a tooth story documented (soLs)
“Did you lose a tooth today?” were the first words out of my mouth when Sam greeted me at my car this afternoon.
“Yep, and it’s a story you won’t believe.”
Since he’s six the story doesn’t come out the same every time he tells it. When he told me, he made sure to let me know he had a napkin to blot the empty space and he drank water and spit. When he told Papa, he included three conversations he had with his friends…all of them were trying to convince him that he did, indeed, lose a tooth!
And who knows what he told his teacher. Here is the note she sent…

This is the 1 minute version he told the computer…
(I think the embedded podcast is working, but just in case, here is the link.)
And here is the note he left the tooth fairy…
“Good luck with that,” Hannah told him. I’ve been waiting for the tooth fairy to come for weeks. I even have two teeth and she still hasn’t come.”
“Yeah, but you didn’t leave a note,” Sam said.
“She tried to recycle the note I left,” Stephanie joined the conversation. “I think Hannah really ticked her off!”
“Well she’ll be here tonight,” Sam said, placing the note at the top of the steps.
Let’s hope the tooth fairy remembers.
