I am sooooo delayed in posting this but I didn't want to forget to get this pic up, even if it is a month old!
Jefferson was so excited to lose his first tooth (end of May, for heavens sake)!
But me, being the super-duper prepared mom that I am (uh, not...) almost forgot to put something under his pillow. I had wanted to give him a dollar coin since they aren't common and he loves them. I meant to go out in the evening to get it. However, I shot straight up in my bed at 6am the next day, somehow subconsciously realizing that I hadn't done ANYTHING! What a bad Mommy!
I raised around the house trying like a crazy woman (oh wait - I AM a crazy woman! LOL!) to find something special to put with 4 quarters and managed to scrounge up a collectible coin from his daddy's desk. And with the stealth that only comes from 6 years of creeping around as softly as possible in order to not wake up a baby/child, I managed to get that first special toothfairy treat under his pillow without waking him OR his little brother! I am still amazed at myself for pulling that one off!! Call me by my new name - Super Stealthy Awesome Mommy (oh please - the name should really be "Dumb Luck Mama"!)!
Thankfully, these crazy happenings were all unbeknownst to the excited 6 yo who was more than pleased with his prize! And my prize is that teensy-weensy, tiny little tooth (holy cow -it's so little!) that brought so much joy when it first showed up 6 years ago in our first fat baby's toothless little grin. I have a special place for it in his baby book....
