First Missing Tooth

Jojo finally lost his first tooth!  It was quite an exciting time in our home on Monday when I pulled it out.  His adult tooth was growing right behind it as you can see in the picture.  It's called "shark teeth" and happens every once in a while.  Everything I've read says the adult tooth will move forward.............I sure hope so!  So, Monday night I gave him the tooth to put under his pillow and in the morning he found 100 rubles (around $3.75).  I told him the next tooth won't get as much money!  Tuesday night he came to me and asked me if he could have his tooth back.  I asked him why.  He then said he was going to put it under his pillow again so I could put more money under his pillow.  Nice try Jojo!

Praise the Lord another FIRST!!!

I've pulled several teeth myself - But of course not until they are all but fallen out of their own accord. Never did any child in our house receive such a windfall though. And sadly sometimes they say: "Dad you still haven't put any money in the cup with my tooth." hehee oops.

Dear Natalie
I've lost several teeth in my time
and once I pulled out a baby tooth that was falling out forward that was because my adult tooth was growing in forward I thought it wouldn't straighten but it did don't worry I sure your Jojo will soon have a mature and straight adult tooth.
