So we were out to dinner with some friends last night and it happened. I knew it was coming…I wasn’t sure I was ready for it…but…ready or not…she lost it. And judging by the size of the gap the poor girl will probably have teeth as big as mine!
PS. So at 1:50am last night my home phone rings and I wake out of a sound sleep to get it. I hate phonecalls like that. (They’re usually not good news…) So my heart is pounding and its my Mom on the other end. She’s all frantic asking, “What’s going on? Are you having the baby?”
And I’m so confused. “What?! No. I’m sleeping.”
So she says, “I just got a text from you- a picture text and I can’t open it!”
Apparently the picture I sent at dinner to announce the missing tooth went through in the middle of the night waking her up making her think I was in labor. I was wide awake for the next hour. (Thanks Mom and At&t) But the GOOD News is- suddenly I was able to remind the tooth fairy about the need for a visit. Had she/he forgotten- let’s just say it would have been a sad morning!
PPS. And in case you didn’t know- when your kids are in school- you discover that some kids get a hefty chunk of cash from the tooth fairy- and some don’t. And so we learned something really important- and you parents may or may not know this very important fact: See the “Tooth Fairy” only gets a certain amount of money each night. So depending on how many kids lose teeth that day- she may or may not have the same amount to give. So if your kid ever wonders why they didn’t get a $50 spot like Johnny…you can let them know that maybe a lot of kids lost their teeth last night…
