Recently, Elizabeth lost another milk tooth again. It's one of bottom front tooth. This is the 3rd one already. I was not able to capture the moment or keep the teeth previously because it never happened in front of me.
There was once, Elizabeth went to bed with a shaky tooth and woke up the next day without the tooth anymore. We were wondering whether she actually swallowed the tooth in her sleep. And no, I didn't check her stools. LOL. It's still a mystery to us and we will never know the truth.
This time, her tooth dropped right in front of me while she was eating. So what else? I whipped out my camera and took pictures. She was a little shock and scared when the tooth suddenly came loose. But I calmed her down and told her that if she gets lucky she might get a visit by the tooth fairy. That made her happy and forget her fears. I told her that she has to put her tooth under her pillow that night and the tooth fairy will come to visit her while she is sleeping. The tooth fairy will give a reward in exchange of the tooth. As always, there will be many questions after a story has been told.
Elizabeth: What is the reward?
Me: We shall see.
Elizabeth: But we cannot see if not the tooth fairy won't come.
Me: -_-..I mean we will know the next day.
Elizabeth: Then what if I wake up in the middle of the night to find you? What if I see the tooth fairy and the tooth fairy sees me? Then she won't give me the reward.
Me: Then try not to wake up in the middle of the night. Try to go back to sleep quickly.
Elizabeth: But I will surely come and find you at night!
Me: Sigh. Don't worry, you won't get to meet the tooth fairy and you will get your reward.
Elizabeth: How come?
Me: The tooth fairy will make sure she won't bump into you. Fairies are not to be seen by people. She will make sure you won't wake up when she comes. Don't worry.
That night, as soon as she fell asleep, I quickly put a RM1 note under her pillow before I forget. So cheapskate this mummy, only give RM1 but never mind lah I already spent a lot on her. Hahaha.
She was happy enough with the RM1 the next day. How innocent my little girl is. ;)
