The Tooth Fairy

We have been waiting for a while for the Tooth Fairy to arrive at our house this year, Gabriel has had a number of friends who have lost teeth and have gaps in their mouth from missing baby teeth, but Gabriel's just didnt seem to want to budge. One days a few weeks ago he mentioned that he had a "wiggly" tooth. He was very excited about it and I had a feel myself but to be honest it wasnt very wiggly at all but it was them that I noticed that his adult teeth had actually allready come through and that the baby teeth were still hanging in there. hmm???? I rang the dentist and we saw here that day she has a look and feel around and told Gabriel that he had to wiggle it every day with clean hands or she would have to pull it out herself on the next visit and the end of August. So we got to wiggling, every day, we ate lots of apples and carrots raw and anything  else crunchy but it was stubburn!.

Last night Gabriel and I were going through his sight words together after tea (dinner), and he was wiggling his tooth which was distracting us from our task, so after I gave it a good push and he wiggled it a bit more it Finally came out! he was excited and Niamh and Hezekiah buzzed around him looking at it in his hand. I explained what the protocal was and that he had to wrap it in a tissue for to fairy to pick it up and put it in her special bag and that she would leave him some money for his tooth aand that his tooth wouold be a new star in the sky tomorrow night after she planted it there. He was very excited to go to bed and was impressed with his money this morning :) I did tell the tooth Fairy that maybe (he) over payed a little but we'll work that out later....
