My son, who is ten, came running in to tell us that half a tooth had come out.
We had a look and sure enough, a large piece of one of his teeth had broken off.
Trying to lighten the moment, I asked my husband, “What do you suppose the tooth fairy gives for half a tooth?”
“Nothing” he replied. “She wants the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth”.
