To Tell the Tooth...

Cannon lost his first tooth on Wednesday! It (and some others) have been wiggling for quite some time. He has been patiently and not so patiently waiting for one to pop out! We were at the dentist a few months ago, and he told Cannon it wouldn't come out till he was 6. HA! We beat that by a few months!

So, it was finally wiggly enough, and Cannon let me pull it out. I LOVE TO PULL OUT TEETH! Weird, huh? I used to beg to pull out my niece's and nephew's teeth. And even some neighbor kids. I love to get the tissue around it and twist and rip and PULL! Awesome.

Cannon thought the blood was cool, so we were both happy. So, we pulled the tooth, luckily after he had brushed them! Then we called a couple of grandparents, cousins, and aunts.

Then we nestled that tooth gently into its special box, and since Cannon's such a wild

sleeper, we thought it'd be best to put it up on his headboard. Safely next to his Spider-man watch and airplane. :)

Can you believe it, that Tooth Fairy came! There were traces of her, glitter here and there where she had perched. Probably to make sure Cannon was sleeping!

He got a gold dollar and a real dollar! Score!

Now, we're working on the next one!

Oh man... I remember how exciting it is when you get that tooth fairy money. Thanks for the pinwheel idea for the strawberry patch. We'll be implementing it so we can get off the most wanted birdie killer list!

Oh, it is such a rite of passage. Can you believe that little white thing is so exciting?

Congratulations, Cannon!! What a cute toothless little mouth! So awesome that the tooth fairy left a gold dollar and a paper dollar...don't tell Jordan or he'll think he's getting ripped off. ;o)

Visits from the tooth fairy are the best! Piper, I can't believe you like to pull out teeth. I was a dental assistand for 3 years, and it still grosses me out.

How exciting for Cannon! When the tooth fairy came to our house, she also left traces of herself!! What a fun thing for the kiddos! I love his story about brushing his tongue now that the tooth is gone!!
