Bittersweet growth


My son has had a momentous week. He completed one year of kindergarten and lost his first tooth. I am starting to feel like Claire on the most recent episode of Modern Family!

After he lost his tooth, which he was so brave about doing, I thought a tooth monster should be made. Together we sewed this little guy.

My proud 6 year old was the head designer and even helped sew it a bit. I found this one after we made ours and he is sad that his did not have more sharp teeth. I also regret not making the pocket mouth a tad bit bigger so the dollar bill doesn't fall out. Oh, and he wanted to add the little cape/wing thing on the back ;0




Along with the last week of kindergarten I gave my son's teacher a little paper sack of mini pencils and a bag of these adorable mini-apple treats from those smart Crafting Chicks. Well, actually, we gave them to her during Teacher Appreciation week, but they would work for thank you's for a great year as well. I used mini nutter-butter cookies because the oreo's were sold out (it was the last day of the sale, I should have known). And they were still cute and tasty!


I tried sewing the wax bag of goodies shut. Sadly though, the "s" in Mrs. didn't come through so I had to pencil that in. haha. I really wanted to re-sew it but I was already running late so that wasn't an option. It's the thought that counts, right? It doesn't have to be perfect.




Sigh, my first born is done with his first year of education. At least he held my hand after his T-ball game on Saturday. He initiated! That melted my heart! I look forward to a great fun filled summer which I hope to blog about this week. Print Friendly and PDF
