Tekle Lost His First Tooth!
Last year Tekle told us that when kids in Ethiopia lose a tooth, they throw it up on the roof and a bird comes and takes it away. He also said that you were supposed to sing a song, but couldn't remember the words. It was really bothering him that he couldn't remember, so I told him that I would ask my friend Yebralem (who's from ET) if she knew it. I was so excited to find out that she did, and she was even sweet enough to sing it over the phone for him!
I asked him today if he would like to go throw his tooth on the roof, but Tekle opted for the American tooth-fairy tradition instead because "birds don't give you money".
