Mason’s top two front teeth and two other bottom teeth have been loose for weeks. Despite our urging, he’s been avoiding wiggling the front teeth because he “needs” them for his favorite veggie, corn on the cob.
On our way home from dinner the other night, Mason suddenly yelled, “My tooth came out!”
We all smiled, and laughed, congratulating him while Frank grabbed the box of tissues to hold off the small bit of blood that was coming out. Mason had been drinking out of a plastic cup with a hard plastic straw. When we hit a small bump, the straw hit his tooth and, voila! It was out. The tooth fairy brought him two whole dollars!!! 😉
This week’s Masonism:
“When I bumped my tooth with the straw, my tooth was swimming in my mouth. At least my tongue caught it!”
