Snaggle Tooth Boy

Steven lost his front tooth the other night. It had been hanging by a thread for some time, so we knew it would be any day. His dad and sister cheered him on in the bathroom as he snatched it out. I left the room immediately upon entering to see what all the hoopla was about. I just couldn't stomach it! Amanda Lily was cheering "go Steven go, go Steven go" George said it only took 3 tugs for it to come out. Steven came downstairs to show me and exclaimed "Mommy, tonight was the night" he was so excited. I think he was mostly excited about the tooth fairy coming. She always sprinkles confetti "fairy dust" in his room and that really gets him excited. She also leaves allot more $$$ for the front teeth. I tell you, she must have won the lottery since I was a kid, because I was lucky to get $.25 for each tooth. Anyways, if any of you happen to see my son, he is so proud of his lost tooth, so be prepared to see a gummy smile!!

We are hoping he will lose the other in time for Christmas so that he can sing the infamous "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" We will see.
Also, the song in the background is my current favorite. I thought you Mom's would appreciate it. It is by the artist Plumb. If you girls have a minute to listen, do. It will strike a chord with you all I am sure. (:

So what does the tooth fairy pay these days? I guess I have a while before I need to know that, but the confetti sure is a cool idea. I'll have to remember that.
