E has had a loose tooth for awhile now. I was sure it had at least a week to go...and I was SURE that she would be a squeamish little thing about it and let it hang on by a thread until it just fell out.
Wrong on both accounts!! E came FLYing off the bus today with a toothless grin a mile wide. Said she pulled it out during her rest time.
She got right to work on a letter to the Tooth Fairy (a cute idea I stole from a fellow blogger!), and even included a cute "powem"! I wish I could get across on "paper" how she sang it to me in a little tune. The sweetest thing!!
Also included in this picture is another note she added later. After she had been in bed for about 20 minutes, E walked out of her room and came to me with a sad tear streaked face! The more she thought about it, the more she didn't want to give up that little tooth! So she took it out from under her pillow. Then worried that the Tooth Fairy would not come/would not see the tooth/would not leave her any treasure if she didn't give up the tooth...and on and on and...!! So she added the last note, then went back to bed.

Alas!! The magical fairy came, and left E a silver dollar! E knows these are very rare and was VERY excited to find this! The Tooth Tairy also left a wonderful letter for E.
What a fun surprise!
