Is what I heard coming up the stairs a few minutes ago. Yes, we officially have our first loose tooth!
Him: "Mommy, Mommy, I have a loose tooth!"
Me: "You do? Lemme see."
Him: *opening mouth and placing forefinger on tooth to wiggle back and forth "Ight ere ooo ooo eee iiii?"
Me: "Well, move your finger and let me look."
Him: *moves finger* "Do you see it?
Me: "I can't look when your talking..."
Him: "Oh" and opens mouth.
I gingerly placed my finger on the tooth he indicated and sure enough, it moves...I wonder what he did...
Me: "What'd you do to make that happen?"
Him: "I just opened my mouth and bit my tooth and bang it was loose"
Me: "Oh really..? You weren't messing around?"
Him: "Nope, I was eating my cheese."
Me: "Welp, it looks like you're going to lose your first tooth."
Him: *jumping up and down & wiggling with excitement "Wow, it's my final first loose tooth!' (he made a similar statement about his arm - "It's my final first broken arm")
Him: "Why is my tooth loose?"
Me: "Because your baby teeth will fall out and you'll get grown up teeth."
Him: "Do I hafta keep my mouth open so the Tooth Fairy can come get it?"
Me: ??? "No, it'll fall out on it's own, then we'll put it up, and that night we'll stick it under your pillow for the Tooth Fairy."
Him: "Why can't we just go to the dentist and have him pull it out?"
Me: "Nah, I don't think we need a dentist, it'll come out by itself."
And off he went to watch some more Diego.
So, we are now awaiting the big moment - when it actually comes out. I've told him to leave it be, it'll work itself out, but somehow I just don't see that happening....
Gotta go to work!
See ya laterzzzzzzzz!
