he awoke on December 23rd, the tooth was gone. Yeah, he had swallowed it in his sleep. Either that or he swallowed it with his breakfast that morning. Either one, he swallowed it. We checked it's loose-ness the night before and it wasn't quite ready to let go. Guess we thought wrong. Tooth fairy hasn't come yet ( I am not about to search through his bathroom business to retrieve it) but she'll give him double for the next one that comes out. If he doesn't swallow it.
So here he is, first thing in the morning, dirty face and all...missing tooth.
