My middlest finally lost her first tooth.
I won't mention the fact that it took her a month to wiggle it out, because she was nervous.
It practically jumped out of her mouth when she finally decided to wiggle it.
At the house of a child who lives with one culture, that would mean one cultural tradition ~ as an American, it's the tooth fairy, the pillow, and the money.
And so we did just that.
But at the house of a child who lives with two cultures?
Our kiddos get a second tradition.
The tooth doesn't disappear under the pillow overnight, it is still under the pillow with a coin next to it in the morning.
Then it is time to carry out tradition number two ~ planting the tooth!
We head outside to throw the tooth on the roof of the house.
"Planting" a tooth will ensure that a new one will grow in its place.
We have a very tall roof, so after a few throws, Dad had to help a bit.
It's up there now......
and I'm sure it's growing rather nicely!
