H Lost Tooth 1

Congrats to H on her very first lost tooth! It happened while she was eating and they never found the tooth, so we assume it got swallowed. When I told her that the tooth fairy might not be able to give her any money if there wasn't a tooth to be collected, she didn't miss a beat - "Daddy, mommy took PICTURES. So the tooth fairy will KNOW I'm missing a tooth from the PICTURES". Then she went to bed really early because "You have to be asleep when the tooth fairy comes so I'm going upstairs to go to sleep!" All this in spite of the fact that she knows the tooth fairy is really mom & dad anyway. So she got 2 1£ coins (about $4), and today she bought a new princess activity book with it.

Congratulations, H! Good going on the proof, too. Those ones where there is no crying involved are the best.

Sounds like it was at school? Our kids were rooting for her to lose it on her birthday. But missing a first tooth on one's birthday is cool too. Isn't it wonderful how a missing tooth can change a kids' smile and make it, somehow, better? Congrats, H!

$4?!?! Amazing what a tooth goes for these days...

I know, Greg! And perhaps the worst bit is that she actually couldn't afford the coloring book - Mom had to chip in some change.
