Tooth Fairy Tale

As most of you know, Molly lost her first tooth on Tuesday.  I promised a follow up but got sick so, here is the follow up a day later.
There it is!  The missing tooth!  Molly is a little late in losing her teeth (almost 7 1/2 years old) but then again, she was just shy of her first birthday when the first one came in.  She is so happy to be just like everyone else.    I think that she was mostly excited to have a visit from the Tooth Fairy.  She woke up the next morning and it was like Christmas.  She was so excited to show everyone what the Tooth Fairy brought.  Here it is....
She got a certificate from the Tooth Fairy, a new Hello Kitty toothbrush, a small bag of tooth flossers, a Camp Rock lip balm and a one dollar bill that was folded into an origami heart.  She understands that the plethora of "loot" only comes with the first tooth and it will be a dollar from now on, as per her friends and classmates.
Now on to her Fun Friday lunch!  We were part of a photo contest through Laptop Lunches on Facebook and got a ton of inspiration from the other contestants.  Thanks for the ideas!!!
Our main entree/fruit is apple sandwiches.  We sliced a large honey crisp apple into thick slices, used a cookie cutter to cut out the core, then spread peanut butter on one side, Trader Joe's Fleur De Sel Caramel Sauce on the other and sandwiched them together.  We added a little gold star pick so that Molly knows what a star she is.  She needs a little extra encouragement for her spelling test.
*side note - We think that the Trader Joe's Fleur De Sel Caramel Sauce would make a flip flop taste good.  All you need is a spoon!

Our vegetable side is missing!  We are planning on grilled vegetable salads for dinner tomorrow night, so she'll be fine with missing her veggies at lunch.

Our dairy side is blueberry yogurt.  We have several varieties and figured that blueberry would be nice change.

Our Fun Friday treats are Trader Joe's Ginger Cats cookies and two Frooties Tootsie Rolls.  Molly adores the Ginger Cat cookies because they are very delicious and they help her nervous stomach.  Also, we went for our annual trek to Baldinger's Candy Store this past weekend so we had to include a little something from there.  

Have a great weekend everyone!  


  1. Ok, that caramel sauce sounds fantastic! I think I'll skip the flip flop though!
