Working Together

Today was a day for woodwork, we went off to the hardware store and bought a few extra items for Caiden’s tool box including wood, a new hand saw and sandpaper. He is so inspired right now, how wonderful to see how driven he is to create with wood. He has been working from a sweet book called, Woodworking for Kids. Richard was working with him today in the garage and they really enjoyed spending father and son time together.

Ginny, over at Small Things is hosting a Mamma4earth giveaway for me on her lovely blog.

Kye just informed me that he has two loose front teeth, if you have any special family traditions for when your little one’s lose their first teeth, please do share, I would love to hear about them.

    The tooth fairy brings a dollar coin for each tooth that is lost in our house. In the US, the dollar coins are gold colored so very exciting for the kids. That is great that your son is doing woodworking. I would love to see what he makes!

    Our tooth fairy bring a special currency – first is was a $2 bill (which is not used widely in circulation, so a bit special). It has no evolved into dollar coins. Love the woodworking. My youngest is a tool fanatic. Even at 3,almost 4, he insists on real tools.

    My boy’s love to work with wood so thank you so much for the book recommendation!
    We have always done the same as ducklingsinarow in our home too, although we use a fifty cent piece.

    We had to adapt our tooth fairy tradition. My son Little Red is only 5 and he got really upset that the tooth fairy was going to take his tooth away. I created a tooth fairy pouch but his tooth is kept in a special first tooth holder. He still got £2 for his tooth but we didn’t take it away. Not quite what your meant to do but he was heartbroken.

    My son unfortunatly ‘lost’ his first tooth at age 3. He slipped on some gravel whilst wearing those ‘darn’ Crocks and when I told him to spit out the gravel, there in amongst it all (and lots of blood) was a tooth. We popped it in some sterile solution and raced to the dentist, who then shoved it back in. Despite my son bitting down on his daily apple, the tooth stayed firmly in place for another 3 years until it fell came out on it’s own terms, with a lot less blood and tears!
    He now gets 2€ per tooth but tells me the going rate is 5!!

    I’m no good on tooth fairy help. Personally, I can’t stand the whole mess. Trying to sneak in after kids are asleep…… I’ve resorted to having The Native’s put their teeth in a plastic bag and leave it by the door. It works………

    Today, I have a new tradition in reference to losing teeth: rejoicing that there are adult teeth underneath them. There are not always adult teeth underneath them. Which is pretty much what the blog I am about to write is all about.

    But it has ALWAYS been my tradition to celebrate wood working children. Always.
