Courtney lost a tooth today. For most kids her age this is an exciting event. They get to put their tooth under their pillow, the tooth fairy comes and the next morning they wake up to find money under their pillow. How exciting is that?! It’s one of those moments that is also exciting as the parent watching their child enjoy the whole experience.
That is not how it has looked for each tooth Courtney has lost so far. This is tooth number three and for each tooth, I’ve wrestled with why ￼I even bother. So, why do I bother? Because it is important to teach her about the experience in hopes that maybe one of these times when she loses a tooth she will get excited about what will be under her pillow.
