Sunday: “Mommy. i think i *might* have a loose tooth!”
i don’t feel anything because he doesn’t grab my fingers and shove them in his mouth.
Monday: “It’s definitely a loose tooth!”
“let me feel” i say, willingly. look, i’m as shocked as you are. “watch jeopardy,” i say, and pull the sucker out.
(my game-show loving heart swells with pride these days. After homework, between 7 and 8 every night, my kids sit with me and we watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. they LOVE it. and, of course, i love that they love it)
what IS the going rate on teeth these days?
Josh got a loonie, a toonie, and an action figure. (that’s $3 toÂ our friends NOT from the great white north)
you wouldn’t know it from this picture…but Josh is the easy one…
