Pierce has had a loose tooth for months. I never knew a loose tooth could drag on so long. He waited and waited and waited. He wiggled and ate apples and pulled. The dentist even said (a couple of weeks ago) "Surely this will fall out tonight!" But it hung on.
Finally, though, one day last week Pierce jumped off the bus with excitement. The tooth had fallen out. I got out the little tooth fairy pillow I made a couple of years ago just for this momentous occasion.
Luckily, the tooth fairy did remember to come visit Pierce that night. I was a little worried she might forget. I heard she's been a little overtaxed lately. I think the pillow I made was a beacon reminder to her.
Do you remember losing your first tooth, readers?
