Growing Up...

So our little boy is growing up...Zachery lost his first tooth a couple weeks ago. It was pretty traumatic for him. Not because he was upset at losing a part of himself. He just does not do pain AT ALL. It took as about 5 hours to get it out, taking half hour intervals between attempts. Every time we would try and pull it, he would push our hands away and then scream for about 10 minutes. The only reason he would let us keep trying is he knew the tooth fairy would bring him a surprise. So after getting a little frustrated, I held on and yanked the dang thing out. And then after screaming for another 10 minutes, Zachery was quite happy to have it done with, and couldn't wait to see what the tooth fairy brought him. $5!!! What a very generous tooth fairy! (daddy) ..."she" better get a raise if she expects to keep that up with as many teeth pulling adventures we will be going through!

Like I said before... It's "tooth fairies" like yours that drive the rates up for all us other "tooth fairies" and makes us want to tell our kids the truth so we don't go broke. The going rate right now is $1.00 per tooth. Just tell him that the first one out was worth more. ;) -Kate
