Maia lost her first tooth last weekend! She was very excited about her wiggly tooth and kept talking about the tooth fairy—sharing all the interesting facts that she knew about tooth fairies (and surely learned from the other 6 year olds at school). And, of course, she knew the whole routine about putting the tooth under your pillow.
But she lost her tooth in the middle of the night! It was simply missing when she woke up. We searched her bed and bedroom and finally decided that she must have swallowed it during the night.
Maia was very concerned that she didn't have her tooth to put under her pillow so she wrote the tooth fairy a note to explain what happened. Luckily the tooth fairy was understanding. Maia was so thrilled with her dollar coin (she thought it was gold) that she put together a gift for the tooth fairy with half the coins from her piggy bank and and a few more written notes! Lucky tooth fairy.
And now Maia has a new smile!
I'm curious. What does the tooth fairy leave for the kiddos in your house?
