Our sweet little girl lost not just one but TWO teeth! This was the week where Jonathan graduated to another class at school and Bella started school. So this event through me into denial and tears on how fast they are growing up. Don't get me wrong, I love watching them coming into their own little personalities and watching them grow up. But sometimes I just want to make time stand still and my momma's heart can only handle so much.
Nonetheless, you can't stop time so I'm learning to just embrace each moment! Our Bella had a lose tooth that she was working on getting out. And with Daddy's help, it came out! Then the next week, Daddy helped the other one come out. Now our 5 year old lost her front two teeth and looks adorable when she smiles.
A sweet friend at church gave Bella a tooth fairy book for her to read and contains a pouch to put the tooth in. You'll notice the turtle in one of the pictures below. That was Mike's tooth fairy pillow his Nanny made him. We've had this for a while and it was such a joy to use it with our own children. The best part of this experience was getting to sneak in her room and give her money! That little gal was so excited about 4 quarters. (By the way, the tooth fairy is expensive in some families. Some of her friends get $5-20 per tooth! Say what? Oh no, we do a $1). Ahem, I digress. Anywho, that sweet little gal woke full of excitement and put her money in her bank.
Here's to growing up and not being able to eat apples anymore!
