Happy St. Tooth Fairy Day!

It looks like I returned to blogging at just the right time.

No, not so I could show off our mad St. Patrick's Day celebrating skillz (and I hope that's read with all of the sarcasm intended, because it really was a last minute idea to get all festive... and what isn't festive about green mashed potatoes and sugar cookies? Yeah, mama went all out this year).

Nooo... Emma lost her THIRD tooth!

It was crazy loose yesterday and I was half afraid she might swallow it in her sleep. I kept trying to pull it, but she stopped me every time I had a good grip. At one point she said, "No, Mommy, you can't pull it out today. I prayed to God that I would lose it tomorrow." Um, okay. I didn't want to mess with that, so I laid off the twisting and pulling.

This morning she woke up with it still hanging and we worked it at breakfast. Again, I kept trying to get her to hold still long enough for me to yank it (because it was literally just hanging there), but she stopped me again and said, "No, Mommy, I prayed it would fall out all by itself." I explained that sometimes they need a little help and don't just fall out of your mouth, but then she reminded me that they do. So I eased up, and decided to let God answer her prayers. (Actually, I fully intended to pull it myself if it was still there after work.)

I had been at work for 30 minutes today when Gary called to tell me she'd lost it! When I asked what happened, he said he "spanked it out of her!" (I can almost hear the collective *gasp* as readers across the country read this.) According to Emma, she had disobeyed him and got a spanking for it, and just minutes later, she was cleaning her room, leaned over to pick up a stuffed animal and her tooth just fell out! First she said it landed ON the stuffed animal, but after careful thought, she corrected herself and said that "actually" it had landed NEXT to it. Okay. Thanks for clearing up that important detail, Ems.

Anyway, she's cute and toothless and will be $1 richer in the morning. Or maybe a Chuck E. Cheese token richer if I can't find my stash of fancy $1 coins.

It's almost midnight, folks, and she won't know the difference. Cut the tooth fairy some slack!


  1. Congratulations Emma!!!

    Those cookies look really good.....The green mashed taters, however..............:-)

    Glad you had a GREAT St. Patty's Day!

  2. I love that. Spanked it out of her. ha. Nothin' like a good old spankin' to cure everything. I was a recipient of many of those spankings in my day.

  3. The next time one of my kids has a tooth that will not come out, I'm calling Gary.

    (She looks so cute with that missing tooth. But also so big, you know?)

  4. I've been waiting for these pics! SO CUTE.
    I love the story around it. I'm glad she noticed when it fell out! Whew!

    She & Gray lost their 3rd teeth exactly a week apart. :) Clearly they're soulmates.

  5. St Tooth Fairy Day...so funny.

    Love your green mashed potatoes! You're a fun mom.

    The male tooth fairy at our house has been known to make late night ATM runs and then stop by 7/11 to buy something like a pack of gum so he'll get change to leave for our toothless wonders. The female tooth fairy would leave a CEC coin, I'm sure.

  6. Is it bad that I didn't let out a gasp, but rather a really loud laugh?

    And the green mashed potatoes... it's just so you. I love it!

  7. Hi! I'm running a "Toothy Kid Photo Contest."

    I hope you'll decide to enter. You might win a copy of my children's picture book!!

  8. Hello everyone! Who knows where to upload the film Avatar?
    I even bought the film Avatar for a SMS to http://rsskino.ru/kinofilm/avatar.html , the link was, but download fails, the system will boot quite strange cocoa something.
    Men, advise where to normal as quickly download film avatar?

  9. I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
    The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

    The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

    For the first 10 clients the price 15$

    To all clients free updating and support.
