It started out innocently enough

Juliet wanted to hold the "baby" Betty,
It was bound to end this way

Bathroom destruction has begun

Ryan m is destroyong our bathroom. Though we will miss some of our old bathroom, I am hoping I can replicate the previous owner's  eye for detail. Let's take a look. First up, the vanity for ants. It really coordinated with our extra slim and short  shower door opening, which I did not get a pic of.

Next, the lighting fixture picture, in which  you can also see part of the wallpapered medicine cabinet (or can you? They are so cleverly camoflauged).

I can't say the last item was intended by the original owners, exactly, the process was probably more organic than that. This is a photo of the slimy festering cracks that surround our sink drain. Also note the wallpaper border attached to the mirror, because one should never miss a wallpaper border opportunity.

First days of school

The first day Ava was apprehensive but excited and when our neighbor came to pick her up she bounced right into the car. The second day it took me 90 mins to get her ready because all she would do was lay around and moan "I don't want to go to school" and fight me if I tried to put clothes on her. I was sad that the drama started so early in the year, but today she went with only a few protests.  At least she has her glittery shoes to keep her happy.

Snaggle tooth

Ava showed me her loose tooth one day in May. Later that day, she fell on some gravel and hit her face and one loose tooth became two very loose teeth. I have seen her baby a loose tooth before, never wiggling it and barely allowing it to be brushed but I still thought she would end up losing at least one of the teeth before school was out for summer. Here are the teeth today.

The teeth are practically floating and they now change shape on a daily basis. at one point she had a huge gap on one side which caused people to ask her if she lost a tooth. Now one is wonky forward and downward and one is wonky back. My question now is will se still have them when she starts school again in 3 weeks?
