Tooth fairy and other jobs I have had

Tonight, my facebook status reads:

“I just got to play tooth fairy for the first time… though I did tell him that before I was his mommy I used to be a full time tooth fairy. I don't think he believed me.”

I so wish I could go into more detail about this, it is terribly bitter sweet. It was not a normally lost tooth, and that is all I will say. If you know me, email I can tell you more but it is more about my still reeling from how choices affect us and our children and even our grandchildren… and though there was no real choice in any of the generational choices involved (I really do believe three generations have all made the best of the options offered) I am still reeling from this experience in that mommies take on the weight of the world when their babies hurt.


Yes, as a Latin American I have a taste for acronyms. I have added this new one: RILM (random interesting life minutiae)… as a place to show you things that come across my path that leave me in awe of what a marvelous place this universe is:

So, with that in mind it is very fitting that I chose to be my very fist thing that I present to you of things that I find interesting, (drum roll)  this link.

It is a marvelous place indeed.

Random thoughts

I was perusing the pictures about the flood in Pakistan and one face (it was the hair, really) seemed to stand out from the pictures, to the point I believe I recognized him in the second set of pictures that put up in “The Big Picture”

Here are his two photos:  ONE    TWO

Here are the two sets:   AUGUST 6th        August 11th

I think it must be the fabulous hair color that drew me in and made him recognizable to me, or at least I hope I am seeing one person.. there are subtle differences between the pictures.

Who knows, but I will say I am intrigued by the whole of his face and hair…
