First Tooth Fell Out

For a couple weeks now, Soren’s bottom tooth has been a bit loose and just last night was hanging on by a root.

Last night he was getting some nerves up and was trying to pull it out, even using dental floss (with my encouragement as the TF only comes at night)   He let me film him as he too thought it was coming out.  But towards the end where there was a bit of blood,he got very scared, had some tears and needed a big hug, so I shut it off and he went to bed.

This morning, he came down with a big smile and a tooth in his hand very proud.

So here it is, the first tooth lost at age 7!

I was saying a lot of kids lose their first tooth around 5 so he’s a bit late.  I was wondering if it’s genes or what which dictates they fall out.  I read the tooth which comes in first is the one which falls out first and the younger the child was when their teeth come in, the earlier they fall out – that explains it…. late with teeth (which was a good thing).

The “American Tooth Fairy” and the “European Tooth Fairy” sent a joint card with a $2.00 bill (which is very special and unique) and a 2. Euro coin – any more is overkill.

We’re off to the Howth Prawn Festival today where he’ll surely spend his 2 euro coin.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

A Boston girl currently living in Dublin, Ireland snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journeys from the USA to the UK. We were there for a couple years then onto Ireland for the past 3+ years. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is 1/2 American & 1/2 Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring Europe and beyond with our two amazing kids. It’s essentially a journal of our family.
