Lexi's been working on this tooth for a long time now. It was loose before school got out, and the grown up tooth has been pushing up behind it and is almost fully out. I was starting to worry that the baby tooth was going to have a little extra help to leave her mouth. They have a dentist appointment in a couple of weeks, and I half expected that we'd be bringing the tooth home in a container instead of in her mouth. But thankfully a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup provided the intervention we needed and the tooth came out in the car on the way home from gymnastics. After a little drama, because blood requires drama in this house, she was proud to display the tooth for a picture (in fact, she demanded a picture) and then put it under her pillow for the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy, true to her nature, left two quarters and no doubt in Lexi's mind (unlike some people) that she's real.
