I had a very interesting phone conversation with my four year old niece last night. She called me because she had two very important things to tell me. The first is that she'd just lost her first milk tooth while brushing her teeth. She was very excited, but a bit upset because the tooth fairy won't be able to get it from the drain. I calmed her down and reassured her that she still had many teeth for the tooth fairy.
The second reason she called me still has me in shock. She announced that, since she is a big girl now (turning five in November and losing baby teeth), she wants to move out of home when she turns twenty-one! Apparently, that will be very soon, but she won't move in with Tin-tin (my nephew) because he is her brother. She will be moving in with Ted!
This little girl isn't even five yet, but she has her future well planned out!
