This morning Zack lost his first tooth while eating an apple. It had been loose for a few weeks. He was really excited and wanted to call the dentist, who we visited last week for a cleaning. Zack had asked the hygienist to pull it out at the visit, but she said it wasn't loose enough. She told him to eat apples and carrots and it would come out. He was so excited that she was right.
I immediately called my mom when Zack first told me his tooth was loose. I had seen a tooth fairy pillow on www.pinterest.com that I knew would be perfect, http://thelongthread.com/?p=7370. My mom texted me the next day that the pillow was finished. Zack couldn't wait to use the pillow. We have been hauling it back and forth from the lake just waiting for the tooth to come out.
Addie also has a mysteriously loose tooth that she just loves to talk about and show off. She keeps telling me that she needs grandma to make her a pillow before she swallows her tooth. She isn't about to be outdone by her big brother.
Zack seems to think that the tooth fairy will bring $20 tonight. Should be interesting in the morning!
On a side note...Zack brought home an all about me booklet today. For the question what do you want to be when you grow up, he answered LIBRARIAN! I about died. He is the most loud, talkative, and full of energy kid you'll ever meet. He did have library today though, so I'm sure that played into it. Last year he went from wanting to be a construction worker to a Pokemon Trainer to a postal worker. Should be interesting when he turns 18.
