On March 8th, we had a major milestone in our house – my six year old lost his first tooth!
It had been wiggly for quite a while and I had given it a few gentle tugs in the week leading up to it coming out, but the tooth just wasn’t ready. The day it came out, he was out at a birthday party & when he got back, the tooth was literally hanging out of his mouth. Because I was afraid he’s swallow it in his sleep, I gentle pulled it out for him.It was so teeny, that we put the tooth in a Ziploc bag so that the tooth fairy could find it easily.
See how the one in back was already coming through? It was definitely time for the baby tooth to go.
As for the tooth fairy, she brought him a crisp $5 bill, which she’s been holding on to for a few weeks because she was afraid the tooth would fall out and she’d be left unprepared. For each tooth after this he will get $1, but the first one is a big deal, so my kids get a little more for their first.
So tell me, how much does the tooth fairy leave at your house?
