Today, he lost the first one! And when I say 'lost', I mean I got tired of waiting and pulled it out.
While we were out running errands today, I told him that the new tooth was waiting for the parking spot and the old tooth needed to leave. I suggested that he let Daniel pull it out. While I was driving home, I heard him in the backseat talking to his tooth, "When we get home, I'm going to brush you and then Daniel is going to pull you out." ha!
He was a good sport and as soon as he had brushed his teeth, he let Daniel try to pull it out.
Daniel didn't understand that he needed to grab it and pull up so he just kept pushing it forward and making it bleed. He was relieved of his duties.
A new tactic.
This was when I took matters into my own hands, so to speak.Success!
It's gross and beautiful--all at the same time.
The boys have been sleeping together in Daniel's bed since we got home from vacation (why am I buying a third bed?) but tonight Andrew told me that he is going to sleep in his own bed so the Tooth Fairy won't wake up Daniel. I'm pretty sure that's his way of making sure that Daniel doesn't get his money.
Andrew said he hopes that the Tooth Fairy brings him a tiny treasure box with a magical white gem inside of it. Instead, he's getting 4 quarters from the bottom of her purse. The Tooth Fairy is not always as prepared as she should be.
