Mr. J's Orthodontic Adventure

We were told when Mr. J was 2, that he was going to need braces. The dentist said his jaw was too small, and it was inevitable. Hubby and I both had them, so I wasn't overly surprised.  Fast forward to when he is 8 years old, and we are given a referral for an orthodontic consult.Not only do we find out he needs braces, but first he needs a rapid palate expander.

Tooth Fairy Free Printables

While at the dentist with Mr. J this week, I found out he only has 3 baby teeth left. I was in a little bit of shock. It had me thinking about the first tooth that he lost. It was 2 days after his 6th birthday. He and his dad had been at a soccer practice, and it fell out as he was getting into the truck.  Hubby found the tooth, and they came home to show me.

January 15th Monday Madness Giveaway Linky

The first week back to school went well, and we have all seemed to settle back into our routines nicely. We had some pretty cold weather over the last few weeks, and I am really looking forward to spring when it warms up!

2018 Reading List

My favourite reading spot, and the wrap hubby gifted me last year!
 I love to read. I could honestly spend (and often have) an entire day reading, completely forgetting about everything around me. Last year hubby bought me a soft, warm shawl/wrap from Chapters, and I love to curl up in it on a cold day with a great book. If I find a series I can get into, I end up devouring all the titles. When it comes to something like Outlander, I have read the series once, and am on book 5 for my second read through.  I am anxiously awaiting the next book, which doesn't have a release date yet.

The End of Christmas Break 2017/2018

I have to admit, that I was kind of dreading having the kids home for Christmas break this year. The two of them really don't get along, and while I used to love having them home with me, the last year or so has been very difficult with that. The constant fighting (and they have always fought, but as they get older it is worse) had me really not looking forward to it.
