Our five year old, Jessica, has had a loose tooth for some time now. Over the weekend it was driving her absolutely crazy. She was becoming quite grumpy and every couple of minutes she would let out a frustrated grunt.
When I picked her up at school today, she was so excited! She had finally lost that tooth. It happened during lunch. She was eating an orange and she thought it was a seed until she stuck her tongue on her tooth, but it was gone! Her music teacher gave her a little pink box to bring it home in.
After dinner, James took her to the store to pick out some ice cream to celebrate. She chose vanilla ice cream bars with chocolate coating, yummy.
A few months ago I bought a tooth fairy box. It’s a little wooden box with a lid. The inside is drilled out with a bit the size of quarters. She put the tooth in it and put it under her pillow. Now it’s just watch and wait. Will the tooth fairy come?
She came in last night
And vanished away…
With the tooth I pulled
If I could follow,
I bet I’d spy
A mountain of teeth that
Would reach the sky!
