Tooth Today, Gone Tomorrow

Lots of exciting things happened to Ben this week. Lots of birthday recognition and presents and then Easter too. Then to top it off, the tooth that has been dangling in his mouth for the last few weeks finally came out, just as he was walking off the bus on Tuesday. This is only his third baby tooth to come out, and it was one of the top front teeth. Most kids his age have had those adult teeth in for a while now. But he doesn't care...because he is so excited!!!

Here is the snaggletooth a few days before it came out.

Here is his new look... (desperately in need of a new haircut which he just got)

And here is just about the cutest letter ever to the tooth fairy. My kids have gotten in the habit of leaving the tooth fairy notes and love when he/she writes back. On top of the letter is the little pillow that we got as a gift when Jack was born! There is a little pocket to put the tooth in. The tooth fairy takes the tooth and leaves the loot. Ben got $3 for his tooth.
