At 7 years old, this girl finally lost her first tooth! She has been patiently(well, mostly) waiting for this to happen for quite some time.
One morning she asked me to look in her mouth because she thought she must have eaten something hard that scratched her gums behind her front bottom teeth. I was quite shocked to see 2 adult teeth that had already broken through the gums, well-hidden behind the baby teeth which were not even a tad bit loose yet.
By the next afternoon the first baby tooth was loose enough to pull! She was so excited to finally join the ranks of the “big kids” now.
Although when she was asked if she was going to put her tooth under her pillow she responded with, “Do you really expect me to believe that there is a little fairy that flies in my room and puts money under my pillow when I’m sleeping?!” Yeah she wasn’t buying it. You can imagine where things went from there. These kids are too practical to have the wool pulled over their eyes.
