We’ve been planning for months for her arrival. We have the perfect pillow with a pocket to hold his tooth treasure. When Charlie was almost 11 months old, he finally popped his first tooth just in time for Thanksgiving. Now, nearly six years later, his little tooth has made its exit! He is the last in his class and the first in November to loose a tooth. His toothless grin is one of my favorite sights now.
After a long weekend of wriggles and begging from Poppy and I to just yank it out, Charlie headed off to school with his loose tooth intact. I even included an extra soft lunch in hopes that he would loose it at school and because his tooth still hurt quite a bit!
Once he got home, Poppy convinced him to let him loosen it – which he did quite a bit, but still no luck. Charlie headed home and while eating dinner, I heard a scream that can only be described as piercing and terrifying. I ran over to see Charlie with a mouth full of blood, screaming about his tooth, and with the help of a paper towel, POP! That little bugger finally made its appearance.
After sharing the good news, Charlie left a sweet little note for the Tooth Fairy.
Dear Tooth Fairy,
This is my tooth. This pillow is funny. Don’t make fun. Just laugh. I hope you like the note. Also take the note home and make a note collection.
The Tooth Fairy left what we heard was the going rate (apparently, with inflation for the first one).
Congratulations on losing your very first tooth! This is a big day and you were very brave! As a special token, I have given you some surprises!
1. A new toothbrush
2. Some spending money
3. A very special $2 bill! Keep it Safe!
Hope to see you again soon!
All my love,
The Tooth Fairy
Do you remember where you were when you lost your first tooth?
