The Tooth Fairy's debut

Thursday, February 28, 2013

How did we come to this moment?  The moment where my oldest daughter loses her first tooth....Is this for real?  She can't be old enough.  She can't. 

But she is.   

She's waited, for what seems like forever to her, for this moment.  She's one of the last in her class to lose a tooth.  And when you're 6, that's a pretty big deal. 

I on the other hand, shed a few tears.  Ok, so maybe.perhaps.I.quite.possibly fell to my knees and had a good old fashioned ugly cry.  Yes. The ugly cry.  It's my baby.  It's kind of like the first signal she's growing up on us. 

Ava's expression at hearing the big news. 

Meticulously placing her tooth on the fairy grass in the special tooth fairy pouch (ok, ok so maybe I forgot to order a tooth fairy pillow....I had to sass it up real quick).   

Her tooth fairy sprinkled dust all over her face. 

After school on Monday she made me hide in the garage while she wrote me a love letter.  Can I keep her this little forever??
