Got Teeth?

My two boys are 7 1/2  & 6 and neither one has lost a tooth yet!
What gives?!?
Well, we finally have some loose teeth (yeah) and I'm gonna be ready with a tooth fairy pillow.  (If you build sew it, they will come...)
Martha has a great tutorial HERE that I used....mostly.

Since I wanted to personalize the pillows, I cut my fabric (one of their old flannel baby blankets,) into 8.5" squares.  This size fits in my printer.  I used the freezer paper technique to get a name on the fabric that I could hand embroid.  Besides that, I pretty much followed good 'ol Martha girl (except a lot less measuring, pining, get the idea!)
If you read this far (and you have a minute,) could you let me know how old your children were when they lost their first teeth?
I'm not so worried about the older one not losing teeth yet, just hoping the younger one doesn't lose one of his first!
(And just in case you might be wondering, we go to the dentist every 6 months.  She says its all ok, but still...mommas are the ones that really know!)
Thanks for the input!

***UPDATE!!! Less than 10 minutes after this post, the oldest lost a tooth!  Hallelujah!!***


May share the tooth fairy pillow with some of the fun parties in the side bar =>

Quick old were your kids when they got their 1st tooth? My daughter was 7 months, but my son is 14 months & still doesn't have any. My hubs is a dentist & he assures me it's fine. I'm just curious. ;-)

This is just darling! I love it!

Marie said...

So cute! But please tell me the tooth fairy didn't leave a $100! Our tooth fairy leaves a quarter, she cannot compete!

Donene said...

Love your cute pillows! Thanks for visiting and your nice comments!

marissa said...

My son just started losing teeth over the past month. He has lost 3 so far (all on the bottom). He is 5, will be 6 in March. Good to hear that your son did lose one so soon after writing the post! :)

Saw your pillows in a linky party and had to visit. I'm trying to find a better way for the tooth fairy to make her stops because she seems to forget and take an extra day or two to come!!

Hi Jami, the tooth fairy pillows are so cute. Thanks so much for sharing them. You know, I can't remember much about my boys losing their teeth, all I remember is that it happened, I guess they would have been around five, and we put a quarter under their pillow. I think today it is a Loonie, times have changed, LOL I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
