Well, it happened! The boy lost his first tooth! It's been wiggly for many weeks now, and I was hoping it would come out before Dan left. This has been a fun night, nonetheless!
Timothy was fiddling around with it, an easy habit he's picked up. He and I were talking and out it popped. I told him it would bleed a little, but he wasn't worried one bit. He dabbed at the vacancy a few times and within a few minutes the bleeding had stopped.
He was so excited. We read The Tooth Book by Dr. Seuss tonight. Actually, he read it to us (his 3 stuffed friends, Samantha, and me). He was so wired about losing his tooth he couldn't get to sleep! It was hysterical.
Samantha wanted to make sure I knew she lost her tooth as well.
