In France, we have The Little Mouse

It happened. Her first tooth just dropped.

Unlike in the USA where tooth fairy would come collect the tooth, in France we have The Little Mouse. Yes, we told her that the mouse would passby to give her a present or a coin, she was excited.

She has a loose tooth since two days, then she decided to take it off, I suspect that she did it so that she could get a present quicker. She put the tooth under a pillow, and kept going to check it out if the mouse has passed by.

Well, she only got it the second morning, as we didn't expect the tooth would come out so quickly. I had to make a trip to the local grocery to pick up something. She was thrilled when she saw the present, and immediately put the two euro coin into her saving box.

Tooth fairy or Little Mouse, it is just something the occidental world created to please their kids, just like the character of Santa Claus. One day she would find out that it is just an invented story, hope she will take it well though.

    I loved la petite souris when I was a kid :-) Here, kids have the "tooth fairy".

  2. so fast!? my boy's tooth just started to be a bit shaky .. I reckon it will takes a couple of weeks until it falls.

  3. Did she pull the tooth out herself with her hands? So brave to do so.

    1. Yes she did. I think she was eager to get her gift from the mouse. :-)
