Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Snaggle Tooth

Thoughtfully penned on July 10th, 2012 and generally concerning Uncategorized

On June 27 we passed a new milestone in this house…E’s first lost tooth!

She has been anxiously awaiting her first loose tooth since she was about four and a half. This bottom tooth got slightly wiggly a couple of months ago, and I really hadn’t thought any more about it. On the 26th, she came to me with another mouth issue, and while I was looking in her mouth my finger bumped against this tooth. It was so loose it practically fell down!

Her daddy tried to convince her that the tooth had to come out before she could eat dinner, but she was having none of that. The next morning she asked for apple for breakfast, and while she was eating it the tooth popped out. No tears, no blood, no drama. That’s how loosing a tooth should be!

As most of you know, we don’t do Santa, the Easter Bunny, tooth fairy, etc around here. So when she asked when the tooth fairy (knowing it was really mommy and daddy) was going to come the following conversation ensued…

Me: maybe the tooth fairy won’t come at all.
E: but that wouldn’t be fair.
Me: why don’t you think it would be fair?
E: because the tooth fairy visits everyone else!
Me: well, what do you think the tooth fairy should bring?
E: I don’t know.
Me: what if she only brings you 3 pennies?
E: okay!

So, the tooth fairy brought her 1 dollar and 3 pennies. And she is very proud of her lost tooth and her money!

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. She is indeed proud of her lost tooth! E is growing up to be such a sweetheart and so proud of the little milestones as they come along. She’s my precious oldest granddaughter and I am so proud of her!

  2. aww that’s so cute! reagan’s just started getting loose yesterday…her first one…i can’t believe it. i feel like mommy to such a big girl, don’t you? oddly enough, it’s the same one E lost :)

  3. Love that she got one dollar and three pennies. Toothless grins are so cute, but they always made me sad as well. I hated when they started losing their little kids look!
