Well...let me start by saying Haven has had 4 loose teeth for about a month now. She lost her first one eating corn on the cob but now that she can't have corn we haven't been able to find anything to eat to lose them.
So my mom made me this wonderful homemade chicken soup for my wonderful flu. Miss Haven decided she wanted some soup - after 3 bites she stops and stares at me and then takes off running to her room screaming "I have to check my tooth". Kris and I kinda looked at each other - Haven often goes to her room to check herself out. Then we hear screaming from the bedroom "Where is it?" over and over. We ran back there and she'd lost her tooth. I scoured the living room floor and even drained and sifted through her soup. Our guess is that she ate the tooth!
Well the tooth fairy never came because Haven didn't leave her a note. So tonight Lauren was visiting and talking about when she tied a string to a door and her dad pulled her tooth out. Haven came up with an idea - let's tie one of her teeth to dad's RC car and yank it out! So Lauren's visit got very exciting!
I tied up her bottom tooth with some string.
We attached it to the car. Haven wanted to go slow but I gave Kris the "you better do it quick" look and bam.......
the tooth was out! The above photo was printed for the tooth fairy with a note explaining that she'd actually lost two teeth and should get two gifts...but that the first one was in her belly.
It took me about 45 minutes but I found the tooth about 20 feet away outside on the deck! It is now packed up in her velvet tooth bag next to her head with the photo and note for the tooth fairy!
Haven was super excited to see Lauren tonight. She hasn't seen her since her birthday in January. But a big surprise to Haven is that dad is going to have Lauren come over this summer a few days a week to spend some time with Haven while she is out of school and before Lauren moves to Hawaii in August.
Ok...well everyone needs to get to bed so the fairy can come! :) Love to all......my baby girl is awesome!
