Officially a big girl

Well, it is official. Kiersten is a big girl..... she lost her 1st tooth yesterday. She had to have some help, mind you. When we went to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned last week they suggested putting some baby ambesol on her gums before 'wiggling' it out. That worked like a charm. I had to get Kiersten's attention to show her I had pulled the tooth. Her other tooth is already so far up it doesn't even look like she lost a tooth! (It is her bottom left tooth- you can see the bumpy top of the new tooth.)
We had been talking about the tooth fairy and when she went to bed she reminded me we needed to put the tooth under her pillow. A few minutes later I hear her crying up in her bed, so I go to investigate what the problem is. Turns out she doesn't want the tooth fairy to take her tooth! :) I did my best not to laugh - the things that distress when we are little! So, we ended up taking the tooth out from underneath her pillow. I let her know if it wasn't under the pillow the tooth fairy would not be taking it. I also told her that no tooth means no money. I think she wanted to show it to Daddy. He was away at a business dinner last night and didn't return until after she was asleep. We'll have to see how this one plays out. ( She did ask me this morning if the tooth fairy was real or not and I had to say I don't know. I couldn't lie!!! Why do they ask these questions?!)

Congrats Kiersten! Aidan is big into asking if things are real. I am dreading him asking if Santa is real!
