Toothless Thursday

Toothless Thursday

My oldest girl lost her first TOP tooth last night. A total of three have been handed over to the tooth fairy in exchange for some special coins and a budding appearance of growing up. She certainly looks like a big girl to me! And she looks beautiful … Even with a huge gap in her mouth and bottom teeth that are growing in unevenly, she glows with happiness that such a big-girl thing is happening to her. She is so proud of herself, and well, so am I!

Isn’t she sweet in her Catholic school uniform?
This tooth-fairy pillow was made by my dear aunt, who made one of these for me when I was little. I saved it all these years to hand down to my daughters, and then when the time came to pass it on, I couldn’t find it! I was beside myself! It was so cute … It was pink with a pocket made out of the fabric of a dress she had made for me. Well, when I told her that I couldn’t find it, she simply said, “Don’t feel bad about not remembering where you placed it! I don’t even remember making it for you!” So, she whipped up another one and shipped it to us in less than a week! Now, if only those sewing skills would rub off on me …

  1. how sweet-your daughter AND the pillow…..and if you want to practice sewing, pillows are a great place to start. i am a champion “pillow maker”. now clothes and things, that is another story!

  2. She’s a doll!! With teeth or not!! I agree…She is sweet looking in her Catholic school uniform, too.

    I remember when my oldest lost her top front teeth….she lost BOTH top front teeth at the same time! Talk about a drastic change.

    2 of my 6 year olds currently have loose top front teeth. Any of my kids losing their baby teeth has always been hard for me…their baby teeth are so PERFECT and STRAIGHT, and I don’t know WHAT is going to come in! lol. (And I’m not sure I want them to grow up anyway. Ok…I don’t lol. ) But….nice teeth have come in so far. Of course, they see nothing but excitement from me, every time. : )
    I hope you still find your own tooth pillow, at some point. Just maybe, you will. That would be nice.
