A phone message

Den and I came home tonight to this message on our phone,
from our 5 1/2 year old granddaughter:



In case you can't quite make it out, this is what she says:
"Hi Grandma Honey, it's me Elora
Today my tooth just came out
and it was very exciting
and we just put it in my tooth fairy pillow
and I like having my tooth out,
Bye."

I felt like jumping up and down and screaming. I was just soooooooo excited.
Why? I don't quite understand it myself.
Probably for the same reason I jumped up and down and screamed the day her Daddy lost his first tooth.

Jill, This is too cute. I understand about getting excited over stuff like that. I got excited over the fact that my son went in the swimming pool the other day. He hasn't done that in a while. I hope the tooth fairy is good to her.

Oh how wonderful Karen. I bet Daniel LOVED the pool!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Would you like me to add you to the Grand Roll on my side bar? That way we can keep up with each other!

Dear Jill, What a precious message from Elora. And you've got it saved for all time!!! My 6 year old grandson, Knox, called me Sunday with the message that "the goose" was dressed in a bikini and sun hat. The goose is a statue in a lady's yard in Chico and every day or so they drive by to see what the goose is dressed in that day. I thought his dismay was because the goose was wearing a bikini on a Sunday, but it turns out he always thought the goose was a boy and boys don't wear bikinis! Love, Susan and Dad

I can confirm that the tooth fairy was indeed good to her. Not only did she get a personalized, signed message from the tooth fairy saying she could keep the first tooth, but she also got $10. Today, Elora combined that with money saved from her allowance to get the Hannah Montana doll she had been coveting for many weeks.

Me, I don't remember there being so much blood when my own teeth came out.

What is this tooth fairy's number? I have some old teeth from when I was in 6th grade. Do you think that would work????
