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

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
