This week my youngest Daughter finally lost her FIRST baby tooth. I say finally, as her tooth needed to come out for days (maybe even weeks~lol) and she has been too scared to let anyone touch it! After much coercing, she built up the courage to pull it out on her own. I would like to add, enticing her with money from the Tooth Fairy was probably my best persuasion tactic! ;)
That same night we performed a ritual we had done many times. We placed her tooth in the special Tooth Fairy pillow & recited the Tooth Fairy poem. The pillow was a gift for my oldest Daughter & has always been very special to her. I know it was difficult, but in honor of this momentous occasion, she passed the pillow down to her Sister. She also taught her the Tooth Fairy poem & helped her when she stumbled on the words.
