Big news. My son JUST lost his first tooth. He is 7 years old. All his friends have lost many teeth. He has a very, very low pain threshold and this has put him over the edge. He's still crying to my husband about it. Unfortunately, I will forever be blamed. His tooth became loose on Sunday evening while eating dinner. It became loose and bled a little. For the last three days he's tried not to eat. He drinks bottles of yogurt drink to fill him up. Anyway, tonight he was playing with his sister and I said watch out you don't want to hit him in the mouth like this.... the rest is history.
The other exciting piece of my day is that my nephew arrived. He flew here, in part, to watch my kids when my husband and I leave Friday night for the Loire Valley to celebrate our 10th anniversary. He's playing with my daughter right now. She's having a great time with him. These are the times when I wish we had family closer by.
Today is Wednesday, so the kids had a half day. It was another beautiful day in Paris. We went for my son's weekly golf lesson at the Jardin D'Acclimatation. It's so much fun to spend a warm day there. I even went on a ride today with my daughter when my son golfed.
I picked up some Alsacien food for dinner tonight. Smoked ham, bacon, sausage and sauerkraut. Delicious. I had to find some French food for my nephew's dinner. Tomorrow I head out to do some tourist stuff with him. I can't wait.
