Luke's First Lost Tooth

Luke has lost his first tooth! He was so excited. The tooth was really wiggly, and he's been playing with it all week. We read a book tonight called, "My Loose Tooth," and Luke was ready to give it a try--pulling it out, that is.



It didn't take long. I tried tying some floss around it and giving it a yank, but Luke has a really small mouth, like his Grandpa Warren. So I couldn't get the floss in there, and I kept getting slobbered on. Finally, I just used a kleenex and pulled it out. It bled for a bit, but stopped pretty quickly. Luke was very brave. And he's thrilled to have a new hole in his head!



Luke can't wait for the tooth fairy! The tooth fairy is going to bring him a golden dollar coin for his tooth. I'm sure our little miser is already up there in his bed counting his money!
