BUT even though it was hurting him, he would NOT let us help him get it out. We tried everything we could think of to help him. In an effort to get him to let Greg help the process along we told him that if he was brave he could write the tooth fairy and let her know how brave he was and she might increase the $1 she usually leaves behind when she collects teeth.
We finally got the tooth out and here is the note Caed left for the tooth fairy.
Dear Tooth Fairy
Since I was so brave and noble to pull my tooth out I was wondering if you could give me a raise in the money like you always give me $1.00 instead give me $2.00, $3.00 or $4.00, $5.00.
The tooth fairy granted Caed's request and left him $2.50.
