Playing Tooth Fairy
My baby, my BABY, lost her first tooth last night at dinner. She was DE-LIGHTED. There was, in fact, some dancing about. I have no idea where she gets these urges to dance in celebration. Ben promptly dialed the Tooth Fairy to report the newly detached member. Then we packed Emily off to bed with a Tooth Fairy story and placed her tooth in a small purple velvet pouch under her "E" pillow. Last night the Tooth Fairy (ahem, Mom) did her diligent duty and replaced the shiny white tooth with two shiny silver quarters. This morning when I woke Em up she held my face in her hands and whispered delightedly, "Last night I saw the tooth fairy! She looks like a little mouse."
