A smile only a mother could love?

No.... Not quite. But it is definitely a smile that brings panic to the heart of the tooth fairy: "How will I possibly keep up with leaving money for this ONE child when there are so many others in the world losing teeth, too? Will my funds hold out if this kid keeps losing teeth at this rate?" I'm sure those are just a few of the thoughts running through the tooth fairy's mind. Oh... just kidding! I know the tooth fairy has plenty of money growing on her dollar tree. Nothing to worry about, right?

So GG lost her third tooth in the last 2 months. Here's a close-up so you can get the full effect.
See that big front tooth on the top (sticking out kind of at an angle)? You know... the first one that she should have lost on the top? It's a stubborn one! It's been loose, off and on, since before any of the three missing in this photo even wiggled for their first time. But it is still holding strong. It's not even close to falling out - just a little bit of a wiggle. I'm considering tying a string around it and yanking it out (while GG is asleep, of course, because she would never go for it if she were awake). Wouldn't it be perfect timing if she were missing all 4 of those teeth, right in time for Halloween? She wouldn't even need a costume. She'd be a real-life jack-o-lantern. (Maybe some orange face paint might add to the effect, I guess.)

OK, OK... I won't yank her tooth out. I know... how could she ever trust me again? But it's still funny to think about what she'd look like if that stubborn tooth would finally fall out like it was supposed to do already.


  1. Congrats to GG! How much does the Singapore Tooth Fairy leave anyway?
