Paging the Tooth Fairy...

Look what happened at school today!!



Kiddo reports that one of the aides pulled the dangling tooth out after lunch (I did give her apple slices, so she was eating crunchy, tooth-loosening things today) and that the nurse then wiped the blood away and gave her one of those tiny, plastic tooth treasure chests to save the tooth in - the same exact one that I used to get whenever I had a tooth pulled as a kid. (For the record: I had thirty-three teeth pulled, not counting my wisdom teeth. I mean baby and adult teeth that weren't left to fall out on their own. Somehow, wisdom teeth just don't seem to count in that regard...) Kiddo reports that it "didn't really hurt" - her exact words - and that she was happy to have it out.

So, paging the Tooth Fairy, we need you to make your debut appearance here tonight!

Funny that something as small as this



can move me to tears, but it did. My little kid is growing up so darn fast! *sniff sniff*

How much does the tooth fairy give for teeth these days? Or does she now leave a small gift instead of money?
