Since it was his 5th lost tooth, the Tooth Fairy retrieved it from his pocket pillow and replaced it with a $5 bill. She also kindly let him keep the treasure chest but replaced the tooth with 5 gold stars. I won't embarrass him by telling you how long it took for him to make all those connections with the number five.
This happens to be the infamous tooth that he bashed when he was 3 years old and jammed back up into the gums for a while. Looks pretty familiar ;)
I've been waiting all these years to see if the adult tooth was damaged in any way from that injury. Guess we'll find out soon enough! And for the record, that other front tooth is pretty wiggly too, so we really may be singing that song on Christmas!
