Happy day in the Poppins Household!!!
We've lost our first tooth! That's right, the first Poppins Family baby tooth has finally been wiggled and giggled and, in the end, flossed out. Altogether a very exciting moment.
All was going well. My son even made his very own Lego Tooth Holder to put under his pillow.
The tooth was placed safely into it's holder and set in a safe place until it was bed time. Sadly bedtime came and went and the tooth never made it under the pillow. It's all good, it made it to the pillow first thing in the morning.
Now the thing about putting a tooth into a Lego holder in the morning is that it is impossible not end up playing with that Lego holder during the day. So when bedtime came the Lego Tooth Holder had gone missing. Oh no!
Luckily, the Lego Tooth Holder was found, but the tooth had gone missing.
Luckily Mommy Poppins knew what to do ... Improvise!
First we ransacked the room looking for the tooth. No luck.
Then I had an idea.
"It's ok," I consoled him. "The Tooth Fairy will know the tooth was under the pillow because she can smell teeth."
"Oh!" he said excited. "I didn't know that."
"Well the Tooth Fairy is pretty awesome!" I said.
Just like that! The lovely innocence and naivety of children comes in handy at moments like this!
So I said, "All you need to do is write the Tooth Fairy a note so she knows you lost it."
We grabbed a crayon and some paper and....
The best part was in the morning he was so excited to see the Tooth Fairy had taken the note that he didn't even notice she left him money!
That's my boy!!!
