a sweet tooth (or two)

The Kidling has several loose teeth that have been hanging on for far longer than this first-time mama would have ever expected. So this afternoon, we did a little tooth check, assessing incisors and canines for any indication that they might be ready to call it quits (they are probably tired of listening to all of the yammering). We poked and wiggled, checking each of the potential candidates for dental defection. Content with our assessing of which tooth was most likely to fall out first, The Kidling said with relief, “I’m glad my sweet tooth isn’t loose!”

Somehow, I think she has a few extras.

    • So did I! The Kidling is quite fond of our tooth fairy: Ruth, we call her. She is the fairy responsible for Our Town. Alas, I don’t have the heart to take matters into my own hands. If The Kidling wants a visit from Ruth the Tooth Fairy, then she needs to do one of two things: 1) be patient, or 2) yank that sucker out herself. She currently has four loose teeth, so I think you can guess where her inclinations lie.

  1. How sweet are children 🙂
    When my son was much younger he was so fearful of the tooth-fairy, we had to leave his pillow with tooth beneath it on the kitchen counter. Just the thought of a little fairy flying around his room was enough to invoke night terrors 😉
    you have a great blog here!

    • Oh, poor boy! I am so glad the Tooth Fairy was kind enough to leave her payment downstairs. What a kind fairy. And thanks for your kind words! Enjoy my wee blog.
