Yesterday, while sitting on the couch playing Nintendo DS , NHL told me that his tooth hurt. Hmmm. . . . this was something he has never said before. Of course, I asked him to come over to show me what was bothering him. He said that two of his teeth hurt. Nothing was visibly wrong, so I went further. Since NHL is almost 5 1/2 now I knew that it could be an adult tooth pushing up on one of his baby teeth.
Sure enough, when I touched the one tooth it seemed to wiggle ever so slightly. When I told NHL the news he jumped up and down and was so excited. When I looked a little closer I was not sure if I saw the new tooth moving in behind the baby tooth. I will keep an eye on it in case we need to make a dentist appointment to have it checked or pulled. JL had to have all but two of his teeth pulled (same for my brother), so they may not loosen easily.Thanks to the new developments, we need to figure out what we are going to do when he does have a tooth come out.
So I ask you: What do you do, are you a Tooth Fairy Family? Please tell me what the Tooth Fairy does in your house, or what you do instead of the Tooth Fairy.
Thanks so much for your ideas, I have a feeling I may be needing them sooner rather than later.
