Somehow this boy has grown up on me when I wasn’t looking. He lost his first tooth today. The past few days he has been willing to let Neal try to pry it out via floss tugs or plier pulls. But after all that it was pretty uneventful when it came down to it.
He was playing with Legos and said it felt funny. He said that he twisted it all the way around but stayed in his mouth. I said that if he could twist it all the way around he could definitely yank it out and he did. He said it was awesome.
Neal left for a work trip today and will be gone till Thursday and I was caught without anything smaller than a $20 bill so I convinced him to wait until dad got home so he could show him his tooth.
Then he lost it. The tooth. Again.
We can’t find it.
So in the meantime he wants to communicate with the tooth fairy and he wrote this note:
Two questions for all of you: How would you answer his question? and What is the going rate nowadays anyway? I honestly don’t remember how much I got as a kid, at least remember they were bills so at least $1.
