Overflowing with Creativity 11/10

Some say the younger you loose a tooth the smarter you are and others say the older you are when you loose a teeth the older you will be when you stop growing!?!  Who knows…I like to think the latter is true!  (wink…my babies loose their teeth late).  Big B’s first tooth was lost within 4 hours of it beginning to wiggle.  He tugged and twisted and pulled it out totally dismissing the excruciating pain he was feeling (determination is a strength and a curse).  He was excited to be big stuff!  He went from one extreme to the total opposite with his next tooth…he has refused to wiggle it! 

Last night that baby tooth finally said ENOUGH!  In his sleep, Big B…swallowed it!  How that happened I have no idea, but he came to our room in the middle of the night to let us know.  I’m so glad he told us…not because we were worried (he’s eaten worse).  We were glad because the boy would have been mad if the tooth fairy was late on the job.  It’s funny how different kids are!  Little B had no trouble forgiving the tooth fairy…twice (oops)!  Here’s a cute idea for your wiggly tooth sweeties…spray a dollar bill with a bit of hair spray and then sprinkle with a bit of  glitter “fairy dust!”   Click here for more Tips Tips Tips.

    Oh so cute, that toothless smile..and he swallowed it, lol! What a terrific idea for the little tooth, as our five year old g’girl is going through this. Thank you for hosting this great party. Have a blessed Sunday.

    Thanks so much for hosting!
    I’ve had both of my girls lose their teeth in the middle of the night that same way. They both managed, somehow, to not swallow them…not sure how. The tooth fairy seems to be delinquent at our house quite a bit…boo!
    My race went great, thanks for your thoughts! Have a great night.

    Ok Aimee…. with six kids you can guess how many times we had to slip money under a pillow. I sooooooo would of done this for them, what a great idea to add a bit of special to the tooth fairy’s visit.

    Thanks for hosting, Aimee! I can’t believe you Big B lost his front tooth. He’s getting so…so…BIG! (sniff, sniff). I like the tooth fairy dust idea. I need to get my kiddos wiggling their teeth so I can try it out. Have a great weekend!

  37. I love a toothless grin! This tooth fairy has forgotten COUNTLESS times! Did you know that the tooth fairy is sometimes afraid that she will wake the children up, so she leaves it in the kitchen and she lets you keep the tooth?! Yes, I have resorted to that on more than one occasion! Thanks for hosting! Life to the full, Melissa
