The Tooth

... finally came off last night. Her special request, "Can I keep it? I don't want to give it to the tooth fairy."

you know what? i have a jewelry box full of teeth, yes, teeth--teeth that either fell off or were taken off by a dentist of my 7 children, as they grew up. gross, but each tooth has a story to tell. lol

Hey Poch! We are doing the tooth thing too. The second one will soon be out.

hi, SM! yikes, i don't know if i want a treasure chest of fallen teeth. are they tagged/labelled? how can you tell them apart? i'm well, thanks.

Hey, Flip! she finally agreed to move the tooth from the current location - inside a matryoshka doll (the russian nesting thingys). We're moving it into the "special box," where a lock of hair from her first hair cut is kept.

I have a small bottle with my older son's little teeth. Sebi has a little tooth shaped box for his soon-to-be-two lost teeth. I like the idea of the nesting dolls to hold keepsakes. Makes it more special...hmm for some reason, I suddenly thought of my tonsils. Had them removed when I was nine and took them home with me. They sat in an alcohol filled gerber babyfood jar for years. I wonder what happened to them...

Alrighty, Ninang here owes Rama yet another gift.

We're taking her shopping right, when you come?!

And then maybe to lunch, and maybe the salon?

I know, I know, but that's me and I know Rama will love it!

Funny about the tonsils, Flip. What would you do, I wonder, if you had an appendectomy?

Hi, Ninang! OMG. She would love that. Game!

It's just too nasty a thought!
