About two weeks ago, Cooper announced on a Monday morning that his tooth was loose. Are you kidding me, he's only five. How in the heck did this happen already. He did admit to using his teeth to loosen his Legos. Boys will be boys.
So, over the course of the last week, we could see his adult tooth coming in, so the serious work of getting the baby tooth out started. See how crooked it is sitting.
We have been working with for the last several nights to get it out, and finally last night, we had success.
He actually pulled it himself. Surprise for all of us.
The toothless wonder finally was able to put his TarHeel Tooth Fairy pillow to work. He promised me that he believed in the Tooth Fairy before bed last night. And he was happy to get a Star Wars lanyard as his gift. Gotta love a flexible and all-knowing Tooth Fairy.
