A loose tooth at home

Last night, flossing Lucas, I felt something different in his mouth. I looked at him and said, "sweetie, you have a loose tooth!". He opened such a big smile and hugged me, all proud! It's his lower front tooth, and it's starting to get loosen. I felt proud and "sad" at the same time. I was like, "what?! already?!". That was official, he is really growing up, this is a real milestone.
How could it be that that little baby that I used to carry ion my arms is now this little boy full of attitude, knowing exactly what he wants, and now changing teeth? Stop the bus, world, I want to stay here...
Oh well, since the world is not stopping and actually I'm happy for this new step, I found these cute "tooth catchers": if you take a close look, you'll see their mouth is a slot where you can save the tooth for the tooth fairy. I'll make one for Lucas, so he can exchange his little tooth for a coin - of course he's anxious for it to fall out.
Do you have any memories of your own first loose tooth or your children's?

I do have tons of memories with my little ones, but my last one is with my 7 year old.

Instead of the coin like was left for the others, we hung the tooth on a tree in the front yard (wrapped in pretty fabric)

Then we waited for the toothfairy In the morning under the tree was a lovely new fairytopia toy and she LOVED it.

I liked the present better than they money, her face was so lit up!

I hope you soon to be jack o-lantern will love the experience of losing one of his teeth, knowing a new one will replace it!

How exciting!

That is so cute he didn't get upset, me losing teeth was a nightmare. Ugh, don't like thinking about it. Yay for you for making it fun and a rite of passage for him. That must be hard to see the evidence of him getting older though.

I remember the Tooth Fairy from my own childhood!
I had to slip my little lost milk tooth under my pillow @ night & next morning the fairy would have left a silver sixpence piece in exhange for it.

Hugs to Lucas
