Keeping the Tooth Fairy Busy

This girl.  Those top two teeth were loose F-O-R-E-V-E-R.  Big Sis would not let us near her mouth; no touching, no wiggling and especially no pulling!  They dangled until it affected her speech and the look of her smile.  We were sure that she would swallow one or both of them, like the bottom tooth she already lost.

After I tried (and failed) for a couple of nights to get my hands in her mouth while she slept, we awoke one morning to find Tooth 1 just laying on her pillow.  No mess, no blood and no pain.  She went on to school to show off to her class.

The very same evening, the kids were wrestling in the living room while I made dinner.  I was not at all surprised to hear a screech and see blood on the floor.  Boy Twin bumped her mouth and knocked out Tooth 2!  Big Sis was near hysterics, but I have to admit, I turned my head away and giggled.

Here are the before and after photos.  Let's just say the Tooth Fairy had to take out a loan that day.  And now, she has another loose one on bottom. It's going to be a fun summer trying to feed her corn on the cob!

How have your kids handled losing teeth? Excited or scared, like Big Sis?
