The Tale of Two Teeth

In the last week and a half, Clayton has gone from this...

to this...
to this (notice how wonky his top tooth is!)...
to this!
Ha!  He lost his top right tooth at Grammie Camp last Saturday (June 2nd) and he lost his top left tooth Wednesday night (June 6th).  I remember those big, huge teeth coming in within days of each other, and yet they looked so small when they came out within days of each other...

Last Saturday, he was at his last day of Grammie Camp (Wade's mom likes to have the kids for 5 days all by themselves to have one-on-one time with them in the summer.) and his top right tooth was really loose.  Apparently, Grammie offered him $5 if he would pull it in the next 2 minutes.  My boy is motivated by money these days, so he jumped at her offer.  Papaw tied some fishing line around his tooth, and C-man pulled it all by himself.  ;)

In the four days that followed, his other top tooth got looser and looser.  It started to hang diagonally and we teased that he looked like Nanny McPhee.  Ha ha!
On Wednesday night, it was barely hanging on.  Wade gave it one good tug, and out it came.  We were all standing in the bathroom looking at his new smile in the mirror.  I said, "Boy, your mouth looks like a jigsaw puzzle!"  He said, "Yeah, it looks like that game at Chuck E. Cheese where you shoot out the horse's teeth.  Ha!

I think that he looks adorable with his missing teeth.  Of course, his freckles are out in full force and that always makes me so happy.  The tooth fairy may go broke, but he sure does look cute!
