He did it!
He wiggled it,
and jiggled it
until it was barely hanging on and turning a slightly bluish-gray color,and then fiiinally he let Daddy pull it out in return for a remote control car and boat.
I thought that tooth was going to hang on forever so I was completely not prepared the evening it came out. I had to whip up a pillow right before bedtime.
I had found a Tooth Fairy pillow that I loved on Etsy and then realized I could make the same one (and personalize it) for about $20 less. I'm going to make Brooklyn and August their own to match and I won't be scrambling at the last minute again. (Yes, I realize August has yet to grow any actual teeth.)
Porter was so excited to put his tooth in the little pocket when he went to bed.
Then I couldn't remember if the Tooth Fairy takes the tooth or leaves it in the pocket with the money. (Takes it.) I still need to peruse Etsy to find something cute to keep the teeth in as to not get them mixed up with the others kids'. (The horror.)I did, however, remember this very cute idea that someone told me about before I had kids.
The Tooth Fairy leaves glitter when she lands on the windowsill!
Nate and I had to consult Facebook when we discovered we had no idea what the going rate was for teeth these days. Some people said no less than $5 for the first tooth, some said $1, some said whatever the Tooth Fairy could find in her purse that day.
When Porter woke up in the morning he found 2 dollars, 2 quarters, 2 dimes, 2 nickles, and two pennies in the pocket. Of course Nate has to repay on the bribe too!
