While giving Little T his bedtime medicine, he complained that his mouth was hurting so I checked his mouth and his front tooth was bleeding. It had come loose and is ready to fall out. Little T started crying about his tooth and not wanting it to fall out. He lost his first tooth quite a long time ago when he fell on the stairs so he associates loosing a tooth with trauma. I put some ora-jel on it to help relieve some of the pain.Then, we had a discussion about why his tooth is loose and the whole tooth fairy talk. I have to dig out his tooth fairy pillow tomorrow so he can put it in when the tooth falls out.
