The tooth fairy

May 4, 2011

It finally happened. Last night, while brushing her teeth, my oldest daughter lost her first tooth. She had been wobbling it for weeks and weeks, her silver tooth fairy box ready on her nightstand, waiting for the much anticipated treasure. And then, it finally came out. The bad news? We lost the tooth. She either swallowed it or spit it out with the toothpaste… Gone forever. So sad! Learn this lesson, fellow mums: brush with care when your kids teeth are very wobbly!

Tonight, I’m finding myself sewing a little tooth pillow like the one pictured from Oeuf. I love the fact that there’s a little pocket with room for a banknote and a letter from the tooth fairy. And next time, let’s hope we will have a tooth to stick in it!

I can’t believe Sara lost a tooth! Our ‘babies’ are getting so big. It brings tears to my eyes! I’m so sorry you lost it! Bummer!
(Easton has a few wobbly teeth and he’s obsessed about it right now! It’s funny how they feel so proud about it.)

Oh man Sara must have been so disapointed! Coco is obsessed with losing her first tooth, though they are still firmly stuck in her mouth. It really is a sign of being grown up!

Hi Esther – maybe watching this episode of my girls’ favourite Charlie and Lola will make Sara feel better!

Hi Esther,

Slowly but surely I’m getting my life back and finally have the opportunity to read up on your lovely posts. But this post is just TOO SAD. I really feel for Sara! I trust you found a way to reduce the disappointment?
