Lily woke early this morning and immediately had a look under her pillow. At first she was disappointed to see her tooth still there and then saw the little package that was left. A letter and two toonies. Lily was so thrilled AND she gets to keep her teeth for further inspection. Perhaps when all her teeth have fallen out she’ll want to bury them or follow some other practice celebrating her maturing…
Thanks very much for the comments to my last post. It’s amazing how good such support feels.
After Lily’s appointment, we had to go straight to the ferry terminal in a rush to catch the next ferry to the mainland. I wrote that post within an hour of the appointment when the feelings were still really real and in the moment.
I’m really unsure how it was possible but I did seem to be able to keep my panicked feelings from Lily but I didn’t think I held it together like I wanted to do. I felt so disappointed with how I physically reacted when it seemed to matter the most. I was still feeling all that afraid and queasiness for hours after!
