Vera woke up at 4 this morning. I hope this is not a new thing. I forget this about babies…every day is different. Stages don’t last long. But this better not be a stage.
While I sat there with her, it hit me that the Tooth Fairy had not done her duty that night. Sophie has now lost two teeth in the last week, her first two. Then my mind goes from one thing to the next, as my mind often does and I realize how much irony has existed in our days here in NC. Dates matching up perfectly, weirdo things that just so happen that make me stop and wonder if there’s a series of dots I’m supposed to be connecting. Irony like:
Sophie losing her first tooth a little over a week ago and losing her second exactly a week later….and Vera getting those exact same two teeth the same day.

The boys getting the worst stomach flu I’ve ever seen the day after my best friend flew in…when I needed a friend so badly.
Finding a letter recently full of compliments and mushiness about Jarrod written by the woman almost singlehandedly crushed him just a year later. Oh, and the letter was dated Vera’s birthday, 2012.

Failing my written NC driver’s test after spending a year and a half dodging some of the worst driving I’ve ever experienced.
A mouse of all things running right across my path when we’re out for dinner….trying to escape our mouse-woes.
What is that about?!
There’s many more I thought of at 4am today, but sleepiness and the day have made me forget.
I don’t know what it is. I wonder back to the connecting-of-the-dots, but then I start to feel dizzy so I stop doing that. Some things are so ironic it makes me laugh, but its really not funny.
And then I undoubtedly think about Alanis Morrissette.
