sure enough, less than a week after i wrote that we were in The Final Days of Having All The Baby Teeth, odin excitedly came in our room very early in the morning to excitedly inform us that he HAD LOST HIS TOOTH!
i tried to explain what a “bittersweet” moment was while making the morning coffee but he was far more interested in pondering what tooth fairy might be bringing him.
“probably a tooth brush. maybe a coin.”
me thinks, a pretty good guess.
we both agreed that his baby tooth sure seemed fit for a baby’s mouth and not at all the proper sized tooth for his big mouth. or something like that 🙂
it wouldn’t be A Proper Day in the snowdeal home without some Added Excitement and today was no exception. at some point while getting ready for school, odin misplaced his tooth and after searching high and low many, many, many! times we were so convinced that we were never going to find the tooth that we decided to write a note to the tooth fairy explaining the situation and hoping that she would have special tooth sensing powers, find it and still leave a little something under the pillow.
so we safely put the tooth in a special little box to be tucked under his pillow. maybe – just maybe – he’ll sleep a few winks and miss the tooth fairy’s visit.
