Cooper woke up Thursday morning with his first loose tooth. He obsessed over it all day Thursday and just a little bit Friday. Then he excused himself from the morning assembly, marched to the nurse's office and asked her to pull it. (Katie and I were at the assembly, so after Katie noticed her big brother leaving, we just followed him out of the cafeteria.)
The nurse convinced him it wouldn't hurt too much or bleed too much, and then she pulled it. He was allowed to choose a tiny plastic treasure chest to hold the tooth. At home, we put the treasure chest in his Tooth Fairy pillow, then put the pillow under his bed pillow. He was thrilled to find four shiny quarters Saturday morning.
