Tooth Trophy

Josh had to get a baby tooth pulled last week, and a cavity filled. The permanent tooth was coming in behind the baby tooth because they weren't lined up. So the baby tooth would never have come out on it's own without the root breaking off.

I tried to use him as an example to get Emily to be a little more diligent about taking care of her teeth. Um, yeah. Right. It totally backfired in my face! I asked him if he thought Emily would like to go get her teeth pulled, and he said, "Sure! It didn't hurt a bit! And you get 2 tokens for prizes!!" Sheesh!! Since when are cheap little toys more precious than teeth???

The tooth fairy let him keep this tooth since it was kind of a "special" circumstance. He showed everyone he could, just like it was a trophy. I hope he doesn't plan on getting any more trophies!
