Monday (11.6.17) was a big day for Ms. T! She lost her front, bottom tooth. It’s been loose for a couple of weeks now as her big tooth fully surfaced and has been been shoving this tooth out! She was messing with it a lot last night and it’s been bothering her when she eats lately, so we knew it was only a matter of time.
I helped her brush her teeth because she was scared to brush that tooth. It seemed pretty sturdy and I told her it would probably be in there for a few more days and not to worry too much; it will come out when it’s ready. The kids were playing a game and she looks at me and says, “Mom, I think my tooth it ready, can you pull it?” I asked her to let me feel it, I couldn’t imagine it had loosened so much in the past 10 minutes. I barely touch it and I SWEAR it flew out and landed in my hand. Her shocked look met mine and then her face LIT up with pure joy! She had LOST her first tooth and she was SO proud!!
Caden keeps telling me he’s also a big boy, but he just hasn’t lost any teeth yet. I adamantly agree with him and let him know that he too will soon be loosing teeth! And until then, he has all his pretty teeth. I can tell he is so sad to not have a loose tooth like Tenley, but he is handling well and continues to ask her to see her new window!
I messaged Samantha quickly asking if she could help make us a coupon for Tenley and she sent back the cutest coupon for her to redeem for her tooth. Michael and I chose not to participate in the tooth fairy tradition and to make this a fun family event as they cross into being big kids! For each tooth, they get a fun surprise from mom and dad and we all enjoy a family outing! This tooth brought a free ice cream cone from Baskin Robbins!
