Update on Jack

I realized it's been a while since I've had an update on the kiddos.  I've decided to do a post on each kid, starting with Jack.

The latest and greatest news regarding Jack has been the loss of yet another tooth, making the lost tooth total 5.

This experience was particularily traumatic as it had been barely hanging on for quite a while and Jack finally asked me to pull it.  I don't do teeth well nor do I do calm and this required both.  Where's Captain when you need him?

Jack latest obsession is Transformers.  He has most of the Transformers thanks to Dad and Grandmother, who had the good sense to save the original Transformers all these years.  The obsession seems to be contagious as well.  Grandddaddy has become infected and now perfers to be known as the Granddaddy-inator.

It's hard to believe that in just two months my first grader will have graduated on to the second grade.  Jack, however, seems to think is a fairly small step.  Today his class was traveling to Georgia Tech for a field trip.  I couldn't find the paper detailing the purpose of this excursion so I asked Jack why they were going.  "I don't know," he shrugged, "I guess they think we're ready for college."

And speaking of Georgia Tech...GA Tech has become a frequent topic around our house as well.  Jack seems to have become a GA Tech fan, and for those of you who know us, you know we and our extended family are either die-hard Auburn or UGA fans.  Jack even has put up a Tech baseketball poster in his room he has acquired from someone.  I questioned him when he asked to put it up but it's hard to argue with his logic; he says he lives in Georgia and likes basketball.  Both true statements.  Oh, and the poster...it's not just basketball; it's women's basketball.

Awesome! I love that he knows where he lives, appreciates women athletics and vintage toys. He looks adorable with his missing teeth!

Lord, 'update on Jack' NOT a good title! I thought something was wrong.

Five teeth!!! I don't do teeth AT ALL. Lil' Bub wanted me to pull one out (he has lost 2 so far) and I just flat out told him 'no.' haha.

The women's basketball poster? HILARIOUS! ;)

I don't do teeth well either...they seriously gross me out when they start to wiggle. Henry and Grant are both up to 4 each:) How funny that he has a women basketball poster. I guess you've got to let them like what they like sometimes!

Makes perfect sense to me. I am going to encourage his GA Tech fanship...if for no other reason than to annoy his mommy and daddy!

Before you know it he will be ready for college. :(

LOL at the women's basketball poster. He's so cute!!

Buddy has now lost 9 teeth. He looks like an 8 year old in a 4 year old's body. Why are these kids losing their teeth so fast??
