So imagine my surprise when Hunter, innocently looks at me and says, "You made me something special to put my tooth in for the tooth fairy, right?".
Of course I didn't admit that that had been the last thing on my mind ... and the fact that my little boy still thinks I can make him just about anything lickety-split is a ego-boosting, wonderful thing. He won't always think I'm so cool.
So after dropping him off at school, I hurried home and printed up this tutorial (which I had ear-marked well over a year ago). There were a lot of other things that needed to be done ... but this definitely trumped all of that! I had some fleece that I used & fabric laying around and it really wasn't hard and didn't take too long (just every free moment of my entire day) ...
And since it was a tooth that the dentist had to pull, and he was such a brave boy (and he had a REALLY hard time ... oh my) ... the tooth fairy brought him $10 ... compared to the usual $1 that he'll get for just losing his teeth on his own.
