Luckily, my husband was working from home and I could leave my son there to eat lunch while I headed back to the store with debit card in hand. On my way home, I finally started to relax and figured this day was going to get better. Then my phone dings with a text message. My husband says that my son lost his first tooth and that he doesn't know where it went - that he thinks he might have eaten it. WHAT??!!! A tooth? We didn't even know one was loose. And it's not like he was eating an apple when he ate it. Nope, he was eating a doughnut.
It wasn't until after my husband took this photo that he realized that there was a missing tooth. My son - he had no clue and had to run and look in a mirror.
So after getting home and explaining to him about the tooth fairy, I whipped up this little pillow to place on his bedroom door. I was truly winging it when I made it. I wanted a small pocket for the tooth and a separate pocket for whatever the tooth fairy left. This time around we'll have to leave a note in the tooth pocket. I have it on good authority that the tooth fairy will be leaving a new toothbrush and a few other goodies along with a $2 bill. It took me about 30 minutes to make this.
I figured by placing it on the door it will provide easier access for the fairy than under the pillow. It could also hang on a bed-post but my son's bed doesn't have one. So here's hoping for no more surprises today and a relaxing evening.
