Last Friday, Liv got in the car and handed me a strange necklace with a white locket of sorts on the end. "I lost a tooth at lunch mom! I lost a tooth!" She's been waiting for this day for about a year since her friends started losing their teeth. It's a right of passage, a sign your growing up, therefore a milestone I wanted to deny. She kept showing me her bottom tooth and telling me it was loose. But when she tried to wiggle it, I never saw it move so I thought it was her wishful thinking. Guess Mama was wrong! She said it came out at lunch time and she got the tooth necklace from the office to keep it safe in.
Can we please agree on something. Can we please become a unified front in letting our children know that HOW MUCH money the tooth fairy brings is something not to share with their friends. Thanks!
Luckily Liv doesn't grasp the concept of money very well still because when she told all her friends about her dollar bill all she heard was "Well I got $20!" and then "My fairy brought me $5!" She seemed unphased but I was a bit disturbed after doing the math of the parents giving away 20 bucks per tooth! And I know they have multiple children too! Maybe their fairy is making their child save up for their own braces one day...ha!
Anyway I find it amusing that my baby daughter is getting her baby teeth at the same time my older daughter is losing hers. This also makes me want to cry!
