Lola and the Tooth Fairy

About a year ago Lola was using her teeth to open something, despite numerous parental calls of “Teeth are not a tool!” In frustration she pulled a bit too hard and tears and a little blood followed. She complained the tooth hurt so Steven took her into the dentist who said something may, or may not result, we would just have to wait and see.
Well one year later and 6 months of increasing wigglyness and the tooth has gone. Now I have two children with prematurely absent front teeth.
Of course we had just been watching that hilarious (thanks to the sublime Steve Merchant) movie The Tooth Fairy, so Lolie was fully prepped on what needed to happen when one loses ones tooth. The tooth itself was never found, but the tooth fairy was undeterred and Lola got her first dollar.

First Love

Oliver told me today that Sogna, his classmate was his girlfriend. “Oh” I replied, “does Sogna know?”
“Yes, I asked her and she said yes”
“So what does this mean, that she is your girlfiend?”
“Well, we get to play together”. Pause. “And when I grown up I guess I know who I’m going to marry”
For a couple of days there was hand-holding before class and general closeness. And then. it was over. Just like that. No exclamation, instead “Can I have a playdate with Tiare?” Ruthless, I tell ya.
