For the past two and a half years Eden has been waiting for her turn to have a loose tooth.
We took this picture the night Maya lost her first tooth. Eden thought it was so exciting. For the past two 1/2 years she has been asking me to check her teeth regularly to see if she had a loose tooth. Well about a month ago she bit into an apple and started to cry because she thought she broke her tooth. When I told her that her tooth was actually just loose. She squealed with delight. For over a month now she has been waiting for the big day that it would actually come out. She would bring me string and ask me to get it out, because that is how we got Maya's out.
So Sunday night was the big night.
It took a few tries because mom wasn't as strong as she thought she was. I would flinch every time.
But I finally did it.
And here is my new toothless girl.
Big sister stood by and supported this time.
And thank goodness our tooth fairy understands that our country is in a recession and only gives out $1.00. Shame on those tooth fairies that give $10.00 per tooth. What are they trying to do? They may as well teach kids that money grows on trees. Before you know it those kids will be pulling out their own teeth so they can buy a Build A Bear. That would be way easier than actually earning the money.
