The Commemoration of Deuce’s First Lost Tooth

(I apologize in advance for all the superhappy faces.¬† ūüėÄ )

Deuce lost his first tooth¬†the other day¬†and in true modern technology’s fashion I took to the internet looking for special and unique ways to commemorate the momentous occasion.¬† Eventually I landed¬†at Pinterest and found a zillion ideas, and finally chose this one.¬† Of course, I put my personal spin on it:

Isn’t it cute? ūüėÄ Plus, he can color in the fairy!

Also, via Google search, I found this supercute certificate.  I paired them together and placed them in an envelope (with a gift! :D).  Then I sprinkled some glitter in the envelope, sealed it, shook it, and taped it to his bedroom door.

The next morning, when¬†Deuce woke up for school, he quickly noticed his envelope.¬† “Mom!” he exclaimed as loudly, yet as quietly as he¬†possibly could.¬† He didn’t want to wake his siblings, after all.¬† Around the corner he came while I waited expectantly in another room.

“Mom!¬† My name is on my DOOR!¬† Come see it!”¬† He gushed with that special, innocent curiosity only a child can express – that moment that makes every parent’s heart smile – as he grabbed my hand and tugged me toward his bedroom.

I took the envelope off his door and sat down.¬† I showed him how to open the envelope with his finger (which he thought was a cool trick) and as he did, bits of glitter began to fall from the envelope.¬† “Are those SPARKLES?!?” he quietly squealed.¬† I took the letter, gift¬†and certificate out and showed them to him, then¬†read him¬†the letter.¬†¬†With his glistening, curious eyes he asked if he could keep them.¬† “Of course you can,” I replied.
