first tooth

Colette lost her firt tooth today.

Pretty cool stuff. It has been loose for a few weeks now. Tonight it finally popped. She was very excited at first, but then it started bleeding a bit. She’s never seen that much blood, nor tasted it before. It wasn’t that much blood though, just enough to drip a bit.

Then she had a big dilema. Should she keep it or give it to the tooth fairy. She decided to give it to the tooth fairy and ask if the fairy would leave it with some money.

hehehe. cute.

BTW, Jason Alexander wrote a childrens book about the tooth fairy. Bastard spoiled the end by revealing that it was the parents doing it! We were reading it to Colette at the book store and it was too late to stop. We had to tell her it was just a story and that the tooth fairy was real…if she wanted it to be…which she did.

Damn it, what was Alexander thinking? No joy in that story. No real payoff. Just a spoiler for a puzzle that kids don’t even ponder. Shit head IMO.

Anyway, I’ve got lots of ranting to do these days 🙂

I got some video and pictures of the toothy event 🙂

new camera

Got me a new video camera for fathers day.

I have never really had one. So Friday, Kim says that for Fathers day I get to get a video camera. Now, we have to do it Sunday as Kim is due the following Friday and we must have a video camera this time around. We have about two hours of Colette’s child hood on video.

Saturday night I do some intense online research into cameras and come up with three possibilities. The Cannon Elura 90, the Sony HG-42 (i think), and the Panasonic PV-GS150. All from 600 to 700 dollars.

My eye is set on the Panasonic as it’s got three ccds for capturing color as opposed to the other two that have only one. I don’t know if it makes a difference, but it sounds cool, eh?

We hop down to Fry’s electronics where I hem and haw for about an hour over the three and end up getting the Panasonic.

It is cool 🙂 It even takes low res still at 2.3 megapixel. The best part of all, is that it has a joy stick to move around the on screen menu!
