Then a door slam.
But two failed attempts and one brave kid later, he relented to just having me pull it.
Inspector Alli taking a closer look at the newly extracted tooth.
There it is! Nice work Ian!
Alli inspecting Avery's mouth for loose teeth.
Avery's take-away from all this was "when I get big, my daddy will cut out my teeth too."
Ian, great job on this one. Very brave to go through all those attempts. That tooth was stubborn, bending forward whenever the string pulled on it.
The second part of losing a tooth is exciting too. The visit from the tooth fairy! Even though he'll tell you the tooth fairy isn't real, it's still fun to pretend.
When he woke up the next morning, he found something under his pillow, but it fell down the crack between the mattress and the bed frame before he could get it. I pulled it out and called him back.
Nice buddy! Later we'd discuss what the Tooth Fairy might do to the with all those teeth, plus the economics of giving money for all those teeth. Ian was randomly speculating about many things. Like, perhaps the Tooth Fairy plants the teeth and they grow into a coin tree.
Ah, but Ian, you got a bill.
Well maybe she trades the coins for bills.
That then evolved into discussions about whether the coins were specific to any particular country or if the people she traded the coins to gave her money to each land. It was an interesting though experiment.
And now he's thinking he might have a third one that's loose. We'll see how long it is until the next post like this.
And for myself, Tooth P came out first. This one was Tooth O.
