"IT's WIGGLING!!!!!!!"

When: Friday, February 13, 2009 approximately 07:00 hours

What: Madigan discovered her first loose tooth

I am not exaggerating when I tell you that my darling daughter has been anxiously awaiting this moment in her young life. She is constantly asking me why none of her teeth have fallen out yet. She cries because everyone else in her class has lost at least two teeth and have awoken to a magical monetary surprise under their pillows. She is upset when the second grade boy on her bus tells her that because she has baby teeth, she is a baby. Well, things are about to change.

Every night, we check to see if that one little tooth is more wiggly than it was the day before. We are making progress but I think we still have at least another week to go. Madigan is wishing for it to fall out before we go on vacation. She is very concerned that the Tooth Fairy may never find her way down in Aruba. I remember getting silver dollars from the tooth fairy when I was young. I am guessing with the rate of inflation over the last 30 years, Madigan may be a richer girl than I!

She is so adorable!! Congrats on that tooth. How much are you going to pay? Sophie started losing teeth really early (four), before she understood money, so we did small toys. We've switched over to money now, but my husband and I disagree on the appropriate payment. I like the silver dollar idea.

We were just talking about the crazy phenomenon of losing teeth today. Your little girl is growing up - and still a beauty!

Hysterical. Our nieces and nephews were obsessed with this over Christmas all trying to pull teeth out for money!
