Thankfully it was still a bottom tooth. His top one is loose now and the world will change when he loses it and grows a huge grown-up tooth in its place. He will not be that sweet-looking little boy I have loved for so long. I'm being a little dramatic and sentimental, but you know what I mean. He will be the same kid - it is just a bigger sign than usual that he is growing up fast.
The Tooth Fairy does come to our house. I feel really bad for her trying to find that little bity tooth way up high under a bunk bed pillow. The poor thing has her work cut out for her. Hubby didn't think it would work, but I suggested he just leave it on the pirate ship in his room. I thought she could find it easier and she did! He got a gold dollar coin. We did have to set him straight when he had the brilliant plan of knocking out some extra teeth to make more money. She doesn't work like that.
