Toothless x 2

Tyson is finally on the path of loosing his baby teeth. I was so happy to be able to witness the loss of his second tooth in person. The first tooth came out when I was out of town with my"Sensational 6." The second loose tooth has been bothering him for several days. He was at a friend's home on Monday and even asked his friend's mommy to pull it out for him. When he got home, we decided to try the old fashioned way of pulling teeth... tie a string to the tooth, tie a string to a door, and slam the door. I thought it was just a myth, but evidently, Tyson and Darren believed otherwise.
First step, tie dental floss or string to the tooth.
There it is. All ready to be tied to the door.
We were all laughing because we couldn't wait to see the end result.
Second step, tie the dental floss to a door.
Bam!!!!!!!!!! Slam that door. Sure enough the tooth popped out. Darren and Ty were amazed that the tooth popped out so quickly.
And there it hangs, literally by a string.
Tyson was so relieved.
And proud.
We don't do the tooth fairy in our home. Instead, we will have a scavenger hunt with tons of clues. If Tyson is successful in following the clues, he will find a heap of cash at the end of the hunt :)
