My little shark

A couple of weeks before Christmas, I noticed that Aidan had two permanent teeth coming in behind his baby teeth.  He actually said to me, “Mommy, I’m like a shark with two rows of teeth!” He thought it was cool, but I was weirded out! At first, only one was even the slightest bit loose so I was totally worried he’d have to get his baby teeth pulled.  Luckily, they both came out easily with only a slight assist from Adam. I, however, couldn’t be anywhere near his loose tooth because that type of thing totally creeps me out!
Anyway, Aidan had his first visit from the tooth fairy on December 30, and you’d have thought he’d pulled out a gold tooth from the $5 that was left under the pillow!  Yeah, that’s what happens when the tooth fairy is caught with only a $5 and a $20 on hand (although, we explained to Aidan that the tooth fairy pays more for the first tooth because it’s such a big deal—gotta keep those expectations in check for future teeth or we’ll go broke).  His second visit from the tooth fairy was this past Saturday night.  This time, she left a much more reasonable $1 after learning her lesson the first time.

  1. I love the picture of his teeth. How do you know the tooth fairy is a female... Remember the Molinater in Santa Clause 2? Love Grandma Ellie


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
