Late Teethers

N will turn 7 in April and just barely got around to losing his first tooth today! He's been running a high fever for the last couple of days so we stayed home from church together and did the whole string around the tooth and doorknob routine and several other antics in attempt to get it out. It didn't work, but we had a great time spending time together and laughing.

Noah ended up pulling it out by himself with a string attached and wanted to clean it off first thing since the dentist told him that clean teeth are worth more to the tooth fairy. Funny that he didn't care to worry much about his dental hygeine until the tooth was already out of his mouth.

Many of his buddies at school have already lost 4 or more teeth. The poor guy has been waiting patiently for months for his turn to sign the "I lost a tooth" board at school. Monday will finally be his day! What does the tooth fairy leave for teeth these days?
