Oh! Tooth Fairy!

Bum. Bum. Dadadabumbum!

Did you ever see that movie called "Toothless" with Kirstie Alley? Seriously the best movie EVER! This woman dies and because she was kind of a putz in this life, she gets to be the Tooth Fairy. Can you imagine that? The Tooth Fairy! Awesome!

The theme song in this movie is by Huey Lewis and the News. Priceless. I highly recommend it for viewing pleasure.

As to the reason for this post....drum roll please....

....Miss Boo, yes my little girl, has lost her first...sob...tooth.

And I use the word LOST in the very sense of it being lost...from her mouth...and apparently from us, the tooth fairy and, well, you get it.

She came up to me sobbing her little heart out that she didn't have a tooth to put under her pillow. How was she ever going to get some money for the sheer effort of losing one of her precious baby teeth, which by the way, I have spent years telling her that if she didn't brush her teeth, they were going to fall out.

Oh, the therapy bills we are going to have some day for that little white lie.

I am sad that I will not be able to sing to her at Christmas time, "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" because fortunately/unfortunately I have an over achiever in the teeth growing department and her permanent tooth is already grown in.

Oh well, maybe the next tooth. OH WAIT! It is already coming out and the permanent tooth is right behind it almost full grown.

I had TOTALLY forgotten about that movie! Just thinking about it made me laugh.
Please congratulate Miss Boo on her tooth loss. :)

Does the tooth fairy come in our old age too just in time for dentures?

Congrats Rosie, way to be a dental overachiever.

Reminds me of when Michael lost his first tooth. He put it back in his mouth to keep it safe - and swallowed it. Ah well.

Rosey - How lucky is that? To get the new teeth without having to go through the whole front gap thing!
