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.
