Today we walked to Hachiojidera shrine. While we were there the children were chewing on raw chestnuts (fallen ones) and it seems Amy's wobbly bottom tooth came out. Everyone looked for it but we couldn't find it. Sorry....
Without having to worry about her wobbly tooth she was able to eat school lunch with real gusto for the first time in a long time."
Waahhhhh. I'm so sad. Amy's first lost tooth and it's lost... Well, I guess I could go out to the shrine and turn over all the half chewed raw chestnuts (why were the kids chewing on raw chestnuts they picked off the ground??) but I think it's a lost cause.
Amy was completely unfazed and matter of fact: "Yeah. it came out. No, I haven't got it in my bag. No, I don't know where it is."
I was far more panicked about the tooth fairy dilemma than she was but we decided that a letter with a picture of her tooth would suffice. Meg was quite taken with this idea and wondered if she could just draw a picture of a tooth and get money, too? Nope, nice try honey.
Now I've just got to remember to hide the picture when the tooth fairy does her thing.
And think of a reply to the teacher....
