JOSHUA LOST HIS FIRST TOOTH!
Joshua is 5 1/2 and he lost his first tooth this week! He was SO excited, jumping up and down, and he couldn't wait to put it under the pillow for the Tooth Fairy! I know that the Tooth Fairy is unusually generous in some parts of the country :), in fact, I know a house where when the Tooth Fairy visits, a $20 bill is left for each tooth. Wow! Really??? But here at our home, the Tooth Fairy visits and keeps it pretty simple :). After all, I think it is meant to be just a token of fun, not another opportunity to well...overindulge. Heck, when I was a kid, it was never over 50 cents! So Joshua put his tooth under the pillow, and sure enough the Tooth Fairy came and left him two $1 bills and some change. Joshua popped up at 6 AM and immediately looked under his pillow. You would have thought it was Christmas! He was jumping for joy with his treasure!
