The Day We Have Been Anticipating For Weeks


Has finally arrived! Tonight is a night that changes me from a mom of small little children, to a mom with kids old enough to have lost teeth! I hope our tooth fairy is much less retarded than Renae's kids' tooth fairy. Although I already know that the tooth fairy for this area wanted to leave gold dollar coins for her toothless children, but forgot to go to the bank...even though she had something like three weeks to make the trip. So I don't hold out much hope for her.

Tooth fairies are notorious for not planning ahead. Sometimes I had to wait 2-3 days for the tooth fairy to put money under my pillow. Fickle far flung fairies fly furiously for fun fun fun.

Mary, really, you need to feel lucky. I lost my first 4 front teeth the hard way with a face plant in the bathtub while my mom was 5 feet away when I was 3 years old. Thank God I don't remember it. But I'm sure it's why I was terrified of water till I learned to swim at 10yrs old in retrospect. Look I managed 2 periods that time!

You know what? I use that story to make my children sit in the tub when they get antsy! :) I know all your stories! When we were teenagers my sister would bore me to death with all the thrilling little details of your life! ;P (Okay, probably not ALL of them, but definitely more than I cared about at the time!) Really, it makes me shudder to think of that happening! Icky!

Some of the other negligent mothers who read my blog have within the last couple of months had their kids' teeth knocked back up into their mouths, but fortunately the teeth came back in, instead of falling out.

Well, if you were less negligent, it wouldn't. ;)
