We're missing a tooth!
Elizabeth's first tooth is missing although this has not dimmed her smile. The tooth saga began with an apple (don't they all?) and an exclamation, "Hey, my tooth moved!" She excitedly wiggled the tooth and complained about the difficulties eating for 2 days. On the third day, her school principal, who is apparently somewhat of a legendary tooth-puller, handily plucked it right out while Elizabeth bravely squeezed her eyes shut. The standard tooth fairy visit followed, and Elizabeth eagerly stashed away 5 dollars for our upcoming trip to NYC. Now, predictably, she's complaining that it's not very exciting to just have a hole in your mouth after all the excitement of the actual loss and tooth fairy visit has passed.
