The Second Tooth





Nila lost her first tooth at a friends and Sarah missed it, tonight she lost her second when Sarah was at the YMCA and Sarah missed it. She is with the kids about 99.9% of the time and is 0 for 2 so far. Nila's second tooth fell out tonight when she was brushing her teeth and it was pure 5 year old joy. She told me that she got $1 for the first tooth and now will get $2 for the second one.

Kind of unrelated but the other day I was reading a blog about things parents did that kids remember and came across a post about how a mom use to tuck the kids in and write the address to dreamland in the air with her finger and send them off. I did it tonight after books with the kids and added a kiss as the stamp and the reaction was 100% joy.

Did she feel any pain when she lost her 2 teeth? My nephew had a wiggly tooth, and it was kinda painful. So his mom took him to the dentist and pulled it out for him. Now I'm wondering how my toothless nephew looks like.
