At least he wasn't scared or stressed over it.
He is OK with it now that we have talked to him about it. Come to find out he pretty much knew all about the tooth fairy. Said he saw her on TV
I think the fear part came because...well, brushing his teeth has always been a fight with him! I have told him for years now that he has to brush them or his teeth were going to fall out of his head! I know...good going mommy
