The last time I wrote, I mentioned that Little Bear had gotten upset over her first loose tooth. Well, last night Little Bear lost that tooth! She lost it in the dead of night, apparently. How do you lose a tooth at two in the morning? What was she doing? Having a dream about eating corn on the cob, perhaps?
Anyway, Little Bear is now happy as a clam about her lost tooth, which she is saving in a plastic baggie until she can put it under her pillow tonight. She's been showing everyone and anyone. She wanted to show you, too!
That's not all the excitement Little Bear had! Her grandma has a motor scooter that she rides all around town. Monkeyboy has ridden on the scooter, as have Megan and Sarah, but never Little Bear. Last night Little Bear got to take her first ride on the back of the motor scooter!
Pretty exciting weekend for a not-quite-six-year-old, don't you think?
In other news, the puppies have started to go to their new homes. Tigerlily's family was already committed to taking Guinness home, but at the last minute on Thursday night they decided to take Butter too. (They named him Miller. Get it? Guinness and Miller?) I'm so happy that Guinness and Butter... I mean Miller... are going to get to be buddies! They are living it up at their new home, spending hours and hours romping around outside, wrestling together, and being snuggled and played with by everyone in the family.
The next puppy to go to his new home was Shakers. Jimmy's brother and sister-in-law (Becca's parents) came and picked him up on Friday. They're going to call him Biggie (not to be confused with Big Guy, which is what we call the largest puppy!) I think Biggie is going to be the most spoiled puppy! He's already got a soft new bed, a blanket, and new toys! Plus there are no little kids in the house (Becca and her sister Patty are fifteen and twelve) so Biggie will have a much more peaceful household. Here's a picture of him all snuggled up in his new blanket, right before his new family took him home!
Luna has been going on visits with Little Bear's grandma and Sarah and Megan, and she'll eventually be going to live with them. Pepper, whose new name is Ily (for I Love You) will be staying with us, of course. And Sherbert will most likely be going with Tigerlily's dad's brother, where she'll be another spoiled little pooch! The only puppy who still needs a home is Big Guy.
I'm gonna miss all those puppies!
