A couple of days after Noah lost his first tooth, his second tooth was ready to come out. We pulled it and he placed it in the tooth box under his pillow. Shortly after putting them to bed, Matt heard some noises from their room. He went to see what was going on and Noah was up, relocating the tooth to his fire plane, so the tooth fairy couldn’t find it. Why? He wanted to start his own tooth collection. He really didn’t want a visit from the tooth fairy, so Matt helped him make a sign for the door. Plus it was safely secured inside his fire plane.
We thought that was good enough, but a little while later Matt checked and noticed Noah laying in the middle of the floor. He asked what he was doing and Noah responded, “I just can’t find it.” He had decided to relocate his tooth from the fire plane but had dropped it. We assured him the tooth fairy was not going to come and search for his lost tooth. Daddy even showed him that he texted the tooth fairy to say she didn’t need to visit. We finally convinced him to go to sleep and that in the morning we’d help him find the missing tooth for his collection.
PS: We never tried to get the boys to believe in the tooth fairy, but thanks to friends and tv they really believe in her and it’s kind of adorable.
PPS: Mommy finally found the tooth wedged in the bottom of the fire plane.
