Dimples lost one of her front baby teeth last night. She tucked it into the special Tooth-Fairy pillow. As we talked about the Tooth Fairy coming, Honeybee told us about the tradition in Ethiopia.

If I understood her correctly, the bird takes the tooth and makes it into a new permanent tooth which then grows in.
How interesting is that?
