Ugh, so Addison has her first loose tooth...and she is totally being drama about it! We discovered it last night and she is completely freaking out about it. I really wish I would have had conversations with her about it before now. I just thought that didn't start until around 6-7 years old!

So I guess the tooth fairy will be visiting soon!

What is everyone doing for the tooth fairy? Coins? Bills? DH has been saving a $2 bill for her first Tooth Fairy visit. I'm not one to go overboard on this stuff but I'm thinking this first one is at least worthy of a note from the Tooth Fairy. Thank god for Google!

No lost teeth here. But Lily is very interested in it. She has heard all kinds of stories about it. She keeps asking my how much money she gets. I said the tooth fairy brings all kinds of things - that she will make the decision. She is really excited about the "fairy." It is really just a stall tactic on my part because I don't know what i will do yet.

What did you decide on?

I found a cute "First Tooth Certificate" on a random website. It's $5 to download so you can print yourself, but whatever...it's way better than anything I could have come up with. I think we'll give her that along with the $2 bill DH has been saving. Although she is more fascinated by coins...maybe I'll get her a Sacajawea golden dollar instead.

She has calmed down about it. I don't remember how long teeth are usually loose for before they fall out, but this one seems like it's going to take a while.
