First Tooth on the First Day of First Grade

I don't know how I totally neglected to blog about such an important milestone... Grace lost her first tooth on her first day of first grade! It had actually been loose for quite some time- in fact, Jeremy was the one that "started" it. He was going crazy with his toy drum, and Grace approached him, wanting to have a turn. He didn't realize she was there and ended up hitting her in the mouth with a drumstick. It loosened immediately. We really thought the tooth would fall out soon afterwards, but it actually stayed loose in her mouth for almost a month! We were starting to get concerned because in that time, her grown up tooth poked through. Jason asked to see the tooth on that first day of school, and he said it was just dangling. He gave it a little tug and it came out easily! Unfortunately, with the excitement of the day, the tooth ended up getting misplaced (I know, that's pretty gross to think that her tooth could be somewhere in our house still). We had her write a letter to the tooth fairy explaining what happened. The tooth fairy was so nice to still visit and leave her a treat! Grace is now working on a second loose tooth! Hopefully, it won't take as long as it did her first one.
