Paging the toothfairy!


Several weeks ago Dave told me that Erik had his first loose tooth. Now, at the age of 6 3/4 years, it's been a long time coming, but then Erik didn't get his first tooth until he was 10.5 months old.

I'm really squeamish about teeth (having had some traumatic experiences with my own over the years) and so I didn't really encourage Erik to share all his tooth wiggly stories with me (especially as he seemed determined to share them over the dinner table)... But I was aware that as time passed the tooth was working its way out because Erik preferred soft foods to hard foods, and was attempting to eat apples and hard pizza crusts with his molars :D...

So this morning he shyly comes up to me and tells me to look at his hand and there is the tiniest little white tooth! His cheeky smile now sports a large gap right in front on the lower gum...

And he informed me that the going rate with toothfairies these days is $2...

I have a photo, but I'm going to have to add it later because Blogger is play up :(...
