Guess what happened to Cosette last night!

Yep, she lost her first tooth! Actually, to be more precise, she pulled her first tooth all by herself! I was so proud of her! I NEVER would have been able to do that when I was five! She freaked out just a little bit with all the blood, but when Joel assured her that was normal, she quickly calmed down. She'd been wiggling it all day and really wanting it out. She showed it to her Daddy right before bed-time, and he said to go for it! She pulled it out without any problem. Now she's anxiously awaiting the rest of her teeth to be loose.....


Funny story to go along with all this: After she pulled her tooth, she declared that she wanted to put it in a bag to put under her pillow. (Our kids have always known the truth about the Tooth Fairy, Santa Clause, etc, but we had assured her that Mommy and Daddy would happily put some money under her pillow for her.) Anyway, as she handed the tooth to Joel, it simply slipped right out of his fingers and.....hit the kitchen floor.....somewhere! As Cosette called her Grandma's to tell them her fun news, Joel and I spent the next ten minutes on our hands and knees with a flashlight, searching for the 'lost' tooth! Suddenly, every single crumb on the floor looked like a little lost tooth! "I've got it!....No.....wait, that's just a piece of cheese." "There it is.....nope.....just a cookie crumb" We finally found it waaaaaay back under the stove. Cosette told her Grandma on the phone "I lost my tooth, and then Daddy lost it again!" We were all quite relieved to find that little lost tooth :)
