Remember when Lili was itty-bitty and only had two teeth and was a drool machine?
They have been wiggly for weeks, and reeeeallly wiggly for a few days, and then her bigger (and much adored) cousin assisted her in removing the first one. They were playing upstairs when after much whispering Lili called down to me asking for an apple. After my "no" answer she whined down to me "But I really want an apple to take out my tooth!!!"
And five minutes later she gleefully calls down that she lost her tooth! When I ask how she did it she proudly says that Gita did it. Gita shrugged with a pleased smile and said "I know how to get teeth out" and Lili looked over to her, her tooth on the palm of her hand, and beamed.
As Alex sat down in our entryway to remove his boots Lili came at him with her hands outstretched, presenting her prize. And then in a moment of chaos Seo bumped into her and the little tooth went flying into the abyss of our mudroom.
Yep, that happened.
So there we all were for fifteen minutes combing through every pebble and wood chip and scanning the floor for any sign of the tooth. When we broke the news that it wasn't looking promising to Lil she immediately got out her markers and started a detailed picture to explain the dire situation to the tooth fairy.
Here is a short video of the exciting thing that happened next!
