Also, I have started a box of things I think I will want in the future for Tate's life. So that when I see things now, I can go ahead and buy them, put them in the bin, and then use them when the time comes (instead of the time coming, and then thinking "gosh, now that it's time, I can't find the perfect -'blank'- when I finally need it"). The first thing I bought was three packs of these paper straws, one in red, yellow and blue. I think they will be perfect for a future little boy birthday party: And when we were out shopping, I stumbled across these:
I was so inspired by these little envelopes by That Sky Blue. Instead of the typical tooth pillow, the idea of putting the tooth under a regular pillow and having it replaced with these little letterpress envelopes filled with a dollar is so sweet. These were expensive ($16 for 6), and after some frantic searching on Dawn's phone, we realized we would need at least 4 packets in order to accomodate all the teeth Tate will end up losing, so I think I am going to use them for inspiration. But a great find nonetheless!
