Lisa lost her first tooth today... she's 4.5!
I still can't believe it. I noticed a month ago that one of her front teeth had been messed up, it was all sideways, and I don't remember her falling or getting hurt or crying over tooth pain... Today I checked again and it seemed worse... I started to worry a bit about it, then this afternoon she just handed me the tooth saying it had fallen.
I didn't expect to freak out so much, lol. At first I was wondering what she did to her teeth, but I'm guessing her permanent tooth (which I can't see) pushed it. She's not in pain or anything, so I'm guessing it's the only reasonable explanation. I googled it and apparently it's not uncommon for kids to lose their first tooth at this age, but I still can't quite wrap my head around it. She's still my baby, lol.
We put it in a ziploc bag under her pillow and she asked how the faerie is going to get inside. Gotta love 4 year olds. I kinda wish hubby hadn't mentioned that teeth go under the pillow, but rather on the dresser instead. I'm just hoping he's not going to wake her up... what's the going rate anyway?
