A Dollar Just Isn't Worth What It Used To Be
Paige lost her first tooth two weeks ago.

One of Zach's friends was playing with her and it fell out during their rough housing. She was terrified, she didn't seem to realize you were suppose to lose your teeth, and Zach's poor friend was traumatized by the idea that he had knocked his friends little sisters tooth out. It really was a funny spectacle. Paige was crying that she was bleeding and she wanted her tooth back. You see, she swallowed it in all the excitement.

We explained to her about how you lose your teeth when you are little and why. I guess none of her friends had lost their teeth yet....or she just hadn't noticed.

Last night she lost her second tooth with much less drama. This time she was careful not to swallow it and Tyler took her upstairs to put it under her pillow for the tooth fairy.

This morning she came happily running down the stairs with her one dollar bill in her hands.

Look mom, my tooth turned into money. Now I can buy what ever I want.

I wonder how much she will cry when I tell her how much that dollar is really worth?

Maybe we can both have a good cry about that together....................

Oh my! This is too funny.
I think it's neat to watch the little ones realize that loosing teeth is a natural thing. At first they act like they've got a vital part of their body... lol

Poor baby. I knocked my older daughter's tooth out one day. Funny story.

Take her to the dollar store for some wonderful something. :)

Thanks ladies, she is very excited about her dollar. I think you are right, Brenda, a trip to the dollar store would be just perfect.
