The Gap Widens

I just looked in Big Kid's mouth--and he's missing another tooth. The other bottom center one.

Um, what the hell? So he's just swallowing teeth left and right, not even noticing they're gone? Will there ever be an actual tooth involved in these Tooth Fairy transactions?

Maybe his THIRD loose tooth will end up in the "first tooth" box if we're lucky. This isn't how it's supposed to work.

Okay, I have a totally warped mind because I wonder when these teeth are coming out as far as leaving the body after he swallows them. Will the two of the teeth team up and bite him for swallowing them? Yeah...lay off the cough medicine, I know.

I think the tooth fairy needs to pay out!

Did he ever realize that he had lost another tooth?

Maybe you need to keep a close watch on the rest of his teeth and the next time one of them is even slightly loose, rip that sucker out so you can actually have a tooth for the tooth fairy (and the box).

Maybe the tooth fairy needs to leave him a nasty letter this time telling him that she already let is slide once with no tooth for her, but from now on, she'll be requiring an actual tooth if he wants to get any money from her. Maybe that'll make him be more concious of where his loose teeth go.

I hope I'm that lucky that I never have to see or pull them!!!!

LOL! At least this way you get out of the pulling them part of the whole mess.

OK, new Christmas card! Anyone else hearing "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" over and over in their head?

You could always just wait for them to reappear then the tooth fairy could come and collect!

I have a few over at the castle you could borrow.

It is not a good advice to pull a loose tooth before it is ready. All jokes aside, if you pull it too early you can rip the gum and cause infection. Also, if you pull a tooth out before it is naturally ready to come out, the adult tooth can come in the wrong spot.
