Still loose, getting looser

Remember Fellan's tooth that was loose? Well, it's still hanging in there, but it's gotten to the point that it's really just hanging there by a thread. I'm afraid that it's going to fall out before the tooth fairy makes sure to stock up on Sacagawea's.

I swallowed my first loose tooth. I was in kindergarten, too, and I refused to let anyone touch it. I woke up in the middle of the night in the process of swallowing my tooth. This caused my mother much concern and consternation. I remember her taking me to the doctor to make sure that was OK and it wasn't going to somehow hurt me. Of course, I was fine, but we never got that first tooth back. (the tooth fairy did visit me, though - luckily, my parents informed her of the situation)

Speaking of Fellan, lately he has been saying things that are just really cute. For instance, he was sitting on the couch just now, playing with his cars and he turned to my husband and said, "I just pulled out one of my eyebrow hairs. It was bothering me, so I pulled it out! ...pause... Daddy, can I have a Nutella hot dog? It's been hours since I ate anything!" I find this funny because not only does he feel the need to narrate his life to us, he also still has no idea of the concept of time, so saying that it's been hours since he ate is just funny to me.

The other day at breakfast, Marxo asked for some water. Here's the exchange that took place between my husband, Marxo, and Fellan-
M: Daddy, would you get me some water, please?
H: Certainly
M: Daddy... it's all wet
H: It's just water, it'll dry
M: (eye roll) Daddy, I want it dry right now!
H: (laughing, laughing, drying - placed it back on table with a sigh)
F: Your wish is my command, princess. (with perfect "servant" inflection)

I was happy to hear that Fellan is learning some sarcasm after living with me for so many years. :)

I swallowed my first tooth as well- while eating a pb&j of all things!
