Missing: Tooth

First Lost Tooth

If you’ve seen one lost tooth, you’ve seen a hundred. Until it’s your first one. Honestly? I wasn’t thinking too much about this, but it is Millie’s first lost tooth and to her, it’s a Very Big Deal. All night long she kept saying things like, “This will be my first dinner without that tooth!” and “This will be my first piece of candy without that tooth!”

It would be a shame for the Tooth Fairy Mama to forget to visit tonight, wouldn’t it? Because while it may be the 30th lost tooth I’ve had to deal with, for Millie, it’s #1.

And I need to treat it like it’s #1 for me too.
