All I want for Christmas...

This should be Layla's theme song! She finally lost her first tooth... and boy was it eventful. I was at work and got a call from David. I was in the middle of something, so I didn't get the full story. Upon leaving work and calling home to see what was going on, he exclaimed that Layla was hyperventilating and laying down. She begged him to pull out her tooth, claiming that it was very loose. It wasn't! He pulled and it hurt and blood started pouring. Needless to say, she was screaming and having a panic attack. David got concerned because of how she was acting and finally made her go lay down before she passed out. When I got home she showed me the tooth that was dangling in her mouth. After a little while, I took her into our room and asked her if I could dry it off with the paper towel, thinking to myself that I was going to try to see how loose it really was. Let's just say that the root on this thing looked extremely scary! So, upon inspecting it and hearing her lecture me about how it was going to hurt and not to be too rough, I dried and did a little tug to see what would happen. And lo and behold, the tooth just came right out. She didn't know, she was still telling me what to do and what not to do! I showed her the tooth and she let out a scream. And then I hear David in the living room saying "I told you, she won't let you pull it." So of course, I had to reply that it was a scream of shock that it was over and didn't really hurt. He's still mad that he did all the work and I got all the glory!

And the Tooth Fairy came to visit her... and let's just say that the Tooth Fairy that comes to our house must not be the same that visits other little children in our small town. Because last year Layla exclaimed how rich the Tooth Fairy was in Reidsville because she brought Madison $20.00! Yeah, that Tooth Fairy might be rich, but she must not have our address!
