Long Live the Tooth Fairy!

Baby Magic has lost her first tooth! It seems like it took forever! About a year ago the dentist told me the two bottom teeth were loosening. She was so excited to loose a tooth! The adult tooth is about halfway in already.

How did she lose it? I forced her to eat a pear. I was tired of her sticking her hands in her mouth, even though the dentist encouraged wiggling it. Her hand stayed in her mouth, clean or not. So, I told her to eat a pear.

You would have thought the world ended and began all at the same time. The blood freaked her out, but she was so excited that the tooth fairy would be paying her a visit. We made sure to get all of the blood out of her mouth by rinsing with warm water and then a kid friendly, alcohol free mouthwash. Then we brushed the tooth. I used a little peroxide to get the blood off of it. Then we stuck it in a little tiny baggy and placed it in the tooth fairy pillow I made for her. I hung the pillow next to her bed so that I wouldn't wake her.

To make this, I used felt sheets, ribbons, cotton batting (for the stuffing) and a glue gun. It was simple enough to make. The top of the tooth is open so it serves as a pocket to hold the baggie with the tooth.

Once she was asleep, I removed the tooth and gave her a Tooth Receipt (I found the image on Google), $2 and 2 chocolate coins. She's obsessed with chocolate coins! When she woke up the next morning, she was so excited. Then she told me that she knows that I'm the tooth fairy and that I woke up in the middle of the night to sneak in her room. She also said that her grammy told her that the tooth fairy gives $10 for the first tooth. I told her to tell grammy she owes her $8 and played dumb about being the tooth fairy. At least I didn't lie, right? 

By the way, she totally knows this is my handwriting. As I was writing, I thought to myself "dang I should have typed this!"

I consider this a win overall though. It was fun, and I did not have to get up in the middle of the night. She goes to bed at 8pm. I went in at 9pm!

I have no idea what people do with baby teeth! I purchased a little tooth saver box on Amazon, but even with that I'm like what do I do with this? LOL Somebody give me some guidance!

What do you do with your children's teeth? Do you let them believe in the tooth fairy? Let me know, I'm interested!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
