It Just Fell Out

Today is a special day. Kate lost her first tooth! I had no clue that it was even loose. Neither did she apparently. She came running down the stairs in complete shock, and crying like her left arm had been cut off. Poor little thing, it scared her to death. I asked her what happened and she said, "It just fell out on Halle's leg." Halle had been painting Kate's toenails when Kate all of a sudden just grabbed her mouth and ran. When Halle looked down, there was a tooth sitting on her leg. So funny!

After we all (my mom and sister just happened to be here to witness the drama) oohed and ahhed and talked about what a grown up, big girl Kate was she, slowly decided that it might be okay. I'm still not so sure its okay. This means my baby of babies is growing up and that's just not okay!

When bedtime came around, Kate was SO excited for the tooth fairy to come. She semi-believes (has too many older siblings to fully believe) and told me, "If you see the tooth fairy flying around, make sure you tell her my room is right here."

I'm happy to report the tooth fairy did her job and Kate now has money burning a hole in her pocket. She's ready to go buy a pack of gum....her favorite thing.

We were literally just talking last night about the fact thay Kayson is starting 2nd grade in a month and hasn't lost a tooth yet, and then Kate goes and shows him up by losing one before kindergarten. I think he will be a littl jealous:)

CUTE!!!! I am so glad the tooth fairy hasn't raised it's rate of inflation in your house either. Our kiddos get one dollar too, although I have family and friends that give $20 bills, a scooter, a bike, etc.
