Ever since Miss A first saw this episode of Charlie and Lola, she has been fascinated with the idea of losing her tooth. After waiting over a year, her turn had finally come! A week or so ago her tooth started to wobble…which was a good thing since she has what some refer to as “shark teeth” where her adult teeth are growing in right behind the baby teeth!
Then I took pictures of Miss A’s all baby tooth smile…I knew it would soon be gone forever.
Lil G, of course, had to get in on the action and show off the baby teeth she has so far.
Last night, the big event happened. Just as Miss A was getting ready for bed, she asked me to give the tooth a wiggle. I did…and pop! Out it came! There was much excitement as she examined her new smile. (She’s holding the baby tooth, the kit came with a sticky pad you put on the lid of the box, to keep the tooth in place).
So we prepared for the tooth fairy by leaving the box with the tooth inside and my old tooth fairy pillow just outside Miss A’s door. In the morning Miss A was excited to discover her tooth was gone! To be replaced by a shiny silver dollar and a certificate signed by the tooth fairy!
I remember what a big deal it was for me when I lost my first tooth…but I never realized it would be an even BIGGER deal when my baby lost hers.
