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!
