollar the Tooth Fairy left her, and was very excited.
Miss L lost two pounds, without walking or anything, which finally broke through some invisible barrier that she has not been able to get below for MONTHS. Huh. Go figure.
Miss O found herself struggling with constipation for two hours last night and finally found relief after ejecting the enormous blockage of poo that had been causing the trouble.
Miss O found herself happily rewarded for such a valiant effort with Diamond Castle "I Feel Connected" Barbie, because she did, after all, do the amazing deed On. The. Toilet. Wahoo! Now if only we could just get her to do that consistently...or even pee on the toilet. Sigh.
Miss L wondered if she'd lost her mind giving Miss O a Barbie that "sings" and makes other flashy noises, until she found the battery was already starting to lose power (yes, Barbie has been singing non-stop for a long time now).
Miss E found herself, initially, putting pretty much every shirt she wore this week on backwards.
Miss L wondered how her second eldest daughter lost the ability to discern front to back. Seriously. Look at the picture. HOW did she manage this?
Miss Q found herself with another cold (curses!!!) and lost much mucus via the snot sucker that Miss L attacks her with several times a day. Miss Q has found that she hates it when Miss L puts saline drops in her nose, because she knows what is coming next.
Super J lost his job. Super J found employment again when he was, kinda, rehired back at his job. Super J felt lost, in general. Miss L found herself at a loss for words at his lostness.
Super J found he was in the middle of a power struggle at work, so Super J put himself on paid leave starting this afternoon until said power struggle gets resolved, thus finding the best solution to this terribly weird and exceedingly stressful situation. Happily, all upper management and financial partners agreed to this.
Miss L lost it while sitting, idling, in the carpool lane waiting to pick up Miss A from school and wept like a crazy woman once she learned about the outcome to said weird situation, as she found herself succumbing to the stress and events of the last week. Luckily she found a shred of dignity in time as she quickly put on sunglasses, so no one was the wiser, and found herself feeling much better after the emotional meltdown, which was also peppered with many prayers of gratitude.
Miss L's stress eating of the week led her to find those 2 pounds again. Argh.
Miss A has just shown Miss L that she has found that her second front tooth is very very loose. Ugh. Miss L may lose her lunch.
