Look what happened at our house!!!
After much wiggling and angst...the first tooth is FREE!
It's front neighbor is likely to follow in the weeks ahead. Let the toothlessness begin!
MomE decided to play tooth fairy. In a gentle moment this morning, as a sleepy Emma rejoiced over her shiny quarter (*sigh, inflation!)...we talked about how the Bible is our only source of real TRUTH.
We talked about how it's so fun to play Santa...but he's really DadE. Then we said, the tooth fairy is also a fun game to play...but *it's a secret* it's really MomE!
This is important because we talk about Jesus alot...and although we have never seen him either...he is VERY real! In fact, he's God's only Son! Faith is not a fun game that we play...it's a real and amazing JOY!
We do call it a *secret* because many of her friends don't know the truth about Santa, the Tooth Fairy...or Jesus. For now, it is their Mommies and Daddies job to tell them the TRUTH.
