After months of waiting….
… it happened! Natalie lost her first tooth!
When: Wed, May 25th at approximate 12:45pm
Where: At preschool, just entering the classroom
How: Just a little extra wiggle with her finger
First to find out: Ms. Bree
The Big Question (at dinner)….
Natalie: Mom, is the tooth fairy real? Or pretend? Real or pretend?
Me: What do you think?
Natalie: It could be real. But it could be a fairy tale. Kinda like the Easter bunny doesn’t really hide eggs. Its just you and Dad.
Me: So, what do you think.
Natalie: Mom, is the tooth fairy real or is it you?
Me: (quietly so Elliott wouldn’t hear) It’s me
Natalie: I thought so!
Me: But its still a fun thing to play, so let’s just play along.
Me: And don’t tell other kids b/c they might believe its really but we don’t want to ruin the surprise for them.
Natalie: Why did you tell me?
Me: Well I just thought it was more important to tell the truth and then we can still just play along.
Me: So, if we cannot find your special tooth holder that we got in NY, do you want to borrow your bro’s? I know where his is.
Natalie: Its just for pretend so we don’t need to do that.
Me: (heart sinks) But… you want a surprise under your pillow, right?
Natalie: Oh yeah, right. Let’s use bro’s!
