On Wed. Sophie’s mother had emailed me that “Sophie is REALLY looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. She has a surprise and keeps asking to make sure you’ll be there to pick her up. Very excited.”
So, yesterday (Thursday), as always, I was there ( her school).
“Hi, Sophie, I hear you have a surprise!” “Mmmmm,” she replied through her clenched lips. “What is it? I’m so excited!” She held out–with one hand over her mouth. . . through which leaked giggles. . . .until she settled into her car seat–then off came her hand & she opened her mouth to show me–what you who are reading this have already guessed–she lost her first tooth! “Grammy, last night, I was so excited to tell you that I woke up in the middle of the night!” “Sophie, last night, I was so excited to find out that I woke up in the middle of the night, too!”
p.s. Yes, she reported, that the tooth fairy came & left her a note with fairy dust sprinkled on it, although Sophie thought that it was weird to sleep on a tooth.
