My baby has lost his first tooth. OK, he's not a baby, he's six years old, but it seems like JUST YESTERDAY when he grew those two little front teeth (below). Where did all that time go? Sigh...
Feeling melancholy, I decided on a bit of crafting to cheer me up, and found a tutorial for this cute little Tooth Fairy Pillow. I made it with some 1970s 'faux patchwork' fabric and felt.
Last night, the tiny tooth was placed in the pocket, popped under his pillow and magically - this morning the tooth had gone. In its place, a vintage fairies swap card, a little note and five dollars. Next time I think Ms Tooth Fairy will bring only one dollar, otherwise she will go broke, but this was a special first-time thing!
I asked my son what he is going to spend the money on and he told me he has promised Rita (his cat) that he'll buy her a new toy. What a sweetheart he is!
