Big moment at our place tonight!! Erik lost his FIRST tooth! We came home from Vegas, and the kids were brushing their teeth and his mouth was full of blood afterwards. We told him his tooth was ready to come out today! :-) He was a little scared, I won't sugar coat it, and he thought we were going to hurt him by helping him.....BUT, we wet down a wash cloth to help with the blood, and Josh wiggled it around a bit, and Erik started to cry (you know, that cry when you THINK something is going to hurt out of fear, but it really doesn't). Little did Erik know, that Josh had already pulled the tooth, and then it was just laughs after that!
The toothfairy had to run to buy milk at 11:00PM just to break a $100. All worth it though, the first one is ALWAYS worth a little more (to make up for the fear tears).
We were happy to be able to share this experience with him. He was pretty proud, can't you tell by the look on his face?
