After her 5th birthday her first tooth began to wag. Two months later the tooth has finnaly fallen, for her great joy, and now she proudly boasts an empty space where once had a small tooth. More proudly yet because the new tooth has started to rise, it was behind the old one and not underneath as expected. So tonight she left the tooth under her pillow and when she woke up this morning she found a bag full of coins!
During these two months I has time to prepared the ideal place to keep her teeth and create a memory that later she can give value.
The first thing I did was a fairy doll and her cloths in the colors Mafalda choosed, and more than out of my imagination, this litle fairy was totally born out of my hands, has I made it without plan or pattern. I then made a record card to record the day each tooth falls in the same way I’ve recorded the days on which each tooth was born.
And it seemed to me that the set was not complete and so I made a kind of sleeping bag for the little fairy to rest while she waits patiently for the other teeth to fall.
Mafalda still only saw the fairy and took a lot of exercise to keep her away from the doll has she insists on taking the doll to bed with her. Today she will have a big surprise when she finally sees the final result!
