Swimming at the pool and a cookout in the canyon were the plans for this weekend but the rain just kept pouring down. Instead, we spent most of the time:
But one HUGE event did take place.
Gabriel lost his first tooth.
When he discovered that it was loose Monday morning he was concerned that he needed to go to the dentist and would surely need to miss school in the morning. Who could possibly attend school with a loose tooth?
So I reached over and pulled it right out.
But when the big boys suggested that he place it under his pillow in exchange for quarters a look of horror came over his face, “I’m not going to let that ol’ tooth fairy get MY tooth. I’m keeping it forever!”
He hid it in his piggybank where the fairly would surely never find it.
This morning Gabriel brought his piggybank downstairs and we sifted through to find the tiny tooth.
But a miniature incisor can only be shown off for so long before calamity descends upon it. The tooth was dropped into a heating vent never to be seen again.
Upon hearing his sad tale my neighbor gave him two shiny quarters.
