my post about the tooth fairy pillow I made? How much my daughter wanted to lose her first tooth? Well, it happened last night over dinner! My daughter started to tear up and I asked her if it hurt and she said she crying because she was so happy. She then handed me the tooth and I started to freak-out (inside of course-I stayed cool in front of her) because it didn't look like what I was expecting it to look like. It's been a long time since I saw a baby tooth (my own) and I don't know what I expected it to look like, but what I was holding in my hand wasn't it. Did you experience that?
So, I called my sister, who has a ten year old, and she said it was okay. She's handy to have around because she's recently been through it all, so I can always run things by her. Plus, she already knows I'm a Nervous Nelly and doesn't judge or roll her eyes. (Or maybe she does, but we're on the phone so I can't see her do it.)
Once I was calmed down, the tooth went into the pillow and we awaited the morning. My daughter was very excited to find a note from her personal tooth fairy, 50 cents (we got off cheap, she's not in school right now so she doesn't know the going price) and a tooth fairy bracelet.
