Emma Loses Her First Tooth
We have had a wiggly tooth for a couple of weeks now. Last night while Emma was brushing her teeth, her tooth came out.
When I first heard about it, she was crying and in a panic. She said she got confused when it came out and let it go down the drain. Then, she remembered that the tooth fairy brought a surprise when you put a tooth under your pillow. She panicked that the tooth fairy wasn't going to come.
I started working damage control. I told her I would write a note for the tooth fairy that she could put under her pillow which would explain what happened to her tooth.
Joseph did something much more superhero and pulled the drain trap out from under the sink to rescue the tooth.
This morning, Emma had $5 for her tooth. She decided she wanted to spend it on Happy Meals for her and her brother and sister. Grandpa made up the tooth fairy's shortfall so she could do just that.
