November 10, 2010: Another week, another tooth. After losing his bottom left tooth so soon after his top two teeth, his tooth fairy wrote:
I didn’t expect you to lose another tooth so quickly. I didn’t have time to make you another power ring, so i’m just going to leave you my shirt.
Fast forward to tonight – a far cry from his first lost tooth, which entailed 2 days of pitiful cries any time we wanted to touch it, now he asked Ima to pull it out so he could give it to the tooth fairy and ask him for a set of Pants to go with his shirt. So after services tonight, when it didn’t fall out despite attempts to coax it out with lots of bites on Challah and brownies, Ima pulled it accompanied by yells of excitement and anticipation of what was to come.
JediYeled then wrote the following
Dear Mr. Toothfairy
Guess What? Do you want to know what I just lost?
Can you please now leave your pants. I want a whole collection of your clothes. But no worries, my tooth is worth $1,000 so you can buy more clothes.
Thank you, Love JediYeled
(So nice of him to care about Tooth Fairy finances)
And here is the Toothfairy’s response:
You’re really on a roll now! Keep wiggling those teeth!
I figured you’d want my pants too so I found where you left my old smelly shirt and left you a new fresh shirt with some clean pants.
JediYeled lost his second tooth in three days – both top front teeth so he’s got that classic ‘hole in the front’ look. They were both really loose but he wouldn’t let Ima or Aba touch them. He knocked the first one out while playing with a foam pop-up toy (much to his surprise). The second one seemed like it was going to be in for a while, but the tooth fairy had other plans.
At tonight’s Cub Scout Pack meeting, all the boys got apples as treats for their game playing. JediYeled was very disappointed that we didn’t have a knife to cut it up so he could eat it right away (since he couldn’t bite it with the one loose tooth. I was able to bite out a large section for him and he tried chewing the remainder of the apple, and soon afterwards, he came up to us saying that his tooth fell out! Luckily he was blinded by the excitement to the lots of bleeding from the gums, so we dodged a bullet on that one! (he’s a big blood-phobe)
For the first front tooth a few days ago, the tooth fairy brought JediYeled at gold dollar coin. Tonight, JediYeled wrote (well, dictated) the following note to the tooth fairy:
Dear Tooth Fairy
I’m really excited that I lost my tooth. It was funny that I lost two teeth in a couple of days. I lost my tooth at Boy Scouts tonight. I was eating an apple when it popped out.
How do you carry so heavy things?
Thank you for the last money and I can’t wait for what you give me this time.
The ‘so heavy’ comment was about the relative size of the dollar coin and the size of the tooth fairy. JediYeled’s tooth fairy is a boy, naturally, but he was still curious about how strong he was.
Here is the response the tooth fairy left:
I didn’t expect to be back so soon!
It is funny that you asked about carrying heavy things because I was still tired from carrying that heavy coin last time, so I brought you a magic power ring instead.
I am happy you lost your tooth but I think you still won’t be eating apples for a long time.
