And 24 hours of ZERO thumb sucking.
We started the day off like any other week. Yep, tooth is loose, but still firmly attached. Band-aids on thumbs, as we were working on curtailing the daytime enjoyment.
Explaining to Jacob why it was important to stop sucking his thumb, reading a cheesy book on it that put the power in the child to stop & we launched into a positive start towards ending the comfort habit.
While snacking yesterday at his summer babysitter's, his tooth really knocked out of place.
Delight & joy!
After looking in a small mirror, J decided he wasn't up for pulling it... So another chomp into the apple.
Success!!!! A bloody gap & tooth firmly in his hand.
Smiles & celebration were had!!!
Mommy even found the special Fairy case that Grandma P had bought in preparation for this big day!
He was so serious putting it into the case. He was so afraid of losing it & the Tooth Fairy not coming to visit.
And yet he was so proud as well. He is just growing up too quick.
This morning, J woke up with both sock on his arms, and once awake was ready for the add on of the band-aids to his thumbs. All this took a back seat though, to celebrating he slept in his own room ALL night AND his snapping to action... Case checked - tooth gone. Under the pillow check... SCORE!!!
We like the Tooth Fairy. J is ready for her to come back & visit again.
Sadly, with the way his other bottom center tooth is wiggling - I'm thinking that will happen sooner rather than later.
