The Tooth Fairy lingers near

At the very beginning of the school-year, Bruce decided he had a loose tooth. All of his friends were losing teeth and he didn't want to be left out, so he told me he had a wiggly tooth. It wasn't that wiggly - until last week. It's been getting looser and even has a new tooth growing in behind it. It's coming out any day, and I'm hoping it falls out at school so I don't have to deal with it. I'm not a fan of blood and it grosses me out to look at the above photo, so I would be perfectly fine if his first tooth came home in his book bag wrapped neatly in tissues. We'll see though - we're about to the weekend.
In other random news, Phoebe and I spent the day on one of our epic shopping trips to Aldi. It's almost an hour away, so we go every few months (last time I went was early December) and stock up on non-perishables. It took awhile to check out and the cashier started chatting with me, asking where I was from. I told her and she said a new Aldi is being built in the Boston area. Hallelujah for cheapo groceries!

That's funny, I had never heard of Aldi until I came to Australia, and when people came to visit I would show them how they chuck your groceries in your cart thinking it was a crazy Australian thing. Then someone told me the store was in America(hahahaha).

I'm with the first comment, what's Aldi? Can it possibly be cheaper than Market Basket?

This store is awesome. It's based out of Germany and so they have a wide selection of yummy German chocolate. The stores are generally smallish, carry private labeled goods, and have a few quirks about them (bring your own shopping bags, bag your own stuff, get a quarter for parking your shopping cart, etc). Prices are great though. Flour was $1.48/5 lbs. Sugar $2.39/ 5 lbs. Wheat thin crackers $1.19/ box (they're $1.50 at Market Basket). Last time I went I got one-pound salad bags for 39 cents. Big bags of tortilla chips for 99 cents. And of course, yummy chocolate chips for $1.29/bag. Love this place.

We love Aldi. Mike always shopped there while on his mission since it was the most afforable place to buy groceries in Denmark on a missionary budget.

By the way, it is now owned by Trader Joe's. I have, on occasion, found the same product at both locations.
