It's been a long time coming but today there was much excitement in the house! Big monkey lost his first tooth. He was so pleased bless him. For months now, he has been asking when he might lose a tooth? His classmates and friends had generally all started to lose theirs months ago. Not him though! On our last visit to the dentist, we were informed big monkey already had 3 of his adult back teeth, and up to three loose baby teeth, but they have clung on!
His response today. "Mum, mum, my tooth's come out!......that means I get some money!" Oh, yes, of course it does son! He has written to the tooth fairy and left his tooth under his pillow with the letter, and as usual fell asleep almost as soon as his head hit the pillow. I wonder how much the tooth fairy will leave for his first tooth? £2, £1, 50p? I suppose it depends how generous she is feeling!
Now, tooth fairies aside, big monkey is of course chuffed he has lost his first tooth. I am too, but oh so slightly sad that he is another step further to growing up!!
