Evan has been wishing and hoping to lose a tooth since kindergarten a full two years ago. He finally had one that was wiggly a few weeks ago and, after hours of playing with it and a swift tug by Mom, it came out. The new tooth is coming right in and the one beside it is wiggling more and more.
When Evan lost it he told me very seriously, "I know the Tooth Fairy isn't real but I want to know for sure. If I put this under my pillow will you please NOT put money under there." Just in case he was wrong he did decide to wait until the next night so he could show Dad the tooth. Despite the Tooth Fairy leaving a note and $1 he was still skeptical. We'll see what happens when tooth #2 falls out.
