The tooth fairy came, woohoo!

Lily finally lost her first tooth (at 6 years and 9 1/2 months). Although technically she lost 2 teeth and even more technically, she didn't lose them, I had them extracted. Her permanent tooth started to erupt behind her baby tooth so there was no way that sucker was going to fall out on it's own. And while she was numb, we just pulled the other one too since I'm 100% sure it's going to happen again.

Lily did very well for the procedure. A little nitrous oxide goes a long way. Plus she's very comfortable with staff I work with. She complained about some gum pain on the way home, but I got her a milk shake and she was good to go.

She put her teeth in a hanging pillow thingy on her door knob. And this morning I heard her exclaiming, "I'm rich, I'm rich!" The tooth fairy left her TEN $1 bills.

Congratulations Lily! Hope she got lots of money for the torture you put her through!
