    Economy Of Mythical Proporthons

    My baby lost her first tooth. She's 5. An early bloomer, just like her mom. She had a full set of teeth at 5 months, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised by this, but I thought I had at least another year before she started losing the pearly calcifications.

    The Tooth Fairy dropped off $5 in $1 bills. Chalk that one up to the economic crisis. I think the government should offer all mythical creatures a bit of that bailout money, don't you? I mean, I've seen Santa panhandling on the street corner for weeks now. I guess he's out of a job too. Let's hope Obama can help him out, huh?



    And here is our toothless wonder. She is quite excited to use that new found hole by squeezing a straw in the gap, and using it as a "holder". Honestly, it was the cutest little tooth. So tiny. And such a metaphor for what is to come. I know soon we'll be looking into braces, and acne wash, and lip gloss. Too soon. Too, too soon.

    Yay for Maggie. My kids lost teeth early. Well, Mikaela did anyway. And, Jill, yes we are talking proactive purchasing soon too. It's starting. I feel badly for them. Acne sucks!

    I love your blogs! You know exactly how to put life into words. BTW-you know your kids are getting old when they ask if you'll just give them the cash instead of going through the whole "leave it under the pillow" thing (Alex did that just tonight).

    I can't believe she is already losing teeth. Good job Mags. Did she pull it out herself?
