Well his tooth was very loose (because the adult tooth was coming up right behind it) and luckily for Ben it came out on its own one morning while he was watching tv. I was still in bed though and Madgie told him to come up and tell me about it. So, Ben came up and put the tooth on my hand. I didn't know what it was and thinking it was a bug (because Ben has an interest in bugs and even has a bug catcher)...I screamed and flung the tooth across the room! Then he told me what it was and Paul and I spent the next hour looking for the tooth! Apparently he came downstairs and when Madgie asked him about it, he said that we had lost his tooth! Luckily, we did finally find it (underneath the mattress in the corner of the bed frame) but I was feeling terrible the entire time that I had lost his first tooth! Anyway, once we finally found it, it was time to capture the moment with some pictures!
When I was growing up I had a tooth pillow that I put my teeth in and the tooth fairy would then leave me money in the pillow. I am so greatful that Madgie and Patch still had this pillow and Patch (who was still at home and hadn't come up yet) searched their house, found it, and sent it up for Ben to use! He didn't use it right away though - he wanted to wait until Patch came up so he could show Patch his tooth! So finally, a few days after losing the tooth, we got the pillow, showed Patch, and put the tooth in the pillow for the tooth fairy! In the pillow, the red mouth open a bit and you can slide the tooth (or money) in that pocket.
