Samantha is Six!

Sammy has had a happening month so far. After weeks of wiggling, wriggling, pushing and prodding...she finally lost her first tooth. She was quite excited. That happened on Veteran's Day. So of course the tooth fairy didn't make it that night. (Something about taking holidays off.) And then the next night nothing. But luckily for Sam after two long nights without a dime, the tooth fairy left a reassuring note that she did not forget Sam and that she "had a flat wing' and was also excited that Sam lost her first tooth and left her some cash.

Quinna wasn't excited.
This is the second time Sam has received cash this week. Aunt Les sent her some for her birthday. But it's really pissing Aquinna off. Aquinna got cash for her birthday in May, which she claimed she didn't want anymore so she ripped up. Garrett's May birthday card never made it so aunt Les sent him a half birthday card with some mu la this month. Again, Quinna is upset. Quinna being upset and pissed isn't just that. Her being upset includes yelling, stomping, throwing herself on the floor, throwing items (especially remotes) across the room, pounding her feet loudly up the stairs etc., etc. So, by the time Sam opened up her birthday gifts on Friday two more had money in them which led to....yep you guessed, two more of Quinna's fits. (I've fixed two xbox remotes and the TV remote all this week. I'm quite handy when it comes to stuff like that.)

Samantha did have a great birthday. She had a little party with her friends from school. She received some neat presents and whined a lot.

These are the lightbulbs I got for Sam. (The Easybake Oven came later )

That's what happens when you are nice to your kids and do special things for them. They whine, fight and argue just so you forget why you spent time and money on them. Garrett is especially skilled in this area. But I keep on doing nice things because I love them and I love to see their smiles even if it's only for a moment. Somehow that moment is worth it.

What a good mom to put up with all that junk! And I love the tooth fairy's flat tire note--I am going to have to remember that just in case ;)

Happy Birthday Sam!
