Do I lose them all at five?

She lost her first tooth when she turned five. She was so excited! I answered the phone and hear "grandma, grandma my tooth fell out." "Now I have to put it under my pillow tonight." When my first tooth came out I screamed. The neighbor's horses probably went into fight or flight mode! Calmly she explains "it is all fine not too much blood." "O.k. I have to get to bed so the Tooth Fairy can come." The next day I find out the Tooth Fairy has gone up with inflation and now gives a dollar per tooth. Within the next few months I heard just about the same story again and again. She isn't even six yet and all the front 8-10 teeth have came out and some have new ones coming in. I keep wondering why my children's teeth falling out weren't quite this exciting? Maybe because there were four of them or maybe, just maybe because they weren't grand children??

  1. How cute! My daughter is 5 and hasn't lost a tooth yet. I'm terrified for that moment, she's a huge drama queen and I'm sure it'll be traumatizing for her lol. Love your story!
