Our sweet Tanner seemed to be in the business of collecting teeth.
He had so many that the sharks in the Pacific Ocean considered moving to Bahrain to hang with their newest hero, Toothy Tanner!
The dentist assured the worried parents of one Tanner Flusche that he would be fine and that the tiny baby teeth would work their way out on their own: NO dental intervention necessary.
To be honest we had our doubts.Then one day Tanner had enough, he resolved to pull it out so his "Big Boy Teeth" could have some room. Tough-Guy pulled it out at school and enjoyed the trip to the nurse's office to claim his plastic tooth-keeper necklace with pride.
That's one tiny tooth!
Mommy made this cute quilted tooth pillow so Tanner could leave his contribution to the Tooth Fairy securely under his pillow at bed time.
The Tooth Fairy left $3.00 in the pocket of the pillow which is so much more that the measly 25 cents she used to leave Tanner's Mommy when she was a girl! ;)
Tanner asked why she left U.S. Dollars instead of Bahraini Dinar to which I explained that clearly the Tooth Fairly must be American! (LAUGH!)
Loosing a tooth was so much fun that Tanner decided to do it again the next day.
Two teeth in two days, Geeesh!
The school nurse was beginning to think he was desperate to get out of class.
Less than a month later Tanner enlisted the assistance of a Granny Smith apple to do the dirty work.
Shortly thereafter the forth tooth came out with a lot of wiggling!
If that's not the look of pure JOY and PRIDE, I don't know what is!
Now all he want's for Christmas is his two front teeth! ;)
