We were shopping at Giant today when I noticed a gap between 2 of Jovan’s lower teeth..
Pointed it out to hubby but we both couldn’t think of a good reason why the teeth would move apart from each other.. We just reminded him to brush his teeth more thoroughly every day..
When we got home, Jovan came excitedly to tell me that one of his teeth was loose!
I got a little excited and asked him to show me his loose tooth..
Can you see the gap between 2 of his lower teeth? The one on the right (our view) was the loose tooth.. He shook it a little to show me then said he’s very excited about the loose tooth.. I guess he has seen many of his peers who had lost a tooth or two and was expecting his milk teeth to start dropping too!
On our way to dinner, he mentioned his loose milk tooth again so I told him to be careful when taking his meals so he wouldn’t swallow his own tooth.. I then told him to keep his tooth if it dropped so he could put it under his pillow.. The tooth fairy would then reward him with some money.. He mentioned about sharing the money with Jocelle (sweet, right?) but I told him the amount he would receive would depend on how clean his tooth was..
Then when I mentioned that the tooth fairy would collect his tooth, he unexpectedly told us he didn’t want the money and that he wanted to keep his baby tooth himself! I was surprised that he was not interested in the reward! Hee..
Well, we’ll see if he changes his mind when his milk tooth drops..
