Innocence lost

Nick has been desperate to lose a tooth for over a year. He finally lost his first one last week, almost a full year later than Nathaniel lost his first.

I’d been imploring him to yank it out for a month, because it’s been loose for a long time. So long, in fact, that the permanent tooth has almost completely already come in … behind the baby tooth.

Braces, anyone? The day after he lost it, we were driving home from school when, out of the blue:

Nick: “Mommy. We all know it’s impossible for someone to sprout wings and fly, so obviously I don’t believe in the tooth fairy. How about you and Daddy just give me some money for this tooth?”

Me: [wryly] "Sounds good."

ha! But what a relief! The "Tooth Fairy" in our house ALWAYS forgets to exchange the tooth for money and my younger children get so confused when they wake up in the morning and see that their tooth still there.

Congrats to your big boy, losing a first tooth is so exciting when your little.

Happy Thursday :)

:( That's so sad. Congrats on the tooth! Joshua is still waiting. Aria has already lost three.

Jackson is dying to lose a tooth. He's so jealous of his friends. Are you sad about the non-existence of the tooth fairy?

Over Christmas when it was loose, he said, "I should stop drinking milk so all my teeth get loose!"

Congrats on loosing the tooth! Don't worry about the tooth coming in behind the baby one. Same thing happened to my daughter and BOTH of her teeth ended up aligning themselves.

Smart kid!
Our experience with the tooth fairy is that she was a total slacker who always forgot to bring money anyway. If she is anything like me, her brain shuts off after four in the afternoon, so I always tried to cut her a little slack.
Your little fella sure is a cutie!
