Okay, so Lila didn’t lose her two front teeth throwing ‘bows. Well, not really. Let Mari tell it, and an unfortunate jostling incident with her sister over a bowl of pasta just “helped” the first tooth fall out. The second tooth is somewhere on the soccer field, having been “helped” into the grass when it made an unfortunate connection with a fellow teammate’s forehead.


Anyway, I just got a kick out of the snaggle-tooth phase. Too cute.

Lila would like the tooth fairy to know that she prefers cash, but checks are fine, too. Just leave all monies by the door, please. You may be world renowned and all, but she doesn’t really dig strangers all up in her room in the middle of the night.

    Stupidly, our tooth fairy began leaving $5 for each tooth. Needless to say, the tooth fairy just about became broke once all those teeth started falling out!

    But, you're right – kids are so cute at this age!

  2. We are in a major tooth fairy phase around here as well. It is a cute look.

  3. Cutie Pie! Love the picture. Miles wasn't checking for the toothfairy to come into his room either. He thought it would be better to make the exchange on the table in the hallway. Right.

    I love that face! The tooth fairy is serious business around here, I've suspected a few teeth were pulled to aid toward a purchase…too much!
