The Toothfairy comes tonight!

My daughter, Aurea, is six years old. She lost two teeth in a row when she was barely five and hasn't lost any since. A couple of weeks ago, her top front tooth became really loose to where she could wiggle it. It stayed that way! That tooth got more loose every day, but she would NOT let my mom or I pull it. We didn't force it cause we figured she would come around or it would come out on its own.

As she was getting ready for school this morning, she said, "Look Memaw (my mom), my tooth is wiggly!" Yes it was. So wiggly in fact that it was actually twisted upside down!! I did not know that was possible! Needless to say, my mom pulled it out for her without even really trying. The stubborn tooth finally came out.

Aurea was upset at first because it still bled despite hanging halfway out of her mouth! Once the bleeding stopped and she realized the tooth fairy was going to come tonight, she was really excited! That is all she has talked about since she got home from school.

Awww to be 6-years-old!!

My daughrer is 5 so far she has lost 2 teeth but we have not found one yet. One was noticed missing after eaten chicken. And the other one was gone one morning when she woke up.

Awwwww - that was sweet. I know my 6-year old lost her first tooth this past Christmas. I thought it was so special and that she'd always be able to remember that day. However she was all sad about it because she wanted to lose her first tooth at school so she could wear a special tooth necklace! LOL - go figure!

Glad to be back and able to join in on all the blogs again! Feels great!
