Have you heard of this folklore...The tooth fairy is a fantasy figure ... when a child loses a baby tooth, if its placed beneath the bed pillow, the tooth fairy will visit while the child sleeps, replacing the lost tooth with a small payment..:-)
I remember tracking n recording every milestone of Shreya...it was day after day during the initial days..slowly it moved to month after month...after her 1 st year, I almost stopped...May be coz, I got busy with other work or got over the "new Mum syndrome".
Now, after a long time, im registering something which reiterates, my baby is growing..
Her baby tooth has been shaky for the last few days...when she got bewildered...worried...what will happen if it falls...a little consoling and making her understand that everybody goes thru this, put her fears on a backstage.
We did tell her what she should do,if it falls at school...:-)
Well,today the front tooth did fall...don knw why...we both were pretty excited...we quickly washed it and put it safely inside a box...
Googled and found very interesting facts and different customs n traditions followed across the globe for this what we look at as a "simple normal growing pattern".
Now shreya is one tooth down...and gives a bridge smile !!
And is already worried about what the "boys" wud tease !!!!!
