Tooth Monster

Thursday, November 12th 2015

In place of Gavin’s lost upper front and center tooth, the new one growing in is so big it’s been knocking the adjacent one askew.  Finally dangling from sinew, the askew one came out yesterday on the bus, to much excitement.  (I first heard the news from the principal, who told me about him showing it to her upon arriving at school.)   After school, miraculously, I was able to whip together this internet-inspired Tooth Monster pillow I’d been envisioning for some time now.

Needless to say we were all kinda thrilled. Here’s Gavin planting his tooth in the mouth-pocket for the Tooth Fairy to find.

And it worked!  This morning the tooth was gone with $4 in its place.  Daddy suspects perhaps this is because its Gavin’s 4th tooth… but what do we know.  (;

Meanwhile it looks like this won’t be the last of the Monster Pillows.  ClaraJane hasn’t started losing teeth yet, but she’s already planning ears and nose and things for hers.  Daddy liked it so much Gavin asked him if he’d like me to make him one for when he starts losing teeth when he’s *old.*  It’s possible Daddy would just like one with a pocket for his cell phone.  We’ll see.

In any case, here’s another look at these two because, c’mon!
