Alex told me this morning that his loose tooth is VERY wiggly and "it feels like a sharp thing is in there" – and I confess I felt a surge of excitement because I REMEMBER that sharp feeling.  It’s the bottom of the tooth, it’s poking his gum when the tooth is wiggled, and that means it is SO close to coming out.

I took a look and oh it was so hard NOT to just – Oops! – pull the tooth right out.  It is SO close.  I think it will fall out today.  If I don’t lose control and yank it out myself. 

…I don’t know why I’m so anxious to pull it out. 

It’s not like the tooth fairy’s bringing anything for ME….
