I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything. And no, Nariah hasn’t stopped with her humorous ways. I’ve just been slacking. I’m trying to get back on the ball.
We went to the playground today, and Nariah ends up meeting and playing with a couple of girls, one of whom is a couple of years younger. They are playing with a baby doll the other girl brought with her when all of a sudden she looks at Nariah’s face and says, “Wow… why are you teeth so big!!?!?!?!?
As a parent overhearing this you wonder if your child is about to get their feelings hurt, start crying or any of the other possibilities. Silly me… I forgot who I was talking about, this is Nariah. She, in a almost “duh…” type response, replies “Well… my teeth fell out….
Now the other girl is even more shocked. “Your teeth fell out?!?!?!  What the what?!?!!“.  Ok, so maybe “what the what” wasn’t said, but my mind surely did insert that into what seemed like the next logical thing out of this kids mouth was, given the conversation.
Yeah, I’ve lost 4 teeth, and I have 3 loose ones right now…“. Nariah then started giving this girl history of her teeth, from the fateful day when a wagon broke her first tooth at daycare to how she gets Tinkerbell instead of the Toothfairy to deliver her teeth money.

Toya and I just sit on the swings chuckling as we witness what started out as an potentially sensitive topic become a campfire storytelling session.
What’dya know? Crisis adverted.

I received this picture below from a friend of mine. It took me a few minutes to pick my jaw up off the floor and figure out what in the world I was supposed to say in reaction to this. I ended up at the playground with Nariah after school. I decided to show her and get her take on this picture.

She looked at it… Tilted her head sideways… Looked at me…. Looked back at it…. Said “Ummm“….

So I tried to help her out. “What do you think?
I don’t understand what it is, is this his hair? How did he do that? Why did he do that?
Would you get that done to your hair?
No
Nariah looks extremely bothered, and then looks up at me confused, “Daddy, did he ask his parents permission?
