I have declared Michael in charge of two things parenthood related. Make that three. So far he has failed at all three. Ha.
1. Pulling teeth
3. Teaching kids how to ride bikes.
Ella Kate had a loose tooth for maybe a month and a half prior to when she lost it. Michael and I would check in her mouth and Ella Kate would flip out. She got use to the idea of loosing a tooth and I guess became okay with it. One night we checked it and that thing was hanging on by a thread. She gave me a good night hug and I checked it one more time and that thing bent down at a 90 degree angle. Gross. I got up and got Michael a paper towel and told him to pull that thing out. He pulled and pulled but it wouldn’t come out. So we sent her to bed and I said, that thing is going to come out tomorrow at school, she is either going to eat it, or just straight up loose it.
I picked her up from school the next day, and I asked if she lost her tooth and she said yes. I said do you have it? She said no, I have no idea when I lost it or where it is. So she was worried that the tooth fairy wouldn’t come…so here is what we did:
Michael helped her pen a note to the tooth fairy and we put it in her new tooth fairy pillow that Mimi created for her. And low and behold:
Here she is the day she lost it, when she got in the car from school!
