Surviving our first lost tooth {#ThemeThursday}

Well, she survived.

I survived.

My little girl is down one tooth, but after the anesthesia wore off, she gradually eased back to her spunky, indomitable self. She even put her princess dress on again.

Her dad says she did a brilliant job at the dentist today, aided by some "silly juice" to help calm her. I was really anxious about the anesthesia, but she did great, and she's fine.

Micaela at California to Korea has resurrected Theme Thursday. For today's theme, "Portrait," I asked Lucy if she'd be my subject with her new, gap-toothed smile.

Sam, ever the helpful older brother, asked if the theme was "Jack O'Lantern."

This was her response.

Fortunately, I did get treated to her new smile after you can see it, too.

Thanks for praying us through this morning. All's well that ends well. I'd say we are going to be more careful in the future, but I honestly don't know how we could have avoided this one!

What's the going rate for the tooth fairy? I think I got a quarter per tooth, but it seems like the rate might have gone up since then. Lucy has already informed me that she knows the Tooth Fairy is not real, but she'd like a visit from her, anyway.
