We're 2 for 2 now with both of the oldest children. Finn lost his 2nd tooth yesterday on account of an apple. Man those apples...they always seem to getcha!
So as he should, he put his little snaggly tooth under his pillow in the "small things" wooden box in preparation for the tooth fairy.
So as Finn entered the scene just now, coming down from his bedroom with a soft cry in his voice I felt my heart sink. I knew what had been done...or not done for that matter.
I said, "What's wrong buddy?" He replied with sniffles, "The tooth fairy didn't take my tooth!"
"It must have been because of the wind buddy. Do you see how windy it is? Maybe it was the rain too?" I said.
My heart hurts thinking about how foolish I was to have forgotten.
UGH...not the best start to my morning! He has recovered of course...but I think I may be more damaged!

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
