As a mom of four, I’ve witnessed the magic of losing teeth many times over. It’s a rite of passage, a tiny glimpse into the world of growing up, and a sprinkle of wonder that adds joy to our family’s experiences. I fondly remember my daughter’s pink and green floral tooth fairy pillow and how my boys shared a playful pirate-themed one. Those little pillows held more than just teeth; they held moments of childhood that we’ll forever treasure. My go to tooth fairy gift is usually a few dollars along with a light up toothbrush– sometimes we will add a favorite candy along with a “be sure to brush your teeth” reminder note.
Sometimes, my husband and I would forget our Tooth Fairy responsibilities, and there were nights when we’d wake up during the night to slip in a dollar or two under the pillow. Those moments of anticipation, and excitement in their eyes when they found their surprise in the morning were priceless. Losing teeth isn’t solely about those tiny teeth themselves; it’s about embracing each step of growing up and creating memories along the way. I’ve linked some fun Tooth Fairy pillows and finds below to help you create your own special moments with your little ones. Here’s to the wonder of childhood and the beauty of every lost tooth.
