Caden's had a loose tooth for a few weeks now and has told/shown everyone about it. We even watched during the Primary Program in Sacrament Meeting at church him sitting by the bishop and leaning over to him and talking. The next thing you see is Caden wiggling his tooth and the bishop smiling and mouthing "Wow!" Needless to say, he's been very excited about. Well, it's become so wiggly lately that both Bryan and I have been tempted to yank it out just so we'll stop having to see Caden's daily wiggle checks.
Well, I went to pick up Caden from school today and he came sprinting over to me with the biggest smile on his face. I instantly noticed his toothless grin and welcomed his cheerful embrace. He said, "Mom, I lost my tooth at school!" He had the cutest tooth necklace with his tooth safely inside and a sticker. He told me exactly how it happened. "Mrs. O'Brien was reading us a book at story time and I just touched my tooth with my tongue and it popped out! She stopped the book for the day and gave me a kleenex cause teeth bleed when they get lost. Then she put my tooth in the necklace and I got a sticker!" He then proceeded to show/tell everyone he saw on the way home. Even the crossing guard was excited to see his tooth finally gone.
He is now soundly sleeping and can't wait for the morning so he can see how much money the tooth fairy gives him. He asked before bed if the tooth fairy would give him all her money. I asked why he needed that much and he said, "To fill up my piggy bank!"
