When I was little I vividly remember losing my first tooth. I was in the mall with my Dad and I was begging him for a Cinnabon. He caved in and I savored every bite – until one was unusually crunchy. Much to my horror I realized that I swallowed my tooth!! Would the tooth fairy even come?!
Well Frankie is definitely my son. He’s been letting his first loose tooth hold on by a string – and won’t let anyone touch it (not even his mom!) I think he was traumatized when Uncle Billy said he wanted to yank it out. Yesterday morning I told him to relax and not think about it, and bought him an irresistible bacon egg and cheese sandwich from our local delicatessen.
And surprise! Frankie ate his tooth!! And yes, the tooth fairy still came!
