This was a big weekend in our house. Timmy, who has been excitedly waiting for the arrival, was finally visited by the Tooth Fairy. Saturday night he squealed and then ran into the living room, proudly showing a new gap toothed smile.
Unfortunately, he became confused and excited when the tooth fell out. Not knowing what to do with the tooth in his hand, he reasoned that the safest bet was to swallow the tooth. When we tried to decipher what happened to the tooth, he carefully explained that it was staying with his body so that a new tooth would grow. I have no plans to launch a tooth recovery mission.
With his new gap tooth smile, he carefully wrote a note to the Tooth Fairy explaining that he lost his booth but then ate it. We tucked the note into the heart pillow pocket and hoped for the best. Thankfully the Tooth Fairy was understanding and decided to leave Timmy a few treats to celebrate the milestone.
