Stevie Lost His First Tooth!

He has had a loose tooth for about a week. Today it is barely hanging on. Real calm, I told him that my mom used to take a long piece of floss, tie it in a loop, put it around and under the tooth, then pull the strings to tie them tight and it would pop off the tooth. I didn't ask him if he wanted to do it, I just told him about it then changed the subject.

About a minute later he said "ok I want to do it!" I said ok and took him into the bathroom. I got the loop around the tooth but had trouble getting it under the tooth. Steve came in and took one of those plastic flossers and started helping me get the thread under it. Stevie stayed calm, even with four hands in his mouth now. The floss started to swell and now it was like 50 threads. Finally it was under and I couldn't do it. I handed it to Steve and he quickly jerked it out.

Stevie had a look of shock on his face, and looked like he didn't know if he was going to cry! I started clapping and screaming YAY it's out! and he ran to the mirror to look. Even through all the blood, he was pretty excited! The tooth fairy came that night and he got a whopping $5 bill.
