Anderson has had a front tooth ready to come out for a few days. He's been a little fearful (you know that's a nice way of explaining what captain dramatic can do in a situation like this) of the "yanking" to get a tooth out.
I tried pull it but when I had to tug a little bit he chickened out.
Carys (the queen of pulling her own teeth out) then tried to pull it and then tried to teach Anderson her technique. He chickened out.
So he waited. And waited.
Yesterday I picked up Giovanni and your mom picked up Anderson. When I got in the car mom said that Anderson had some good news and bad news.
The good news?
His buddy Lucas helped him pull his tooth at school.
The bad news?
His teacher had wrapped it up in a napkin and stapled it to his agenda. How is that bad news?
When he got in the car it was gone. He was shook up. We went back to the school and mom and Anderson went back in to look for it. No luck.
The only thing we can think of is that a curious friend opened his agenda and either took it out or it fell out. Mom said the falling out was unlikely after she looked at how good Vanessa (his teacher) had stapled it in there.
So we might be dealing with a tooth thief.
Why was he so upset? He was worried that the tooth fairy wouldn't come because there was no tooth.
Mom told him of the time she swallowed one of her teeth and the tooth fairy still came.
That made him feel better. He loosened up a little bit, in his way, and allowed us to take some pictures.
He came home after practice and wrote a note of explanation (complete with who he thought was the tooth thief) to the Tooth Fairy.
All it all it turned out to be a great day even with someone stealing his tooth.
