We all had dentist visits yesterday. Joshua had a very loose tooth that he has been resistant to having pulled. The dentist told him that the tooth needed to be out by the end of the day.
Joshua never pulled it on his own so I had to before bedtime. It was a breeze.
Joshua went to bed but was still awake an hour later. He had decided that the tooth was his favorite tooth because he had enjoyed pushing on it with his tongue. He wanted to keep the tooth but also wanted the money for the tooth. I told him that the tooth fairy
used teeth to make things and that the money was payment for the tooth.
He insisted (with tears) that we write a note to the tooth fairy requesting to keep the tooth and the money.
He didn't miss the tooth this morning since the tooth fairy had actually written back to him! She said that she needed good teeth to make things out of and since he had such good teeth, she needed to take it. She also told him he was a very good boy!
We are so proud;)
