Yesterday my oldest pulled her first tooth. And I nearly cried. What kind of sappy mother am I, anyway?!
She’s quite proficient at surprising others, so when her Daddy walked in the door she ran to him and jumped in his arms just like nothing had ever happened. Witnessing her sheer delight when Daddy gasped at the void was a Finer Thing.
She checked under her pillow 17 times before going to bed, just to make sure the Tooth Fairy’s job would be easy. Her excitement was contagious.
Drifting out of cozy sleep this morning, I listened with a grin as my toothless early-bird rambled to her Daddy… “The Tooth Fairy came! She left a dollar, but I don’t know what kind. I’m bettin’ it is a $1 or a $7 because I saw a straight line. Maybe she changed the number when she sprinkled pixie dust on it. I better go check. She flew away, but I heard her, but I didn’t want to look because I didn’t want to scare her off!”
It’s a Finer Thing that she enjoyed stashing that $1 bill just as much as she would have a $20. I have a feeling the Keeper of the Teeth is going to have to redeem her reputation as my girl becomes more worldly. *Sigh* For now, I’m celebrating the magic of the first lost tooth and a visit from a pixie dust carrying Tooth Fairy.
