26/52: Missing Teeth and Purple Potatoes



We had already planted red and yellow potatoes, but when we were at the garden store and saw purple (technically blue) potatoes, I couldn't help myself! So we planted a few of those late and harvested them last week. I figured hey, the kids still don't like regular potatoes, but maybe purple potatoes!

Nope.

They still don't like them. Even roasted with shallots (seriously, amaaazing!). They're so pretty though, I think we'll plant more next year. Purple skin, light purple inside, and turns blue when they're cooked. How cool is that??

Cecilia has been asking when I think she'll lose a tooth. None of them seemed loose, but she's 6 so we knew it'd come soon... Well, one day during dinner she pulled a tooth out of her mouth! I thought she was joking and had a piece of rice, but apparently she had felt something strange, noticed her tooth was loose, and pulled it out herself! She's insisted that I tell everyone. 

Everyone.

The entirety of facebook, the men building our fence, our priest, her best friend's mom... Everyone.

Now she tells me she's working on making a quilt for Edith. Considering the handkerchief she planned on making me for my birthday that got abandoned quickly, I don't have high hopes for the quilt project! But I'm glad that I can give her a drawer full of remnants and space at my neglected sewing table. I never get to sew there, but she does!

P.S. Today is the day the MuTu sale starts! Details in this post, but you don't want to miss this sale - I've never seen a discount this big!
