This week has brought with it yet another loose tooth. It seems like they’re all falling out at once.
Only a couple of weeks ago while eating a chewy sweet in the shopping centre, one of Caitlin’s teeth became dislodged. She pulled the chewy bar from her mouth and said “Dad, what is this in my sweet?”. It had been loose for a while, and I guess she’d forgotten as she gnawed on her wham bar.
Of course, a lost tooth meant the tooth fairy would be visiting. It’s almost as exciting as Santa coming, isn’t it? Caitlin set about making lots of little gifts for her fairy, including some miniature clothes covered in glitter. She sealed them all up in to an envelope, along with her tooth. With a little crayon she marked on the envelope ‘Caitlin’s 3rd tooth’, and popped it under her pillow. The following morning, her hands shook with excitement as she ripped open the return envelop to find £2 inside.
The following week, one of Neil’s teeth which has been wobbly for weeks showed signs of being ready to come out. Desperate to catch up with his younger sister, he tried everything. First he tried a chewy bar, because that’s how Caitlin had lost hers and will now be forever immortalised as a mega tooth extractor. Or something like that. Of course, it didn’t work. So he tried apples, for breakfast lunch and dinner, which didn’t work either. Eventually it fell out, and £2 was well received.
This week has seen the loss of Caitlin’s fourth tooth. It’s funny, because she’s younger than her brother and her teeth were much slower to come in than his. She’s pleased that she’s winning the great tooth race. Their new smiles really are quite cute. There’s something very sweet about the toothless smile of a child. So sweet in fact, that I just had to share them for this week’s Sunday Photo.
I’m sure the tooth fairy is feeling the strain on her purse from our house over the last few weeks!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely week!
