Today's creative endeavor ;-)

This morning Farmer, Jr. and Daddy went for haircuts.  Then they went to the local Taqueria place and had breakfast.  Hubby calls home just as Lil'Gal experiencing an indecisive moment regarding just what she should have for breakfast...  Hmmm, decisions.

Daddy asks if we want tacos?  Of course.  A typical Saturday....but then.....

Lil'Gal is enjoying her taco when suddenly she becomes alarmed.

"Mama!  Mama?  Something is wrong?"  She finds me in the bathroom drying my hair.

"What? Lil'Gal?"  "Mama, something is wrong with my tooth on the bottom.  And, it hurts when I bite my taco..."  She seemed profoundly alarmed.  Drama...LOL!

Me thinking and suddenly happily excited to share what I believe is going to be the greatest of news, "Let me seeeee...could it be your tooth is loose?"  Her face looks concerned, contemplative, expectantly surprised yet I could tell she didn't want to get her hopes up.

See she is the last one out of everyone near her age to have NOT lost a tooth.  Brother has lost a mouthful at this point, her cousins -- all lost teeth, many teeth.  Even my niece who is only 7 weeks her elder, has lost a mouthful.  Lil'Gal was beginning to give up on her day of raking in some money...

I keep telling her that when she FINALLY DOES lose a tooth, they will start falling out like bowling pins and the tooth fairy will make her rich -- so not to worry, and to be patient.

Sure enough?  Loose tooth.  "Sweetie, you haaaave a looooooose toooooooth!"  I'm grinning because I know her face is about to turn into the happiest, heavenly smile.  Sure enough, the joy shoots straight through her!

"MAMA!!!  You have to make ME a tooth fairy pillow now!  I could lose it tonight!"

Of course, I agree and that became the project of the day.  Designing, choosing colors and making her very own tooth fairy pillow.  Her name in embroidered into the pink pocket across the bottom of the hot-pink tooth pillow.  Super cute, right?

And, here is the super happy "I'm a big kid" Lil'Gal.  She will be sleeping with this pillow every night until the tooth, and the tooth fairy, finally come. ;-)  For her?  This is so big...and, so waited for.

Mommyhood ROCKS!  It's the simple things....

Happy Saturday! FW's way!

Gee, when that happened to us, my Mom would just grab the pliers. :-)

LOL! She actually asked me this afternoon if I could tie a string to her tooth and do the door thing.

I told her, "Honey, it ain't that ready yet..."

Too cute! The excitement!

And before you know it . . . you'll be having consults with the local orthodontists! LOL!

I miss my kids' perfect baby teeth. Or maybe it's just that I'm not looking forward to the years' of teeth-related payments that are awaiting us.

Still, GREAT NEWS for Lil Gal. A loose tooth and a visit from the tooth fairy is definitely something to be happy about. :-)

My kids are told to grab a snack-sized ziploc baggie to put their tooth into... and since the 10yo sleeps on the top bunk, he leaves it on top of his gecko's cage so the tooth fairy has easy access, LOL! (It's hard to fool the 4th kid, but he still plays along anyway.)
