It has been such a long time since I smelt my favourite smell - rain on hot cement!! I LOVE the smell - to me it is a smell that has a wonderful gritty taste to it! Weird I know!!!! But it doesn't happen very much and after a warm overcast morning the heavens opened up and we had a downpour and there is now more this evening - please keep raining for the whole week!!!
Another episode in the "I am a really crap mother" continuing saga!!! Zoe has lost about 6 teeth now! Well Zoe has wanted to keep all her teeth up until now! She is not fazed about money and would rather keep her teeth!! Well Sunday night she decides she wants to see what the Tooth Fairy will pay for her latest tooth. I make a note to myself to get my act together and not forget!!
Monday morning Zoe walks into the kitchen
Zoe - "Oh Mum the Tooth Fairy didn't come!"
Me - "Oh darling, I think the Tooth Fairy doesn't work on Sunday nights. She has to have one night off"
Zoe - "Oh Mum, the Tooth Fairy forgot again!"
Me- "Oh Darling, maybe she had too many teeth to carry as she had a back log from yesterday. I am SURE she will come tonight"
At about 1am I am fumbling around the house looking for $2. Where are my husbands trousers full of change when you really need them. I turned off the hall light to make sure Zoe doesn't wake up and I quickly exchange money for wtooth.
Zoe - "Oh Mum, the Tooth Fairy took the wrong tooth!"
Me - "You have got to be kidding!!! When did you put the other tooth in there?"
Zoe - "Yesterday. I wanted her to take the right one."
Me - "Well the light was really bad last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
