Vivian's New Smile

First Lost Tooth
Today my oldest twin, Vivian, lost her first tooth! It has been wiggly for awhile. She was brushing her teeth, prepping for bed, when it came out. There were a few tears from her. There were some from me but I chose to cry into a glass of pinot noir after she was asleep.
This is a big moment in a kid's life! Tomorrow she will go to class and show everyone her new space. My little babies are growing up.
I did not get to enjoy my older children's little accomplishments such as losing teeth. I was a single mom for awhile, always at work when it happened. My daycare provider would inform me of the tooth fall out and I would stop by the post office to pick up some gold Sacajawea coins on my way home from work. After some homework, dinner, bathing and tucking in, we would all go to "sleep". I would creep back in and slip the coins under their pillow. They would always be so proud of their gold coins!
Vivian wants to wait until her Daddy gets home tomorrow night before putting her tooth under her pillow. That way he can see it before the fairy takes it. I am finishing up her tooth pillow. I will post pictures when it is finished. Both Vivian and Devyn are very excited about this tooth fairy thing. This time around I can honestly say that I am, too!
