Three for three

Three teeth in three days, if I didn't know any better I would think that Jayden was trying to manipulate the toothfairy.  Well, I do know Jayden and I do know better and I think that's exactly what he's doing because he has his eye on a new lego set. His first tooth was really loose, but the next two were barely starting to wiggle.  He went to work on them and by the nights end they were out and he had a crisp new dollar bill
under his pillow.  I'm the first to admit, I don't do teeth.  The blood, the cracking roots, just ewww. Since Jason was gone for 2 of the teeth pulling sessions Kylie was nice to step up to the plate.  She was so calm and reassuring, "just one more little tug, I promise it won't hurt". That's what big sisters are for.  To make up for the mom's shortcomings, right?  The arrival of the toothfairy always brings up the age old question, is the toothfairy real?  Which always leads to the bigger question, is Santa Clause real?  Kylie has been bugging me about this for quite awhile (Jayden tends to go with the "don't bite the hand that feeds you theory". As long as he gets presents he doesn't really care where it comes from). I finally told Kylie. I thought she would be crushed, but instead she was so giddy with excitement that she finally knows the answer to one of life's biggest mysteries. I guess they have to grow up sometime.

he had just gotten out of the bathtub where he had sat for the past hour working on his tooth, so no this is not his new hairstyle.

eww, I don't do teeth either. SO gross. I love that Kylie took over and helped out her little brother. So sweet. He looks adorable with his toothless grin!

Wow, three teeth in three days. That's a lot! His lego fund must be coming along well. That is so sweet that Kylie took over for you! She is such a kind sister. I'm glad she took the big news about Santa so well. It is a sad thing to have them loose that part of their childhood. She's getting so big! I love that last toothless smile picture. Glad the hairstyle is not a keeper:)
