One down, 19 to go

Guess what happened to Maggie last night??

Give up? She lost her first tooth! Well, she didn't lose it, we know where it is. In a little glass jar to keep forever and ever.

At her last dentist appointment, Dr. C told me that her bottom front teeth were both loose and he expected them to be out within 2-3 weeks. That was Oct 13th. He's pretty good huh?

She cried a little while we were wiggling it & trying to get it out, but once it popped free, she was ecstatic! Really. Jumping up & down, cheering, showing Will her teeny-tiny little tooth.

After we carefully wrapped it up in a tissue and put it under her pillow, she went to sleep & I headed for the internet. I found a website that had free, customizable letters from the Tooth Fairy. I printed one out, taped a crisp $1 bill to the letter & swapped it out for the tooth.

She's growing up so fast. It's scary.

You know they come in in a certain order I guess they go out in an order as well. Interesting.

Did the tooth fairy visit? What's the tooth fairy's rate these days?

KNOT: She got a dollar.
We used to get quarters when we were kids. Joe almost ALMOST had me convinced that I needed to go to the ATM & give her 5 bucks. First tooth & all, make a big deal.
Nah, I think $1 is fine.
