May was such a full month. Thankfully it was busy with the many good things we enjoy, the big things and those small everyday things.  Here are some of those lovely everyday things.


The Gerhardt Show

A couple weeks ago this happened. He was sooo excited. Losing these first baby teeth always makes me a smidge sentimental. I remember when those first teeth first appeared!

Our “Losing a Tooth” policy has been updated. We don’t do the Tooth Fairy but do give the babies some money for the first lost tooth and only the first lost tooth otherwise….. We were only giving them a quarter because A QUARTER WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEIR MAMA right? But with inflation and because we are only giving moola the first time we have bumped up the allowance to an entire dollar.

* I did issue back payment to Lily and Clara due to the policy update.

Way back on January 9th this little hoot started preschool. She goes along with Esther to the same teacher and class in the afternoon. She’s doing very well for being 3 and sweet Esther has been a great big sis about having Mercy join her at school.
