Lola had been bothered for about the last three weeks with a loose baby tooth. She had been wiggling and pulling and wiggling some more and just couldn’t get it to release. Finally after all the wiggling and a couple weeks’ time to allow it to loosen a bit more, she finally coaxed the tooth to come out last night. I tried to convince her about the Tooth Fairy, but she just laughed. I told her at least put the tooth in a sock under her pillow and maybe the Mama Tooth Fairy will give her a dollar in exchange for her tooth. She was ok with that, but upon finding the dollar in the sock the next morning she seemed worried about where the tooth had gone. I told her it was in a safe place and would never get thrown away. She was happy I valued her tooth as much as she did. After all, it’s the first tooth she has lost in America!!
