My Baby Lost a Tooth!

Say it isn't so!!! My baby (by 10 minutes), Walker, only 4 years old, lost his first baby tooth today and to make matters worse we can't even find it!!!

A month or so ago, the twins had their first dental appointment. . . no cavities, but they dentist was surprised that several of their baby teeth were already loose. Keep in mind they are PREEMIE twins, so effectively they would have only just been 4 in October! Needless to say, 2 days after their check up, Wyatt bounced up as Walker bounced down and bam, he almost knocked 3 of his teeth out. The top left front tooth was completely pointing to his throat. . . I took no photos of this. Our dentist checked him out a few days later and then about 2 weeks later he still had loose teeth. The dentist kindly filed down the teeth so that they didn't bump anymore and the top tooth set, but apparently the bottom one did not!

Here is my goof with his toothless grin. Initially he was lisping, but he's over it now!

my daughter was 4 in kindergarden-not a premmie-and she had her whole front mouth empty for the school photo. She is 33 now and has never had a cavity!

so what is the going rate for tooth fairy duties these days? I have to admit it probably is a heck of a lot more than 25 cents!

Our tooth fairy leaves $2-$5 but Walker doesn't even understand tooth fairy as we haven't even talked about him losing teeth yet! He also doesn't understand money, at all, so a quarter will probably do it! LOL!!!

WOW ... your tooth fairy is awesome!!! Ours only leaves $1 for the first tooth and $.25 for each additional tooth! And if the tooth falls out after 5 PM she doesn't visit until the next day ;)
