Lost Teeth

Our oldest girl, Grey, lost her first TWO teeth.  I noticed about three weeks ago that a permanent tooth was coming in behind a baby tooth.  I waited a week thinking that the baby tooth would loosen.  It never did, so I made an appointment with our dentist in TN and he said that the baby tooth had to come out.  He also found a second one was in he same shape and pulled it. 

So, unfortunately, she lost her first two teeth unnaturally.  She did not seem to care.  I knit her a special pouch to take with her to the dentist.  The dentist was kind enough to deposit the teeth in a treasure chest and then put the treasure chest into the pouch.  That night the tooth fairy visited.  He exchanged the teeth for six gold coins.  I think she got a few extra for the suffering at the dentist.  She was a trooper according to Henry.   The extraction required a couple of shots in the gum.  but, she made it and is six dollars richer for the trouble!  Here’s before and afterimg_0193.jpg     img_0198.jpg

    Merry Christmas!
    How nice to knit a special pouch for the precious teeth. I cross-stitched and sewed tooth fairy pillows for my 3, a fairy for the oldest, a toy soldier for the boy in the middle and ??? for the youngest.
    I’ve met you at Sock Club at Crazy Girl Yarn Shop. Admired the skull cap you made and have been admiring the photos of the subject wearing the cap. Finally came across your blog address again. Staying home from work for a few extra unexpected days recovering from a broken ankle.
