Tuesday night was tooth fairy night so I went to find the little specimen jar that held Zoe’s teeth after the operation. The girls both had a good look at the teeth (ugly little suckers and so big compared to the bits you see when they are where they should be!) and as I tipped them into the special glass jar filled with water Izzy said ….
“there goes the broken teeth… with a bit of ‘Zoe meat ‘on them”
But you know she was right… if you looked closely on two of the teeth there was still some um.. ahem.. er.. flesh on them…’zoe meat’
Euuuuuuuuuuw gross… that’s enough to put me off eating meat for at least a week!
Thankfully the tooth fairy has a pretty strong stomach and, un-phased by the ‘zoe meat’, exchanged the three teeth for $2 a piece and a heck of a lot of fairy sparkles (they came out a lot faster than I thought they would!). Unfortunately Zoe has no clue about the value of money and in all her lovely sharingness declared that she would spend the money on new fairy wings for her AND Izzy… lucky for the tooth fairy I had the cash to make up the difference!
Our first follow up appointment with the dentists at RCH went well.. she is healing well, outside swelling almost gone, inside still swollen but ok. Stitches poking out everywhere so hopefully they will dissolve and fall out soon. She is smiling again, really showing off ‘the gap’. She’s figured out how to eat most things, as long as we cut them up small, but she is still talking funny. S’s and R’s are a problem and I still say she sounds like one of the Goons!
