Toothy Kid Photo Contest!!!

That's right! We're having a contest!!!!

One of the things I love most about this whole tooth fairy business is looking at photos of kids who have just lost a tooth. Why? Because every kid's expression is different! Some are ecstatic, because they're super excited that the Tooth Fairy is on her way. But other kids (like Ethan, who is pictured on the right sidebar), are still a bit overwhelmed over the whole tooth loss experience, when their mom or dad snap their photo. 

I want to fill this blog with more of these fun photos, which is why I've come up with the Toothy Kid Photo Contest!!! 

*Winners: The Tooth Fairy and I will pick three winning photos -- for the three kids wearing the the funniest, happiest, and grumpiest expressions when mom or dad said, "CHEESE!"

*Prizes: The child that the Tooth Fairy and I deem to be the most endearing is going to get an autographed copy of my book You Think It's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy?. The other two chosen children will receive baseball caps emblazoned with my book cover. As well, all three children will receive a personalized note from the Tooth Fairy. ("That," she just smirked, "is the best part!" HA!)

So, here are the rules:

1) Email me your photo/photos at Sheri(at) by April 15, 2009. Send small files, please. Or you may send me an email directing me to your blog or website link, if the photo is displayed there.

2) Be sure to provide the name and age of the child pictured. Also include a few sentences on his or her tooth-losing experience.

3) By sending me your photo, you give me the right to post your child's photo here on my blog. No personal identifying information will be posted with the photo, other than your child's name.

I can't wait to see the faces and announce the winners!!

So don't forget the deadline: April 15, 2009!!

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog and letting me know about this contest. I will be on the lookout for a toothless little one. My first thought was my 1 year old niece....but she's toothless because none have come in yet. :) Right now I can't even think of anyone I know that is at that stage.

    I am a Dental Assistant, so I am really excited about your blog. Surely will be visiting here often. :)
