Janese and I were sitting quietly in bed a few mornings ago. It was peaceful, we were talking. It was nice. Then we heard the chatter from Will’s bedroom. So, of course, we retrieved him from his crib and he joined us. Then Ashley came upstairs and climbed into bed with us.
As were were all sitting there, Janese noticed that with the teeth Ashley has lost in the last few weeks, and the teeth Will has gained in the last few months, they were about even. I decided to get the camera (at Janese’s request, of course, since I wanted to just stay in the covers and pretend to sleep).
