Her First Lost Tooth...
On Saturday afternoon (just before Vespers!), Sugar Plum lost her first tooth! We have been patiently waiting for it to fall out. Sugar Plum wiggled and wiggled it faithfully for days and all at once, POP! Out it came with very little fuss. We showed to to Papa who cheered and as Sugar Plum turned on the faucet to rinse it, the tooth whisked from her hand down the bathroom sink drain. Fortunately, Papa was able to take the drain apart and retrieve it. He turned on the water to wash it off again, and WHOOPS! Down the drain it went again! This time, he had to take apart the pipe underneath the sink to get it. He found it and we carefully used a little towel to polish it off, having finally learned our lesson. We found a little lacquered box and safely tucked the tooth in for safe keeping. What an adventure!

What a good papa!
