Oh WOW! Congratulations on the loss of your first tooth! I have been keeping my eye on you for the past 3 weeks, from the very first time you felt it wiggle, and waiting ever so patiently for it to work its way loose. I know that you had a little bit of help from your Mommy in getting it to come out, but that’s ok. You were both very brave! I watched the whole thing happen from my magic crystal ball up in the town of Babytooth in the secret garden of Fairyland.
My favorite part about watching a child lose his or her first tooth is the new, big, bold and beautiful smile they display immediately after it falls out. Your new smile is outstanding! Your Mommy sent me this picture, which I will hang on my “Memories” Bulletin Board. [I'm not into uploading face on photos of my son..sorry]
Keep looking after your teeth very well, dear Nathan. Once your adult teeth come in, they are the last set of teeth you will ever have. You must brush and floss and swish with mouthwash every day, ok?
I absolutely look forward to looking into my crystal ball and seeing the rest of your baby teeth fall out. It is such a pleasure rewarding you with this $5.50 for your first tooth. It is in splendid condition. The first tooth is always the most special, indeed.
Enjoy your new smile, Nathan. It will just keep changing and getting better from now on!
With lots of love,
The Tooth Fairy
On a personal note: I can not believe I actually participated in extracting a dangling tooth without passing out. If this confuses you, shame on you for not reading every post I write and it's now your job to go back a few and find out what the heck I'm talking about. I feel like I've done some right of passage thing and now I really get to have the title: MOMMY. I did SO great, and so did Thanan. He wanted me to tug it out with pliers (it was just too small to grip with my fingers). And man, oh man, did we ever celebrate!! I don't think I've ever heard Thanan be more excited about anything. Ever. Great afternoon!
