Our first lost tooth!

Check out this guy:

I put the boys to bed around 8:30 tonight, and around 9:15 Josh came into my room and said, "Mommy, it feels like something's wrong with my tooth." I looked, and it was twisted around backward and hanging almost upside down. I showed him in the mirror, and he was giddy with excitement. I tried pulling it but could barely even get to his bottom teeth because he couldn't stop grinning from ear to ear at the prospect of his tooth coming out. Finally, daddy came along and got it out in one swift yank. No blood, no tears . . . a perfect first baby tooth extraction. After calling Aunt Nae, Gaga, and Granddad (sorry, you weren't home, Grandma) and running around the house like he'd won a million dollar lottery, he finally went back to bed. He said he may not be able to sleep because he's too excited about the tooth fairy. I said, "Well, if she comes and you're awake, she may have to leave because she only buys lost teeth from children who are asleep." He said, "Mommy, you're the tooth fairy, and you can just pretend I'm asleep." Smart kid.

Hey I followed you over from Minivan mom's blog. Great comments btw.

That first tooth is so amazing! Sometime the toothfairy at our house forgets. The kids always look at me and role their eyes. They're smart like that too lol.
