We interrupt this regularly scheduled show...






for an important news bulletin!

A tooth has been taken from our home. It was last seen in its comfy, warm, safe place in Hannah's mouth. While it appeared slightly off-kilter and not at all happy in this slot, it seemed that it would be there for a lifetime.









Well, apparently, the little tooth was not happy and decided to jump ship yesterday in the morning. (with a lot of assistance from the hands and fingers of its owner).




and out it came.















Well, after much contemplation about whether the tooth fairy actually exists (according to Hannah, there are no such things as fairies, except for Tinkerbell and friends, lol), we talked her into putting it into the special Tooth Fairy pillow (that memere got her - it's shaped like a tooth, with gold lamé and a pocket for the tooth). She was sure that she would wake up and catch the tooth fairy.

but this morning, it was reported that the tooth was no longer in the pocket of the pillow (which was UNDER 2 other pillows on the bed, mind you), and in its place rested a folded dollar bill (what IS the going rate for teeth, anyway?). After a massive search (by Hannah, NOT me) it was decided that the tooth fairy did INDEED take the tooth and leave the dollar as payment.

****I don't have the heart to tell her I have the tooth - my husband thinks it's gross that I plan to keep it. I'm putting it in a keepsake envelope and scrapping it!****

Ah! It doesn't seem possible that they can be losing teeth already. When I went to Poland they had these really cute boxes for their teeth. I'm trying to decide if that's where he'll put the tooth when they start falling out or if that's where I'll store them! Oh decisions, decisions. I'm thinking I'll use it for him to put in. I bought two at the time and plan to get more when I go back...so I could pick up 2 more one for the boys to use and one for me to store! :)

My mom kept our teeth. I don't know if she still has them or not, I'm guessing not. I'll have to ask her!

Oh I meant to say that I have no clue what the going rate for a lost tooth is. I think we got a quarter, but well that was years ago! LOL

if you REALLY wanna gross Scott out, tell him I know a girl who kept the UMBILICAL CORDS from all of her babies. They are in her scrapbooks. Teeth=okay. Umbilical cords=creepy.

In our house, the kids rack up. It's $1 a crisp new dollar bill, a new book and a new toothbrush and toothpaste. It's a FEAST of sorts.

Oh, Linda - what great photos! MG lost her first tooth about a month ago, and the Tooth Fairy did indeed make it here. Her second tooth came out last week, and she lost it down the drain as she "cleaned" it. Thankfully, her big brother had a spare that the dentist pulled just two days earlier, and he was generous enough to let her have it. So, the tooth fairy visited yet again. By the way, I think you absolutely had no other choice. You HAD to keep that tooth so you could scrap it!

Linda...I swear...this is too cute.

Don't you worry about keeping that little tooth....

I have a little keepsake box in my nightstand and inside, there are about 20 teeth....from my girls. I just don't have the heart to throw them away.

Although, I must say, I don't keep the molars. Those damn things are UG...LY!

Sweet post!
