tooth fairy pillow

tooth pillow

It’s been milestone city around here lately: Parker started kindergarten, turned 5 and lost his first tooth all within a week. It makes me sad, yet also a little excited because it means I can finally renew my driver’s license and replace the horrible picture that was taken one-week post-partum.

It’s unclear whether the tooth was actually ready to come out or whether we helped it along … On Sunday, Parker jumped at me while I was sitting on the couch and hit his chin. He laughingly said, “You almost knocked my teeth out Mommy!” and lo and behold, the tooth actually was loose. When it fell out a few days later, my husband sent me a picture of the gaping¬†hole, and I raced home from work to whip up this tooth fairy pillow before they got home from a playdate. The wonderful pattern is by Larissa Holland at mmmcrafts. Thanks to her great instructions, I was able to make it in just half an hour, though it came out about bit lopsided because I was so rushed, and I didn’t add any cute embellishments because Parker’s favorite things are knights and astronauts, and I couldn’t see any way to create easy armor or a spacesuit for a tooth.¬† But he didn’t seem to mind.
