Along with all of the fun and excitement this past weekend, Annabelle also finally lost her second tooth. It had been loose for almost three months. I didn't think it would ever fall out but finally on Saturday, Mark brushed her teeth and it fell right out. Now I don't expect to write about each and every tooth that falls out of my girls mouth. I wouldn't want to bore anyone with that much minutiae. I just wanted to tell my girls sweet story that she told me the next morning.
She woke up bright and early and came running into our bedroom, glittery dollar in hand. All smiles. Pure happiness. All that joy makes it much easier to get up at 7am lol. She snuggled in between Mark and I and told us her story.
"Mom, I heard the tooth fairy last night. I was sleep dreaming when I heard her. She leaned over me, kissed my cheek and whispered, Goodnight Sweetheart. I kept my eyes closed so that I wouldn't see her but I heard her and she loves me!"
My heart just about cracked open with love for my sweet girl. I love that she would hear the tooth fairy but know that she needed to keep her eyes closed or the magic would be gone. I'm so happy that her belief in the magical, in the impossible, is still so strong in her little six year old body.
