I've got two growing teeth and one losing them. Yup, Amelle lost her first tooth last week.
When Amelle turned five one of the first things she did was inform me that she was not going to lose teeth until she was six. She knew that Avery began losing his teeth at five and that there was blood involved. The $1 bounty from the tooth fairy wasn't enough enticement for her to want to lose teeth early.
So when she announced early last week that she had a loose tooth, Jermaine and I were shocked and afraid. We figured that Amelle would try to superglue it back in so that she could hang onto it a bit longer. Nope! She and I were walking along the aisle of Target and she excitedly announced that she lost her tooth! She was so excited!
