Guess Who Came to Our House?

Yep, the Toof Fairy!

I was so ill prepared for it. Didn't even think about it when we were at the dentist a couple of weeks ago and she said "Oh he has 4 loose teeth, they are just a little wiggly" - It'll be a while right, I mean he's only 4 1/2 yrs old.

So a couple nights ago while getting him ready for bed, brushing the teeth and all I noticed he kept sticking his tongue out and then all of a sudden there was blood.

First though was, crap his bit his cheek (he's got chubby fat cheeks on the inside!)
But upon further search I realized that the tongue pushing out he was moving his bottom tooth back and forth. The tooth was just hanging there. Granted he was probably a little freaked out about it (and it probably didn't help that I did a little yelp). I was afraid he was going to swallow it. See he doesn't have the ability to reach in there and pull it out.

So I call Victoria in to show her Daniel's loose tooth to try to get him use to it. She holds him on her lap and says "ooooh let me see your loose tooth" then she reaches in there and just YANKS it out! That was it. No tears, no nothing....his tooth was out. I just looked at Tori like, I can't believe you just yoinked his tooth out! She just shrugged her shoulders like...there we go!
I secretly think she got a little pleasure out of it...ya know like any sibling she likes to inflict pain on her little brother! :)

I briefly explained the procedure to Daniel. We now get to take his tooth and put it under his pillow and then the Tooth Fairy comes while hes sleeping and leaves him something in exchange for his tooth. Needless to say he was up until 2:30 a.m. playing in bed. I think he was waiting for her! He was very excited to find an envelope with some coin in it!

Now I'm in search of a good book for him to explain the fairy! Got any suggestions?

Wow! Daniel is losing teeth already? I feel like Emily will still be getting her baby teeth at that age (feels like it is taking FOREVER). I bet he looks cute with missing teeth (he looks cute no matter what!).

Awwwwwww! He needs a little tooth pillow for his teeth! I wiggled all 6 of Faith's teeth out by making up the Wipey Game. She gets to pull out a wipey out of the wipey box everytime she lets me wiggle her tooth! I make a big deal out of it and dance around like she is doing something great! So all of her's came out w/o incident or tears! Way to go buddy!
