Milestones: Tooth Fairy

At Q's regular check up in early December, it was determined that Q did indeed have an adult tooth coming in. (Finally!) Unfortunately, it had found a spot behind the other teeth and was wedging up out of alignment with the other teeth. While the baby tooth was wiggly, the dentist wanted to pull it (assuming it didn't fall out in the meantime) so that the adult tooth had room to move into its appropriate spot as it was growing in.

Sitting in the dentist's office yesterday, Q asked me, "Is the Tooth Fairy real?"


He didn't quite believe me, so he wrote a note to the Tooth Fairy.

He taped it to the back of the baggie with the baby tooth. I think he was planning to hide it where only the Tooth Fairy could find it, but luckily, he forgot and left it on the table.

Note the stamp.

This morning he found her response in an envelope, along with a snowflake, and a dollar bill...

After showing Noodle, I heard him in the hallway: "This is awesome!"
