Kaylea loses her 1st Tooth ...finally.

~Kaylea thought the day would NEVER come. For the last year "EVERY one she knew" had lost a tooth...well except maybe Jett she said. Even 5 year olds were losing teeth & she was at the ripe age of 6 1/2. What could possibly be worse?!

~So she did everything she could to make a tooth loose; You know eat apples, carrots & other crunchy stuff, drink milk, brush & floss really good. Ok maybe Mom had a little influence on some of those.. but anyhow she tried them all. 

~Well one day last week before afternoon Kindergarten she begged me to pull it because it was practically hanging there & she didn't want to lose it on the playground. I knew we had to do it right then even though we would be running late for school. Tim stepped in & popped the thing right out...literally. It FLEW out and we were on our knees looking for it until my palm happened upon it as I crawled around. She was stoked but didn't expect so much blood!

~That night Kaylea put her tooth under her pillow and then came into my room to say: 
"Ok Mom, just in case you are the Tooth Fairy...Don't Forget okay!"

"I (want) to be a Dentist"

(Everything is about teeth these days, 
thus inspiring the career move.)

Tell her Wesley is 7, in first grade, and still hasn't lost one! (How are you gonna cover the tooth fairy part?)

She is really a great artist and looks so cute with a tooth missing! Are you super excited to have your baby boy soon? I can't wait for a new Campbell to arrive!

That's funny. How does she think you're the tooth fairy? Too funny. I guess she's too smart.
