Remember a couple of weeks ago I posted about Adam's wacky mouth? Well - this is what it looked like Sunday night. You can see the two middle permanent teeth growing in behind the baby teeth. The tooth on the left was super loose - it could flip almost down flat.
Adam had really been stressing out about what it would feel like and was super worried that it would hurt when his tooth came out. He had talked to every kid he knew that had lost a tooth and asked if it hurt and what the best way is to get his tooth out. He finally decided that he was ready for it to go. Someone had told him about tying a string to the tooth and then to the doorknob and he had been talking about that for about a week, and he really wanted to give it a try. So, Scott got out the dental floss and tied it to his tooth...
...and then to the door knob.
and then he slammed the door.
Adam started jumping around and looking for his tooth with a big grin on his face! He was so excited!! Can you see the tooth in the picture above? No? That's because it didn't come out! The picture is actually pretty good - you can see the end of the string flying out of his mouth, but the knot slipped right off his tooth. Adam was pretty disappointed.
He decided he didn't want to try that again, so Scott got some toilet paper and just pulled the tooth right out.
And a funny looking gap...
One of Scott's employees gave Adam this cute little tooth box for him to keep his teeth safe until the tooth fairy comes.
The tooth fairy did in fact come. She left Adam $3, and a little note. Here's what the note said: "Dear Adam, Thanks for the tooth! You were very brave! Especially when you tried the door trick. Most kids are too scared to try that. I'll be back for the next tooth, it's looking loose! Take care of them! Love, The Tooth Fairy"
Adam's been very excited to show everyone his missing tooth. He told his teacher at preschool, and was super excited to tell all his classmates at circle time. It's crazy to me how fast he is suddenly growing up!
