One Tooth Gone!

Russell lost his first tooth yesterday. I think I was more excited than he was. This tooth has been loose for about 2 months. He bit into a rice krispie square on Sunday and the back of the tooth came out. It was just hanging there and I was tired of looking at it. I gave Russell a mirror and he kept wiggling the tooth. Once he could see how much it moved he kept going. Next was some tweezers. I asked him if he wanted me to tie some dental floss around his tooth and he agreed. Before I had the dental floss closed he pulled it out. He said it felt better to pull and he knows that he is in control of the tooth. He did not have to wait until the next morning to get a surprise. I gave him another train for his Thomas set. This is the only train he is getting because we will be broke keeping that up. The next tooth goes under the pillow and he waits till morning and there is no train!!
