Look What’s Missing

Matthew lost his first tooth yesterday.

He was very nervous about losing a tooth, afraid it would hurt, but once it came out he was very excited. We called all the grandparents and made a big fuss. I told him to be sure to show his teachers.

In the car that afternoon I asked what he thought the Tooth Fairy might leave.

“Maybe a hundred-dollar bill,” he said. And he was serious.

I laughed so hard I nearly crashed the car.

The Tooth Fairy came last night and left a $1 coin. Matthew thought it was pretty cool and tucked it into his piggy bank until he can think of how he wants to spend it.
