The Tooth Fairy Came Back!!

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I blogged about Ann Catherine losing her first tooth? Haven't had that much excitement at the George household since Chris came foot first through Lily Baker's closet (but that's a post for another time)!

Last night, another tooth started wiggling.

I'll let you in on a little secret about myself. I have been pooped on, peed on, spit up on and thrown up on by my kids. And I am fine with that. Didn't miss a beat.

But, I CANNOT pull a tooth!

Can't do it. I don't know what it is, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Just the thought of yanking that tooth out gives me the willies.

Luckily, I married a hockey player.

He grabbed a kleenex and started pulling. AC began to cry and came running to find her lamby. I told her just to wait and let it come out on its own. But she wanted that sucker out so she went running back. This time Chris pulled and out it came!

When the tooth fairy took her first tooth, she was a little bummed. I had shown her a little container for her first tooth that someone gave her when she was a baby and she really wanted to put it in there. So Chris and I told her that the tooth fairy always brings back your first tooth, but you never know when it's going to happen.

It happened last night! She brought AC a card with her first tooth inside - and a dollar for losing her second tooth!

Does it get any better for a five-year-old??!

Now she's really a Snaggletooth with that big gap in the middle. And she could not be happier!

I can't bear to pull a tooth either! I don't even like to watch them wiggle them.

Vaelyn has lost FIVE now. In fact, she lost the bottom two (after the permanent teeth were already coming in BEHIND them), and then another bottom one BEFORE Jayden lost the same one! Now she has finally lost the second top one. The top two kept scooting and scooting so much that it looked like she was missing a tooth when she wasn't! By the time the second top tooth fell out, the first one was half-way in! :'( It doesn't look very gummy! :'( She's been saying "Merry Christmas" because Jayden lost his top two around Christmas time, and I made him say it. He said it perfectly without the teeth. She says it more like I expected. It's soooo cute! :)

Remember. . . to give you perspective on how early she's losing her teeth, I believe she's only a week and a day older than Ann Catherine!!

Miss you, girl!
