tooth lessons

Mommy to Son: Are you getting a loose tooth?

Son: Yes.

Mommy: Really?! Can I see it?

Son: Yes.

(Mommy touches lower front tooth. Small, very small wiggle.)

Mommy: WOW! I felt that! Your first loose tooth!

Son: (smiling)

Mommy: Of course you know what this means! The Tooth Fairy will be visiting you.

Son: (eyebrow raise. tentative smile)

Mommy: Do you know what the Tooth Fairy will bring you?

Son: Yes.

Mommy: What?

Son: A new tooth!
