Principesa is of an age where it’s about time for her to lose a tooth. At her last dental checkup her dentist did routine x-rays and said it looked like a few of them would be coming out soon. Naturally, this thrilled her little heart, and she has been anxiously wiggling her teeth since then. She wiggles them so often and so hard that she is actually about to make them loose herself! She also routinely tells me how much money her friends got from the tooth fairy and speculates on how much she’ll get for her first tooth. I haven’t broken it to her that just because we live in West St. Louis County, our tooth fairy will most likely not be leaving ten dollar bills. Hopefully gold dollar coins will be just as impressive.

Note to self: ask for some gold dollar coins next time I’m at the bank.
