The twins were 6 years old today! Took their presents over - they were very excited and very pleased to get some money, too. They are both saving up for special toys they want!
The Twins' Replies to the Tooth Fairy
Yesterday morning, I was thinking about Elliot's tooth and I thought it would be great fun if the children received emails from the "Tooth Fairy". I searched the Internet. Found a poem about the Tooth Fairy, found a picture somewhere else (which I admit I nicked!). Put it all together for Elliot with music. Decided to use the same picture with a letter from the Tooth Fairy for Stephanie: "Congratulations Stephanie. You have a loose tooth!.....". Sent them off. Hopefully, they would get them before they went to bed. Well, they did. WOW! Were they a success. I think they went to bed rather late again last night - two late nights in a row, good job it is the weekend!
Here is Elliot's reply: (dictated to Mummy)
Thank you for the money. I was excited when my tooth was coming out and Grandpa pulled my tooth out and I was very brave and I didn't cry. Then Grandma took a photo of me. What time did you come last night? Did you come at 10 o'clock? I was in bed at 9 o'clock. I was very tired so I didn't want to stay up. My sister called Stephanie is a chatterbox and when I want to go to sleep she always chatters to me and I wish I could have seen you. Next time are we allowed to leave you a little present? I told people my tooth came out and I am very pleased. When my tooth came out my tongue could touch the gap and it felt very funny. Thank you for your e-mail.
Lots of love from Elliot xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I hope you have a nice time at your house. Where have you put my tooth?
Here is Stephanie's reply: (also dictated to Mummy)
Thank you for not leaving me out and I'll put my tooth when it falls out in a tin foil with salt and it will be in the same place as Elliot's. What do you make with the teeth? Do you make houses and do you make furniture? Do you make beds out of teeth? Do you only take good teeth or do you take good and bad teeth? I have a fairy watch so I can remember you all the time and do you have a name? I like your letter and I feel happy about you and I love you so much. I'll never forget you. I won't be sad if you don't reply because I know you are very busy.
Love from Stephanie
My daughter's reply:
You made their day sending those e-mails. Stephanie in particular is so happy and they both said to me 'so they really are real'. they 100% believe that your e-mails came directly from the tooth fairy and asked questions like 'how does she know my name, will the computer know where to send the reply'? Stephanie has been looking out of her window...
They wanted to reply because they were so pleased? All from them (although I changed some of the grammar). I did say that the Tooth Fairy may not have time to reply so don't get upset and they were fine with that.
The Tooth Fairy did find some time to reply. Seems Grandmothers have lots of different purposes in life!
The Tooth Fairy will be coming!
Elliot's first loose tooth was getting really wobbly. So, Grandpa asked him if he wanted him to see if it would come out today. He did! Elliot wiggled it himself for a while and then Grandpa got a tissue and... out it came. One perfect small white tooth. Elliot looked amazed and then delighted. Excitedly, he announced: "The Tooth Fairy will be coming tonight"! Stephanie had a loose tooth also but not anywhere near loose enough to come out. I could see she was every so slightly jealous! Grandpa got some warm boiled water and put a pinch of salt in it for Elliot to rinse his mouth. He was so happy he didn't mind at all. I decided to take a photograph so that I could send it to Uncle David.
Ten Weeks Old
My son sent me this superb photograph of Andrew, yesterday. He now weighs 12lbs 5ozs and has caught a little cold! However, he seems to be a strong little chap. He can turn over from his front to his back and keeps trying to sit up! Still lots of disrupted nights for his Mum and Dad, who are being kept pretty busy! Very grateful to David for taking the time to keep viewing my draft home page and pass on his thoughts and opinions.
Isn't he cute?
Went up to London today to say 'hello' to baby Andrew. He seems to have reddish hair and is an absolutely gorgeous and super little chap. We fell in love with him immediately! And his Mum and Dad are so proud of him! Of course, he spent most of the time sleeping but we all got a cuddle. Poor Shelley is still suffering but looks radiant.
A New Year Baby!
At last, great news! After pacing the floor all morning, my son telephoned at 12:15 pm to tell us that we have a new grandson, Andrew Nicholas (7lb 3oz), born just before midday. He is David's and Shelley's first baby. Shelley had a bit of a rough time but both mother and son are doing well. Looking forward to seeing them all. Rang all the 'Great Aunties' in France, Spain and England to tell them the news. Everyone is very excited and delighted! Well done, David and Shelley!
