Finished by the Skin of My Teeth

Ms M and I have been talking about getting her tooth fairy pillow made because any day now her teeth were going to start wiggling. But there has always been so much to do that we just never got around to getting fabric and a design finished.

Well, lo, one of Ms M’s teeth got wiggly this week. Eeek! We had better get rocking on that pillow. Ms M and I had already discussed that she wanted a dinosaur tooth pillow. Earlier she had picked out one shaped like a brachiosaurus. But, unlike N who will make up his mind and keep it that way for years, Ms M’s ideas are much more like the wind. They flit about here and there, and you never know where they will end up.

So on the way to the fabric store the conversation went like this:

Me: M what kind of tooth pillow do you want?


Me: (thanking that the car windows didn’t blow out due to the volume of Ms M’s response) What kind of dinosaur do you want?

M: A parasaurolophus!

Me: (groaning internally, you just had to ask didn’t you! You couldn’t have lead with “do you want a brachiosaurus?” No, of course not, you had to lead with an open ended question). Ok. What color did you want it?

M: Um……… Red and green

Me: (Mentally slapping head. It’s going to look like Christmas!) Ok, well lets see what we can find when we get to the fabric store.

So Ms M and I hunt around and acutally find a red and green fabric combination that would work without looking Christmas-y. And then we find the PERFECT fabric. A teal, yellow, and green polka dot that SCREAMS dinosaur to both of us. But it wasn’t going to work with either the red or green that had already selected.  But then we found a deep blue sorta wood grain that was perfect. So off to check out we went and an hour or two later Ms. M had her tooth pillow.

And although we got it done before Ms M lost her tooth. It was all for naught. Because Ms M LOST her tooth. I mean really lost it. She doesn’t know when or where it came out. Oh well there’s always the 2nd tooth!
