Tooth #2 is out

I was on the phone with my dad when I hear, "I lost my tooth, I LOST MY TOOTH!" Papa was happy to hear and talk to the big girl who has lost 2 teeth in one week.  I wonder if she will be missing the top two teeth come Christmas time.  :)

So what does my family do for losing teeth?  You know we don't really do Santa or Easter Bunny so why would we do tooth fairy.  If you chose to do them that's great but my husband and I decided we truly did not want to confuse our children by allowing them to believe in something that is not real then find out its not real and then contemplate if God is real.  It can be a slippery slope and this is the path we chose as parents.  

We still do fun stuff.  My kids still get fun stuff in their stockings at Christmas, they get to do Easter egg hunts and have an Easter basket, and for the tooth fairy, she still puts her tooth under her pillow and wakes up to something special.  We just get to take credit rather then a made up character.  Again, if you still do it, great, but my husband and I really felt like we didn't need to do it.  Honestly, with my kids around a lot of teens they have heard it several times that "Santa's not real" etc etc and with young ears my daughter even repeats it and knows.  

For my daughters first tooth she got 4 coupons to one to go out to eat, one to go to the candy store down the street, one to stay up past bed time, and the last one for an activity.  For her second tooth my husband and I each drew a minion from Despicable Me.  We told her we were going to go see the movie at the theater and she is thrilled.  (I keep telling her that she will not be this spoiled for each tooth she loses.)  I think I got a $1 per tooth so this is a big inflation.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
