Mind the Gap


Hannah has lost her first tooth. Monday night she was allowed to stay up after her brothers had gone to bed so she could continue wiggling her tooth loose. Erik then coaxed her into letting him pull it with pliers and out it came. The one next to it is also loose but she's in no hurry to lose it; maybe because we haven't told her about the tooth fairy yet. I don't think we were quite prepared this soon to have to make a decision regarding the tooth fairy. Hannah knows that Santa Claus isn't real but she also knows the story behind him; how did the tooth fairy come to be?

Congrats to Hannah!

We don't do the tooth fairy..... Guess I never really thought about it. In our house lost teeth are exciting because they signify how grown up you are getting, nothing else. :o)

I looked it up and found it on wikipidia. Interestingly enough it looks like its been around the globe. America seemed to tack on the fairy part in other countries it was a mouse,...me thinks I like a fairy sneaking in at night better than a rodent.
