Toothless Tess #4!

I received a phone call at work from my daughter yesterday.  She excitedly informed me, "I just yanked on that wiggly tooth and it came right out!  And I was like, 'Wow! That's crazy!' "

We talked about how fun it was that she's lost her 4th tooth and that maybe the tooth fairy would come to her house again.  After some digging around, I happened to find a phone number for the tooth fairy so she could let her know about her tooth.

After work, I picked Em up from my parents' house.  She was SO excited to show me the empty hole in her mouth where her tooth jumped out of.  She went on to tell me how she got to talk to the tooth fairy and she had to be asleep when the tooth fairy came around because the tooth fairy gets very nervous around little children.  She tried to talk the tooth fairy into leaving a new toothbrush and $5!  It was pretty impressive... the tooth fairy even knew where she lived and that she had a birthday this weekend.  Em told me that talking to the tooth fairy was her most favorite part of her day!

The latest count... 4 bottom teeth have fallen out and she has 3 wiggly ones on the top so far.

In other dental news:  Em had her checkup at the dentist office last week.  I've never seen a person more excited to go to the dentist than she was that day.  She was jumping up and down and shouting "Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay!" when I showed up at Grandma and Grandpa's to pick her up that afternoon!  She handled the teeth cleaning and fluoride treatment like a pro.  She also surprised us by having (2) 6-year molars coming in!  So, on top of now losing 4 teeth and having 3 more on their way.  She's an over-achiever on getting her molars in!  No cavities and the dentist had absolutely no concerns with anything... other than trying to figure out how we're related since we have the same last names!
