The Tooth Fairy visits

We are in the throws of Tooth Fairy visits! She comes quite regularly to our house, except for Emma, who will sadly never see her again. But just when I was getting a little complacent, I was looking at my baby's mouth while he was talking and noticed something was amiss. I made him stop and looked closer. (He was not very cooperative!) And do you know what I found- a loose tooth! Not only loose, but loose enough to be coming out of it's socket. He did not want it yanked out by the dental floss, but we should have done it. The next day we came home from a date and found a tooth on the counter in a little baggie. What does it say about your life when your baby has lost his first tooth? I guess mostly it says, "you need to stop calling him baby!'' I think of that every time I call him "baby!"

I was alway amazed at how independent my youngest was. I guess they learn from the older kids. It looks like your "baby" is quite an independent and self-confident little guy.

Now the youngest is the baby forever but at some point you start calling them babe.

Tooth Fairy!! He never came to our house. Maybe next time Grandpa loses a tooth he/she will show up. What is the going price for a tooth? and what does the fairy want them for anyway?

I think if they are out of a grandpa's head they would definitely be more expensive then a baby tooth, because they would be lots bigger! And don't you know the fairies build all their buildings out of enamel!

I did not know that. I thought fairies made their houses of stickes and leaves. Or was that elves.
