"I NEED A PEN....HURRY MOM"

Makai came home from school and he had a cute little plastic tooth holder that his teacher gave him. He's had had a loose tooth for a few days, but wouldn't let me or Ova pull it out cause he thought it would hurt. At school, one of his friends told him to just twist it and it would pop out...and sure enough, it worked!! His front tooth is gone! He went and told his teacher and she gave him the little container/necklace to put it in...it was so cute!

When he got home from school, he was so excited to show us his missing tooth and the special container his teacher gave him. I told him to be careful with it so he didn't lose the tooth so that he could put in under his pillow for the tooth fairy. He put the necklace on and went to play outside.
After a little while, he came running in all frantic saying "I need a pen Mom...hurry, right now...I need a pen" I was telling him to calm down and asked him what he needed a pen for. He said that he was playing and he didn't notice that the tooth must have fallen out of his necklace tooth-holder and he couldn't find it. He was so sad and he asked me "do you think the tooth fairy will understand if I write her a note?" I told him I didn't know, but that he could try it. He wrote this cutest little note saying, "I'm sorry tooth fairy, I lost my tooth. Please don't be mad at me." He put the note under his pillow that night with the empty tooth container and to his wonderful surprise, the tooth fairy wasn't mad at all!! She took the container and put a dollar under his pillow. He was so excited!
