She's all about her loose tooth!

Sarah is obsessed with losing a tooth.  Peter has lost one.  Her kindergarten BFF has lost two and Sarah thinks it's time she lost one too.  I think keeping up with your kindergarten BFF is probably more important than keeping up with your big brother.

For the last month or so she talks nonstop about loose teeth, wiggles her teeth, wonders when oh when will she have a lose tooth and constantly asks me to check for loose ones all to no avail.  They are all holding firm in her five-year-old gums.

Yesterday afternoon she was nibbling on a fun-sized bag of Skittles.  (And yes, you know you are thankfully at the end of all the Halloween candy when the kids are down to Nerds and Skittles and Dum Dums.  Where did all those Reese's Cups go?  Hmmmm....I wonder....)

And as she was nibbling on a Skittle she let out an "Ouch!" followed by "Mom!  I think my tooth is loose!"

So I wiggled it and I wasn't sure one way or the other so I said, "It just might be."

And then the phone calls began.  We had to call Grandma and we had to let Daddy know at work.

And then there was more wiggling.  And then there was lots of excitement and anticipation at the mere thought of letting the kindergarten BFF know at school the next day.

And then she wrote "Loose Tooth" on multiple Post-It notes and encircled her dinner plate.

When I asked her why she was doing that she stated very matter-of-factly, "Mom, I am all about my loose tooth!"

I guess the Tooth Fairy better stock up on ones just in case.

THAT is so cute!!! My oldest lost his first when he was in kindergarten but my other boy didn't lose his first one until he was close to 7... he was very bummed! My daughter, who is 4, hasn't concerned herself with it yet! yet.

That is the cutest thing EVER!

My nephew was the first kid in his class to lose a tooth, and he was so scared when it first happened! He didn't tell anyone about his lose tooth because he thought he'd get in trouble (he'd knocked out a tooth before while rough housing and got in trouble for that) so then when his tooth fell out he was crying because he was sure he was in BIG trouble.

I can't tell you how many times my husband and I have been out of $ones$ when the time came. Case in point: midnight, snowing.....had to run to 7-11 to buy a Coke Slurpee (I might as well get someting out of this) and get change OR start a bad precedent of giving out $20s for one tooth. I don't think so.
