Last week Darah, out of nowhere, had this to say over breakfast: “It’s no fair, mom!” When I asked her what wasn’t fair (thinking she was going to tell me that her sister’s bagel was half a centimeter larger than hers, or something similar), she further explained. She said, “I’m the ONLY kindergartner in my class who hasn’t lost a tooth yet! When is it gonna be MY turn?”
Oh, what a bittersweet moment I had right then! It was one of the first times that Darah has expressed frustration at still being “little” and an eagerness to get to be big. She later said, “I can’t wait to have all my grown up teeth, because then I’ll be grown up!”
Slow down, little one!
Still, the moment made me realize that she really is going to start losing her teeth soon, and I need to have a plan together for maximum tooth fairy success. Mighty Twenty is a company I recently connected with, and they are all about celebrating the journey that Darah can’t wait to be on! There are twenty baby teeth that kids will lose over the course of several years, and Mighty Twenty wants to celebrate every step (or rather, tooth) along the way.
Mighty Twenty offers a fun variety of pillows perfect for the tooth fairy to easily spot, complete with a special pocket in the front for the tooth, and a larger pocket in the back for the tooth tracker journal.
I love the journal aspect so that you can easily keep up with the dates that teeth are lost. I think I have a chart like this in a baby book…somewhere…yeah, the odds aren’t good that I’ll remember to update that. But this little journal, which is conveniently located in the back pocket of the pillow, has a darn good chance of getting filled out!
Additionally, Mighty Twenty has a fun videos that are perfect for kids who are about to start losing teeth or who are currently snaggle-toothed! They offer a fun way to help kids who might be hesitant about losing teeth to feel more connected with other kids who have gone through it.
I really love that Mighty Twenty is celebrating losing teeth for what it really is: a developmental milestone of life! You can shop online for Mighty Twenty products, including the pillow and journal set featured here ($29.95). Or you can check the list of retailers to see if you have a local option (shout out to Genevieve Bond, here in Chattanooga!).
Do you have any special rituals related to losing teeth? Anyone want to tell me the going rate for a tooth these days?
