The Tooth Fairy!
At 5 years and exactly 10 months old, my baby girl lost her first tooth yesterday. It was sooo wiggly for days and then finally came out in a bit of pancake.
A bit bittersweet for mama, but Rio was thrilled and the tooth fairy did not disappoint. She left some special-first-tooth, sparkly loot along with a poem*:
Way to go, you lost your first tooth!
It's a special one and that's the truth
To honour the occasion, I left a few things
(A little bit more than what I usually bring)
A toothbrush to keep your teeth clean
So they'll still be healthy when you're one-hundred-and-fifteen!
A shiny new coin, to buy something new
And last but not least, something tasty to chew
Great job Rio, you are really sweet
Think about this until next time we meet...
You might spit when you talk or whistle when you sing
But losing a tooth is a wonderful thing!
ps: Any more wigglies?
Three more teeth are loose! Tooth Fairy's going to be busy!
*And if you're wondering, that bit of poetic magic was a tooth fairy original. Oh yes, she's got some talent.
