Remember when you lost your first tooth? Probably not, but we are fairly certain is wasn’t nearly as exciting as what this little golfer did. Six year-old Maxton Price was on the verge of losing his first tooth and needed one final push – or in this case – swing.
Lots of kids look forward to losing their first tooth (or even their second, third and fourth!), but 6-year-old Maxton Price and his dad took the matter seriously.
“His dad likes to golf, and Maxton likes to golf as well,” Maxton’s mother, Tasha Price, told TODAY. “And my husband just had the idea to drill the hole through the golf ball.”
Why, you ask? So that Maxton could take out his own tooth with the simple swing of his golf club. While most kids would be shaking in their boots, Maxton was relaxed, which isn’t unusual for him.
“He’s a pretty calm kid about everything,” said Price. “He and his dad had the plan for a really long time.”
And it worked like a charm! Maxton took one breezy stroke and knocked it out of the park… or off the back deck. That’s when they started to worry.
“After we hit the ball, we thought maybe the tooth would stay on the floss but it didn’t,” said Price. “My husband had to stay out on the back deck to look for the tooth. It took him about ten minutes, but daddy was the hero and he found it.”
Congratulations, Maxton. Looks like the next round of juice boxes are on you!
