How the Tooth Got Loose

It was Monday night, and we all decided it was the night we had to get that tooth out! When we took James to his appointment the dentist was worried about Hannah's gum becoming infected since there isn't a big permanent tooth to push the baby tooth out. It could of hung in there for a long time, apparently! We wiggled and jiggled it, I had Hannah bite into an apple. When daddy got home, she was sick of me and it became a father-daughter endeavor. After a few unsuccessful attempts with some floss tied around the little tooth and some yanks, some giggles and some whining, one last try with the floss worked. Hannah was a trooper and felt like such a big girl when I told her she looked like a six year old. Any upset due to bleeding was appeased with a nice little bowl of ice cream. I kinda like her new smile - but still undecided on what to do, if anything. I'm just glad that sucker is out!

her tooth is out? oh no... now Lisa & Lorelei may not believe my story about how teeth fall out if people eat too much candy : (
she looks cute
and next time, you tie the floss to the doorknob; works every time ; ) I can't believe the apple didn't work on a front tooth though

So cute! Whohoooooo!

A tip, our tooth fairy likes to have teeth put in an envelope with the date and name of child on it, just as a FYI. Yours may too.

This was more a story of "How The Tooth Got OUT" not "Loose". I'd be interested in hearing how it became loose in the first place. :)

She does look like a 6 year old! Cute. Loose teeth make me a bit queasy actually. shh! I'm not looking forward to that phase. lol
