Here Comes the Tooth Fairy!
After church today, Amber lost one of her loose teeth. It didn't fall out; I pulled it out. Eric was out playing soccer and Autumn was taking a nap. Amber told me that her tooth was very loose and I checked it. I said that I could pull it out if she wanted. We are going to the church picnic later and I really didn't want the tooth falling out there and getting lost. So, I got a napkin and started to yank. Then I had second thoughts. I really didn't think I could do it. I knew it didn't hurt Amber because she was smiling away, but I still was hesitant to pull it out. I cringed and gave it a gentle tug and out it came. Amber was so excited. She didn't even care about the blood. I gave Amber a special porcelain tooth box that Eric and I bought for her years ago. Now she can't wait until tonight when she puts the tooth under her pillow.
