Now I see I have missed Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and the most important- VALENTIME'S DAY-
It is so true time passes quickly as we get older!
Two nights ago Cupcake lost her first tooth. We were at Nana & Poppy's for dinner and my mother just gave her the cutest book with a little tine with a heart. About 2 minutes after we sat down for dinner, Cupcake calmly handed me her tooth.
What happened next, I wasn't quite prepared. She lost it! The site of a drop of blood and the site of herself in the mirror with a little (I mean tiny) gap in her lower jaw sent her through something I can't describe. She really thought she looked ugly. I was shocked. We were saying and doing all we could to make her feel beautiful but she was on LOCK DOWN- didn't hear a word we were saying. Just like she was a baby I videoed and played back for her and it calmed her immediately.
Later that night she made a plan. She wrote the toothfairy a letter (can you tell we have been reading Silverlicious) and asked the toothfairy to please not take her first tooth and her favorite candy is a rainbow lollipop. Since we explained to her the toothfairy has to take something to leave her a treat- she was very worried about her tooth being taken.
Being Superhero Dad, he left dinner early to start driving around to find a rainbow lollipop.
I waited until she finally fell asleep to snatch the note from the little tin which was in her little toothfairy pillow and put a shiney quarter and a rainbow lollipop in its place.
She must of woken up in the middle of the night. I heard her whisper- Mommy the toothfairy came.
I guess she left everything under her pillow and went back to sleep.
We woke in the morning, and she screeched she left my tooth and left me a beautiful rainbow lollipop. Her face was priceless. I think I held back the tears harder than ever before! She is such a big girl.
I will post a bunch of pics real soon- as soon as we return from her surprise trip this weekend!
