We will Miss you Scooby!

A Special kind of Puppy Love

Scooby went to Heaven on October 3, 2011. It was very sad for us this summer when we were half way around the world to recieve the call he may not make it until we return but he pulled through, tough boy! He was a fun pup who loved to swim, play ball, and entertain Cupcake for endless hours. He came into our life a couple months before we got married and Cupcake grew up with him. As sad it is to be without him, it was twice as difficult to explain to Cupcake....Her sadness S%&)*&).....Hugs & Kisses Forever!

Now I see I have missed Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and the most important- VALENTIME'S DAY-

It is so true time passes quickly as we get older!

Two nights ago Cupcake lost her first tooth. We were at Nana & Poppy's for dinner and my mother just gave her the cutest book with a little tine with a heart. About 2 minutes after we sat down for dinner, Cupcake calmly handed me her tooth.

What happened next, I wasn't quite prepared. She lost it! The site of a drop of blood and the site of herself in the mirror with a little (I mean tiny) gap in her lower jaw sent her through something I can't describe. She really thought she looked ugly. I was shocked. We were saying and doing all we could to make her feel beautiful but she was on LOCK DOWN- didn't hear a word we were saying. Just like she was a baby I videoed and played back for her and it calmed her immediately.

Later that night she made a plan. She wrote the toothfairy a letter (can you tell we have been reading Silverlicious) and asked the toothfairy to please not take her first tooth and her favorite candy is a rainbow lollipop. Since we explained to her the toothfairy has to take something to leave her a treat- she was very worried about her tooth being taken.

Being Superhero Dad, he left dinner early to start driving around to find a rainbow lollipop.

I waited until she finally fell asleep to snatch the note from the little tin which was in her little toothfairy pillow and put a shiney quarter and a rainbow lollipop in its place.

She must of woken up in the middle of the night. I heard her whisper- Mommy the toothfairy came.

I guess she left everything under her pillow and went back to sleep.

We woke in the morning, and she screeched she left my tooth and left me a beautiful rainbow lollipop. Her face was priceless. I think I held back the tears harder than ever before! She is such a big girl.

I will post a bunch of pics real soon- as soon as we return from her surprise trip this weekend!
