Let the Bucks Begin Rollin' In!

Sunday night Sophia [aka 'the six year old'] was terrified - really, freaked out - to go to sleep. She was afraid she'd choke on her very loose tooth. Her very first one. I had to assure her that she would not. Whether that's true or not, I have no idea. But I just needed her to get a good night's sleep! And I needed one as well! I figured that her body would wake her up if it happened to come out during her sleep.

The next morning - - - Sophia is brushing her teeth, against her better judgment, and then I hear some scream-crying coming from her. She's on her way downstairs into the schoolroom saying: Mommy, my tooth came out!
She was a little nervous at first. Then after all the drama...she put it in a ziploc baggie and put it under her pillow. Then she was extremely thrilled!Even more so when she awoke the next morning to find a $1 bill under her pillow. There were some rumors started by the neighbor girl that the tooth fairy gives $10 for a first tooth - but we quelled those rumors immediately :o)
Of course, as is the nature with baby teeth, her other tooth is loose and ready to come out any day now. Gosh - makes me wonder how it is in homes with multiples [ie. twins, triplets, etc...]!

Yeah!! Great story! Tell Sophia congratulations!
I think she should get $10 though

God Bless-Have a great day!
