Back again..

Maybe I'll do better this time!

Well last night Hunter lost his second tooth. He was so incredibly excited about having lost a tooth and the prospect of the tooth fairy visiting and getting MORE MONEY that he could barely get his pajamas on. Seriously. He was half dressed giggling around his room talking about money and adding up what money he already has and speculating over how much he would have depending on how much the tooth fairy brought him.

Finally he got dressed and we did our bedtime routine and the boys all went to bed. Well at 11 p.m. I realized that I almost forgot to tooth fairy. I had told Hunter that I needed to make him a tooth fairy pillow before he went to bed and he sounded really excited about that idea, so I decided to whip him one up. So I cut a couple squares, sewed a pocket on, serged them together on 3 sides, stuffed them and serged it closed. Super simple.

Then I started hunting the house over for some cash.. all I could find were a couple of ones and a ten. Well.. last time the tooth fairy brought him $4 he told me and I knew he'd be disappointed if I only left $2 or $3. So I went ahead with the ten... yes, I've set the bar high now and all future tooth fairy visits will be a disappointment if she doesn't leave $10 but I'll cross that bridge when it happens.

Well this morning at 5 a.m. I was awoken by a very excited boy with his tooth fairy pillow and $10. I told him, at 5 a.m., that I made the pillow but he didn't believe me. Then he went to sleep in my bed, with his head on the tooth fairy pillow. At some time between 5 a.m. and when we finally got up he asked me why it was so small, he was trying to sleep on it silly kid!!

So anyway this morning he was telling me that he "didn't think I made it because of the airplanes on the fabric" but I told him I have the fabric downstairs and I can show it to him if he doesn't believe me! How dare that darn tooth fairy take credit for something *I* made!!

Well I was going to post pictures but I can't find my phone/camera. So if anyone is reading this give me a call so I can find my phone!!

Recently, I also took my son to some of our family dentists in Charleston, SC area). Because he lost almost of his front teeth, we have to take him there to know if he's okay. Thank God that what happened to him is normal and the dentist assured him that he will have a perfect set of teeth again.
