Last night the boys were upstairs watching football while Taryn and I watched a new Disney Princess movie. It was fun to spend time, just she and I, watching a show and talking about princess stuff. It is times like this that I cherish with my little girl. And I know Vaughn loves it that Tyson FINALLY has an interest in football. It was a good night for all of us.

I have been listening to a lot of "Country" Music lately. I change my music choice every day, but today it's Country. If you haven't listening to "Country Boy" by Aaron Lewis, or "Red Dirt Road" by Brooks & Dunn, you are missing out! Listening to such songs makes my heart ache for Circleville and growing up there. I have mixed feeling about where our little family should end up. Since Vaughn just finished his last interview for the ER fellowship, my thoughts wander to where we will be in a year's time; here in Knoxville or somewhere else. And then what is next? Do we stay in Knoxville, TN, or move back west? Both places have a different appeal, and both have their own pros and cons. It is a tough decision for Vaughn and I because we want the best for the kids and want them to grow up in a place where they can participate in whatever they want. Ahhhhhh.

What more can I say. Well...actually I can say a lot, but here is the whole story in a nutshell.
Tyson came home today with another loose tooth. They are dropping out of his mouth like rain from the sky. Any how, so he shows me his loose tooth and wants to wait until Daddy gets home to pull it. Fine with me. Because the last time he and I pulled teeth, it took HOURS!!! So dad comes home and within 15 minutes they are in the bathroom trying to pull a tooth. It was a back and forth battle. Vaughn would try to get it out and Tyson would be backing away. I was in the kitchen, listening to all of this, laughing and feeling glad it wasn't me. Finally I hear Vaughn say, "Tyson let me see how loose it is." Then...
"DAD! WHY DID YOU DO THAT?" I knew exactly what had happened by Tyson's word choice and tone. Vaughn had removed the tooth without his son's permission. Tyson proceeds to come and show me the viscous mayhem that his dad did to him. Well...the tooth wasn't exactly out, it was cockeyed and hanging by a thread of skin, turned upside down in his mouth. I told him to pull it and that just started another eruption of rants from his mouths. No one was touching it and he was going to sleep with it that way! By this time I am about at the end of my rope and this is going to stop soon or else Mom is getting involved.
"Tyson," I said, "You have 2 minutes to get that tooth out of your mouth or I will sit on you and pull it out!" And then I set the timer.
(On a side note: I was on the receiving end of being sat on and having my tooth removed by my very own mother, while the visiting teachers were in the living room. But that is another story.)
I gave Tyson the count down. "One minute...thirty seconds," and at twenty-five seconds he mustered up the courage and pulled it out! Hallelujah, the angels sang!"
Now if I can just remember to be the tooth fairy tonight and not drop the ball on that one again!!!
