Another Tooth for Ben!

Ben lost his 8th tooth Thursday morning!  We discovered it was loose Wednesday night at dinner when it bled a little and Ben refused to eat any more dinner!  He made Nick try to pull it out that night but it wasn't budging.  On Thursday morning, before school, Ben tried to pull it out and was in tears when I told him that we would have to leave it and try again that night.  Right before we left, he begged to try again and he pulled that tooth out all by himself!  He was very proud of himself!  The Tooth Fairy came, but the process wasn't quite as smooth as usual! I woke up at 5am to Ben yelling, "The Tooth Fairy didn't come!!!"  That jarred me right out of my slumber.  As most of you know, once these boys are awake, there is no going back to bed, so luckily, as Ben rested in our bed, the Tooth Fairy snuck in and left him his surprise and a note assuring him that she would never forget about him!
