Moments after my 6 year olds tooth fell out biting into a pear
Much excitement !!
Which lead to the question that night............
How do you present the ' first tooth ' to the tooth fairy when you are a boy ?
I have had lots of experience with my daughter , she has a special pink fairy door on the wall complete with gold key that the fairy enters at night takes the tooth ,
while leaving a magical trail of fairy glitter dust & a gold coin.
Once she came a night late ( oh dear ) & left a little note explaining what a extra busy night she had & couldnt collect all the teeth before morning.
Was he going to be expecting a door too ?
As this tooth had fallen out a bit sooner then I thought , I wasnt prepared.
Then I remembered purchasing this book from the ABC Store 6 months ago.
We read together ' Why do our teeth fall out ? '
( see his little tooth sitting on the book )
It basically explains the life of a tooth
( makes a great reader for young learners )
The last page even shows how to make a Tooth fairy basket !
Which was not required ..........
Boys are so much easier ( at times )
He simply wanted to leave it on his new desk in his bedroom.
Not under the pillow , he said " the tooth fairy wont be able to find it there "
He is very practical !
He went to sleep & woke up to a generous $5 in gold coins.
One very happy little boy.
Do you have any stories to share , I would love to hear them.....
