I said " Bug your tooth! Did you swallow it?"
Just as I said it I saw the tooth on the carpet and started laughing.
Bug looked a little shocked but started laughing too. Poor kid looked in the mirror and I thought he was going to tear up. He was definitely disappointed by his new appearance.
Then he asked "Mom why do we have to loose our teeth anyway?"
I said " Well you would look pretty silly when you get to be an adult and have teeny teeth in your mouth!"
He's over it now and used to the big gap.
Now the poor tooth fairy is broke.
She wasn't prepared and didn't have any one dollar bills on hand.
So Bug ended up with five bucks.It seems like yesterday I was waiting for those baby teeth to come in.
