"All I want for Chrithmuth . . ."

This post is about a month late, but after literally months of wiggling and agonizing, and hanging on by threads, Joey finally lost his two front teeth. The first was knocked out when I tried to wiggle it - Joey panicked, knocked into my hand, and out came the tooth. Then he flipped out over the blood (and a bit of anger over mommy "pulling" it out) after which Gracie concluded she DOES NOT want to lose any of her teeth! The second came out when he was playing basketball with Joe and some friends, and Joe knocked the other one out. Somehow, there wasn't any anger at Daddy- go figure!!

You're very handsome toothless, Joey. :) I've heard eating an apple or a frozen snickers bar helps to free a tooth. Glad the teeth finally found freedom! Do you guys do tooth fairy stuff?

Sarah, I had to comment on this post (especially since you so graciously commented on my couch post) - I read this the other day and was going to post but didn't for some reason or another.

I agree with Gracie - losing teeth is no fun! When I was little I told my mom I didn't want to go to school b/c I didn't want my teeth to fall out. And now Sadie has her own tooth issues - she's 2 1/2 and one of her top front teeth hasn't come in. We had it looked at (dentist x-rays and an oral surgeon), and she'll have to have surgery in the next few years to remove some extra tooth-like pieces that are blocking the tooth from coming down.
