In November, Elisa had to have four of her perfectly good adult teeth pulled out. It was so sad! But her mouth is too little for all those teeth so some of them had no room to come down at all. So these were pulled and with the help of her braces hopefully she'll have great, straight teeth. Don't these look ugly though? Nothing like the little baby teeth that fall out when they're ready with no long, fat roots attached. (At least you can't tell how bloody they actually are in this picture.)
Sabrina loves to write. She writes letters, stories and writes just to write. She absolutely loves to write long letters to the Tooth Fairy and Santa and everyone else. So when Elisa had her four teeth to put under her pillow, Sabrina decided to take advantage of the opportunity and write another letter to the Tooth Fairy and stick it with Elisa's teeth.
Dear Tooth Fairy,
I have so many questions I might not get to ask all of them, but here is one. What is your real name? Are you married? Do you know when I'm going to lose a tooth? Do you have a pet? How many teeth do you have? How old are you? Have you been seen? Is your job hard? Do you get scared? Are you big or little? How do you get in? Do you get scared? Do you have parents?
The Tooth Fairy wrote her a note back (not at all blog-worthy in its creativity--I'm sure she was busy and tired with so many homes to visit) and answered her tricky questions so Sabrina was happy.
Then in December she wrote a note to Santa and to the elves. I will tell you in another post what happened with that--not so happy.
