Grace's First Lost Tooth

Last Tuesday, Grace had "the best day of her life." The reason why: she noticed two loose teeth that day. She was so excited. She's wanted to lose a tooth ever since her cousin Lauren lost some a couple of years ago. All Tuesday and Wednesday she told everyone that she talked to the great news. Then Wednesday night it all went downhill. Forgetting her loose teeth, she put a toy in her mouth to try to take two pieces apart. One of the teeth came part of the way out and hurt her. She cried and cried and worried about how she would ever eat again. Luckily that tooth came out Wednesday night, and a visit from the tooth fairy made the pain almost worth it.

I've been waiting to post about this lost tooth, because I was sure the other one would follow right after, and it would make a better picture. :) But now she doesn't even want to touch the other loose tooth. She's too afraid of it hurting her. So, it may be a while if that tooth has to just fall out on its own.

Hurray for a lost tooth. I used to have my students write a story in our class "Tooth Book" about losing their first tooth and draw a picture to share with everyone, but it sounds like Grace's experience was a little traumatic. Here's hoping tooth number 2 comes out without pain.

That's funny kids are all the same! They are so excited for that first tooth but then the second one they are a lot less excited. I'm glad the tooth fairy helped ease her pain. Max actually loves pulling out teeth just so the tooth fairy will come.

You could just pull the other loose teeth Ned Gregerson style...let me just look, yank, cry, pat-pat on the shoulder, well -gotta go, Pay my receptionist on the way out.
