Sleep Tight Tooth Fairy

Yesterday was quite a day for young Pierson! He had to have one of his molar teeth pulled. It was decayed down to the gum line. The dentist was afraid that it would abscess and become very painful. So... off we went. He was very brave. He cried a little when he got the Novocain. :( He did really well while she pulled. It came out in two pieces. (it was that bad!)  After the pieces were out the dentist put a cotton swab on it to stop the bleeding. It was then that Pierson lost control! He began crying, almost screaming! None of us could calm him down. He kept saying "Dat hurt!" After a minute the dentist pulled the cotton out to look and see what was happening... immediately he stopped crying. It was the cotton that threw him over the edge???? Really!?
This morning he woke to find some "pennies" in his tooth container the dentist gave him. His eyes about popped out of his head when he saw it under his pillow! He was very excited and asked if the tooth fairy would come again tonight. "Only if you want to go get another tooth pulled out today" I said.  With a wide grin he said, "OH, no shank you!"
Sleep tight little tooth fairy hopefully we won't see you for a while!

Ugh, two pieces? Poor baby!
I'm glad the tooth fairy was kind after all that trouble!
