The Tooth is Out There
For weeks, we've been anxiously awaiting the loss of the first baby tooth in our house. There's been a lot of wiggling of a certain lower front tooth, but I was starting to worry that the Bee's first lost tooth was going to be the incisor that she's having extracted tomorrow. In fact, we had a whole conversation before bed tonight about how, if the tooth came out in the middle of the night, the Tooth Fairy might already have been to our house, and might not notice it until tomorrow. We had fun naming the various other states and countries she might be visiting--Grandma in Paris! the twin cousins in Japan! But not to worry.
Because tonight, Mother Nature decided to take Father Science out back behind the woodshed. And consequently, no novocaine was involved in the loss of our beautiful girl's first tooth!
The Bee is the youngest kid in her class at school. Last year, when she was in kindergarten, she was really upset when some of her friends were losing teeth and she wasn't even close. Up until tonight, she was the only kid in her class that hadn't lost a tooth. No more.
Now, I just have to hope that I can scrape together tooth fairy money...how much is that again?
