Evan lost a baby tooth last evening. It was the first one he had lost in a long time. With all of his previous lost baby teeth, we had a special visitor come to our house. The Tooth Ferret would come that night and bring him a dollar per tooth.
But this time, he refused the Tooth Ferret. Fact is, he never believed there really was a Tooth Ferret but this time he officially shed his boyhood. There would be no more Tooth Ferret for him. And no more sneaking into his bedroom and hoping he doesn't wake up for me.
I will miss that whiskery and rascally little ferret.
