Jake's New Way to Earn Money

Jake lost another tooth earlier this week and was QUITE happy that the Tooth Fairy actually remembered to put a dollar under his pillow.

He carried the dollar around constantly, sometimes just getting it out of his pocket to look at it.  Clearly, he enjoyed having it.

It was Kate's birthday yesterday and as Jake watched her open presents, he suddenly pulled the dollar from his pocket and handed it to her saying, "I want to give you this for your birthday present."

Awwww....  I was very surprised since Jake REALLY loved having that dollar. 

The kids went to bed and about an hour later, Jake came walking downstairs holding a wad of tissue up to his mouth.

Apparently, he had worked on his {slightly} loose upper tooth to make it come out so that he could once again be the proud owner of a dollar bill.

His tooth was barely loose when he went to bed and judging from all the blood on the tissue, he worked pretty hard to get it out.  But at the end of the day, he still ended up with a dollar in his pocket.

And all was right with his world.

I'm still cracking up every time I think about it!

I've missed Jake stories. He totally cracks me up. Josie's lost 2 teeth this week too. Her teeth didn't require loads of bloody tissues though. Hugs to Jake.

PS. Happy Year of the Horse!
