Around here, Brooklyn is a rockstar. Everyone loves Brooklyn. At any given time, there is a line of siblings waiting for a turn to hold her. Each of them takes great pride in their special relationship with her, and their ability to make her laugh and squeal. It is so sweet to watch their relationships grow.
Right now, Brooklyn is especially high on my list of favorite little people. You see, Destany had this tooth that was driving me crazy. You know the kind. The one hanging crooked, right smack in the middle of her smile, just begging to be pulled. But Destany was not interested in having it pulled. I begged for the privilege, but she was not to be swayed. And stories of tying a string around it and slamming a door to yank it did not help any. (Nice try, honey.)
To my great delight, Brooklyn took care of that tooth tonight. Destany was playing with her when she suddenly shouted out that Brooklyn had knocked her tooth out. And sure enough....as she explained what had happened, that stubborn little tooth fell out of her mouth and onto the carpet in front of her. Wooohooo! That's my baby.
Now let's just hope the 'Tooth Fairy' remembers to follow up on this tooth! A few nights ago Destany received $1.25 and an apology note from said fairy. That tooth had been under her pillow for a couple nights, so she accrued a little interest!
