Sunday morning NHL was eating breakfast on the couch. TechyDad was getting ready to take him for his Hebrew lesson. Suddenly, I heard NHL yell that he lost his tooth. I went into the room and he was laughing and way too calm. I honestly did not believe that a tooth had been lost.
Why? A little history. Prior to this, NHL had needed assistance from the dentist to get his teeth out. In fact, the last time the teeth did not loosen up a lot and he was afraid of them coming out. When we noticed that he had 3-4 wiggly teeth, he was excited. We would often find him with his hands in his mouth wiggling them to get them out. Suddenly he was interested in a visit from the Tooth Fairy.
So on Sunday I watched as he got up off the couch to search for something. I asked what he was looking for. Again, he told me his tooth. So I asked NHL to open his mouth and show me.
Oh my goodness! Not only did NHL have a tooth missing, it was different than the one I was expecting to come out first. So the two of us looked on the couch and we quickly found it. While he was showing the tooth to JSL and TechyDad, I went to locate the Tooth Fairy pillow.
Last night the Tooth Fairy came to our house. She left NHL a new book, dollar coin, and a note. Now we wait and see when the next visit will be. My guess it will be sooner rather than later.
What did you get from the Tooth Fairy as a child and what do your children get these days? Inquiring minds would love to know.
