A little tooth fairy fellow came to our house last week and left a buck-fifty for a teeny little tooth. Super-E couldn’t have been more thrilled with the idea of a little fairy guy roaming the house with his lost tooth. In fact, the next day, Super-E found (!!!) the tooth we hid in a box in my room and came up to me demanding to know why his tooth was in my box. A little dumb-founded, I quickly replied, in my most convincing voice that, “oh my gosh, the fairy must have lost it when he was exploring our home!” Yes, of course! Happy with this, he sat to ponder the wonderful adventure this fairy must have had in our home. About a half hour later, he decided that we definitely need a fairy door to make it easier for the fairies to come and go as they please. We simply deposited the tooth back in the pillow and the fairy came that night to retrieve his lost tooth. Phew! THAT was a close one!!! Next time we must be more careful!
I carved a rubber stamp for the little fairy guy and smiley tooth and stamped them directly onto the fabric with my versa magic inks. I want to make a “lost tooth” journal using the stamps so Super-E can document the when and how he lost each tooth. I wish I could remember how I lost mine. All I remember is how it felt to push around the loose tooth with my tongue and the empty whole it left when it was finally gone.
