Can you guess who it is? It's not a tinker bell, or barbie or anyone of the sort, and no I am not seeing things....most of the time.
I read a while back about the neatest idea to really get the magic and wonder of childhood going.
What is the first right of passage for a lil one? In my limited experience I would say it is the loss of your first tooth!
A few days ago I had a conversation with Alia as she was getting ready for school:
Alia: (in a funny lisp type tone) Mama I need you to pull this tooth out, it keeps flapping in my mouth.
(poor kid, it was laying flat)
Me: Uh, I don't think so, go to school and have Mr. Mark pull it for you (those things give me the heebe jeebes)
Alia (in her best annoyed teenage impression) UGH fine I'll just go do it myself
And so she did, she came out screaming happy shouts. "I am REALLY a big girl now!" She thinks she is grown, and she sure looks older to me!
Anyhow, the wonder on her sweet face the next morning was worth a MILLION dollars.
Instead of putting the tooth under the pillow, who thought of that anyhow, they are near impossible to find; you put it in a glass of water next to your bed.
Then when the tooth fairy comes, her dress turns the water its color. Your possibilities are endless! Alia's first tooth fair wore a purple dress, and then I added some glitter to the water, around the glass and a small trail leading to her pillow.
The pictures really don't do it justice, it was hard so late at night to get a good one
Under her pillow she got a GOLD (I'm rich mama) coin, a pack of trident, and some wisp tooth brush thingies
She saw all that with the trail of glitter and she couldn't stop talking about it. She had to call her grandma right away, and her papa, and anyone else who would listen about her magical fairy.
So I highly recommend using this fashion for the tooth fairy. The childhood innocence and wonder attached with it was truly amazing, made this mama smile from ear to ear!
Do you have any tooth fairy, or other such traditions that others may not? Please share away!
