The day had been a long time coming. Ever since the day that Jaden found out that kids lose teeth, she began wiggling and wiggling her tiny bottom teeth. She swore up and down that they were loose! She convinced herself that she could feel them moving, even when we couldn't.
Finally, the day came. Jaden had her first official loose tooth! Every single day, she would tell me that it was getting looser. Every single day, she wiggled and wiggled.
One evening, she went to dinner with Gramma J and Grampa Max. She bit down on her food and YOWZA! The tooth was coming out! It was just hanging there! Eventually, it popped out... and bled... J screamed. The entire restaurant knew that she was losing her first tooth. The servers were very nice and brought napkins and water. They even gave the girls money to go play in the game room (in other words, they paid the screaming kid to leave!)
Jaden survived and was so excited to show us her toothless smile!
I gave her a tiny bag to put her tooth in so it could go under her pillow for the tooth fairy.
Jaden woke up the next morning to a little surprise in place of the tooth...
For the record, she has since lost another tooth... while with Gramma J.
