The Tooth Fairy's Coming!

We were at the store today, and the kids grabbed some sandwiches that they were giving away as samples. Andi took a few bites of hers, and she said "Hey, my tooth came out!" Yep, it sure did. She's had two loose teeth for a couple of months, and one of them finally came out.

Here's Andi with her moneymaker. I asked her how much the tooth fairy will give her and she said "A penny!" We got off easy.

You can't really see it here, but it was one of her bottom middle teeth. One of her silver teeth is loose too. When those teeth fall out, the tooth fairy should give me a check to cover the cost of the dental work. I'll have to run that by her if I see her tonight.

This is our first tooth fairy visit. Since we have a ton of children, we'll have a ton of them through the next several years. It makes me feel kind of old having a kid old enough to have teeth coming out. That's ok, because I am pretty old.

I wonder why loosing teeth is so sporradic. You'd think that the adult teeth would all be coming in at the same rate and hence all teeth would be replaced about the same time. Naomi is 6 years old and hasn't lost a single tooth, yet her cousin born on the same day has already lost several teeth and has adult teeth fully in place. What's up with that?

I wish I knew. I freaked out when her teeth started getting loose, because she wasn't even 5 yet. I guess it's just one of those things.
