My Baby Loses His First Tooth... Wait, What??

I'd like to share a letter I just sent to my five year old son's teacher.

Hi Mr. Doe:


I was going through The Animal's things from school and happened upon a plastic baggie with his name on it... The bag contained a wee little tooth. After a near meltdown that I had somehow managed to not notice that my youngest son had lost his first tooth (presumably last Friday, since the stuff I was going through was from his weekend papers), I called him over to see where it had come from. He showed me his bottom teeth and said "It already grew back. Look!" 


I said, "Sweetie, whose tooth is this? Where did it come from?" 

To which he cried plaintively, "What?! I found it on the floor!!" Like that automatically made it his. 

So. I have this tooth... 

I'll put it in his backpack tomorrow for you to reclaim and hopefully give to its rightful owner. 



Does this happen to other people??

  1. Bailey's second tooth went MIA at kindergarten. So perhaps there is another kiddo trying to convince their tooth fairy to pay up?


Thoughts appreciated. Advice welcome. Douche-baggery scoffed at then deleted.
