My hole

It's happened and so soon. My little girl has already lost her first tooth. I swear, she has just turned 5 and already she's sporting the Jack-O-Lantern look. It was loose for several weeks and after eating an apple one afternoon she came running into the kitchen and said, "Mommy, look it's really loose now!" Man, and it was. I pulled it back with my thumb and it popped. The only thing left to do was yank it out, and I did.

She was a great sport about it, actually she didn't complain at all and was very excited. After we stopped the little bit of bleeding and showed her brother, she raced to the mirror. I hear her squeal with excitement about her new look from down the hall, then footsteps racing back my way....."Mommy, I can't wait to go to school tomorrow and show everyone my hole" Needless to say, I giggled and agreed that yes, it will be fun. However, it's not anything I want to hear her say at 16, while flying out the door for school. (My word, the years to come!)

That's hilarious! It just now dawned on me that someday I will be doing the tooth thing with my boys...and I'm kind of scared. Good to know your daughter was a good sport about it though- hopefully I'll have the same luck!

Nothing like kids actually WANTING to lose their teeth. I'm dealing with just the opposite with Emma!

And was the tooth fairy good to her?

I was just wondering the other day when it would be that my son would lose his first tooth. It's been awhile; I forget these things!

That is so sweet. "My hole" . . . yes, it's sweet at this age but it could be scarier later on in life. :)

She looks so proud there! What a great moment to remember.

Did the toothfairy treat her well? What is the going rate for a tooth these days?!!?
