The Tooth Fairy...has a hacking cough!

Guess who lost their tooth today in school? Not just any tooth either...her FIRST top tooth in the front.

Details are sketchy, something about at snack time and Joshua making her lose her tooth by making T kick herself in the face with her knee. Not sure how he managed that! Of course, a long lecture about "just say no" ensued upon my hearing this bit of nonsense.

The teacher sent the tooth home, taped to this cute "I Lost My Tooth" certificate.

Meanwhile, my hacking cough continues. Went to the doc, who actually gave me some antibiotics and other drugs to fight it off. She's a real miser with the meds, so I'm not sure what this says about my cough. In about 10 years seeing her and many, many coughs, this is the first time she's ever given me any. I usually have to scarf them from urgent care centers, who hand them out like candy.

So, that's that. Gotta to and practice my recurring role as the tooth fairy.

Glad you both survived the first lost tooth episode! I am not sure how I will handle it.
Hope you feel better and the meds work!

She is so freakin' cute! Baisler will be so jealous when he finds out - he has yet to lose one of his front teeth!

Hope you're getting better and better. I don't know why Dr's are so stingy with their free meds. That is the cutest picture of T. She will probably lose the other one soon and all she'll want for Xmas is her 2 front teeth. lol xox

Turns out I pretty much suck at the tooth fairy business. I had all intentions of laying down with her until she fell asleep, then doing the deed. Problem is, I fell asleep, too.

In the morning, I started to wake her up by saying that she's a big girl who lost another tooth...reminding me that I hadn't done the deed. Luckily, my girl is a bit slow to rise, and I was able to run for a dollar and put it under her pillow. I then frantically searched for the damn tooth, with no success. Then remembered it was still on the dining room table, and had to run again and snag it before T saw it there.

Oy, the stress!

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
