Tooth Fairy

My daughter has eagerly been awaiting a visit from the Tooth Fairy since her brother had his first visit almost two years ago. So when teeth started getting loose, EVERYONE had an hourly update - for weeks. We all just wanted them out, but I was far too squeamish to try. Big brother even offered a little oral dentistry help, to no avail:

Lo and behold, my littlest trooper pulled the tooth out herself. Ouch!

I remember taking this picture when those little teeth first came in!

Her great aunt made this wonderful little pillow and she popped her little tooth right in the pocket:

Elephinio, the elephant, offered his services to hold the pillow on his mighty tusks.

The Tooth Fairy left a gold dollar coin and a little note. She was a bit scared of Elephinio's tusks, but knew he must be friendly if my daughter was sleeping nearby. My daughter is still carrying the note around.

And her biggest wish, besides a visit from the TF, was to drink with a little straw in her tooth gap.

How cool - she's a big kid now!

How exciting for the DD, and perhaps a bit bittersweet for her Mom and Dad. And maybe a bit unfair overall, considering how much trouble those baby teeth sometimes could have beeen when coming in! Congrats all around!

Congrats on the tooth fairy visit. What a big girl to pull it all by herself!
