|Big smiles after losing his first tooth!!! Tiny little tooth in his hand!|
|With the flash on, you can't see the tooth, but you can see the fresh spot of blood on his gum where he pulled the tooth out! Gross!!|
We put the tooth under the pillow and the tooth fairy left him 5 riyal (about $2). When he woke up, he asked why he only got 5 riyal when other kids in his class got 100? Really?? 100 riyal is like 30 US dollars!!! For a tooth??!!! How does one explain this??? Not sure I did a very good job. He's already skeptical about the whole shenanigans ... all night he kept asking me, "Are you sure you aren't the tooth fairy?" I guess this is what happens when you are past 7 by the time you lose your first tooth ... the magic and mystery of the tooth fairy is harder to explain to a child that has a firm grasp on reality vs make believe. Either way, he was excited for his 5 riyal and even more excited to have a tooth missing from his grin!
Guess we got family pictures just in time!!
