Wobbly teeth are subject of much excitement around here. That is until the tooth becomes so loose that it interferes with eating…then it becomes subject of much whining and discontent. Thankfully that only lasts about 24 hours – at least for my child, who at that point wiggles and tugs so fanatically that it doesn’t stand a chance.
A few weeks ago, our big 6-year-old lost her third tooth.
Our ritual is that the tooth gets placed in our handmade tooth fairy pillow, which hangs at the side of the bed. This makes it much easier for the tooth fairy…ahem…to find the tooth and replace it with a special surprise. Because naturally it would be difficult for a 5-inch-tall, delicate little fairy to dig underneath a big fluffy pillow. Right?
In the morning, awaiting our girl, is a 5 kroner coin (about $1), a tiny note (stating how happy she is to have such a nice looking tooth and to keep up the good work brushing!) and of course…pixie dust.
