Complete with a black eye? (using some of my late grandmother's buttons from her button jar..)
Inspired by this book?
I thought it deserved another post in celebration.. b/c we have a loose tooth in the house! I was starting to wonder when it would finally happen, since many of his KG classmates last year had lost several teeth already. Yet when he walked up to me in the kitchen and quietly said, "Mom, I didn't tell you when we were upstairs.. but.. I have a loose tooth," I kind of felt emotional. Much the same as when I discovered he had cut his first tooth at 6 mo. old. On Easter Sunday. I remember it vividly. Yay!..wait..what's that lump in my throat? Sniff, sniff.
Don't get me wrong, I was super excited for him, it's a big milestone after all, and I gave him a kiss.. but as soon as I kissed him, I had the unexpected urge to turn around and cry a little. Very soon he'll have big, giant slightly-too-big-for-his-face-big-boy-teeth, meaning he's officially a "big boy". Time just flies by so fast, and this whole motherhood thing is full of one bittersweet moment after another it seems... Mixed with lots of laugh out loud moments of course.
I had to laugh when I found this photo.. I had forgotten about his note that he wrote to stick in its mouth asking for WAY too much tooth fairy money. He was asking me the other day where the paper was that he put in the monster's mouth.. and I had forgotten all about that!
He told me tonight when I was reading to him that he wanted to use the monster for all of his teeth that he loses. He loves it. *swoon* We'll see if he still wants to use the monster when he finds out it doesn't puke $100 bills. haha
If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and wipe a tear from the corner of my eye.. I might just be a blubbering mess when the tooth actually falls OUT! ;)
Sweet story, Kelli! I think your monster, er I mean, tooth fairy is charming! Congrats on being the mother of a "big boy now". Thanks for sharing! I especially enjoyed the note. Not only because of the '2 $100', but because of the printing style. I remember those days!
Include some Monopoly money. They have $100 bills (the only kind I can afford to keep around). Just wait till your first one graduates COLLEGE! Oh my, they grow up FAST!!!! He lost a tooth while waiting in line to get into a Chinese buffet restaurant. It didn't slow his appetite down any.
I love the subtitle of that book. I'd have bought it just for that.
G still has yet to lose a tooth as well, and she is starting to be distressed about it. As the whole loose teeth and gapey smiles thing kind of skeeves me out, I am totally fine with her keeping the baby teeth for forever. The older two have learned to not even tell me they lost a tooth at this point.
Hope the TF is good to him - but probably she won't live up to those expectations!
