The Tooth Fairy made her inaugural appearance tonight!

When Chris was helping Izzy brush his teeth tonight, he noticed something very disturbing - click on the picture below and you'll see a new tooth growing behind that bottom right front tooth.
So I grabbed the camera and Chris got to work.

After a few unsuccessful tugs, Izzy pulled back and said, "Wait. Let's talk about this for a couple of minutes." It was a good try, but the pulling went on.

He was a super trooper though. He even let Sophie give it a shot, but that tooth was hanging on with all it had.
Chris resorted to using a dental floss slipknot after 40 minutes of unsuccessful tugging.

First two tries didn't work. The floss he's holding in the picture below? No tooth in that knot.

So I switch camera settings and he reties the floss onto the tooth for a third time.

Izzy was being so brave and excited throughout the whole thing. He counts Chris down.... one.... two.... three!

Success at last!!!

WOW, Izzy is a SUPER TROOPER because I am telling you neither one of my kids would have gone for that whole thing for more than 15 seconds! WOW!! Cool way to "journal" the moment(s) too!
