Toothwatch 2011 (first installment) has officially come to an end!
Em's tooth was loose for three months! We even named it, Lucy Goosey. The big tooth began coming in behind it but Em would not let me pull Lucy. By last night it was so loose I was afraid she was going to swallow it in her sleep.
So this morning I just went for it. It was hanging on by gravity. One subtle, gentle tug and it was out.
Em looked at me incredulously and asked, "Did you pull my tooth out?!"
I showed her and she started to cry.
I asked if it hurt. She said no.
"So...why are you crying?"
She looked at me with an adorable, now partly toothless, grin and said, "I don't know!"
After the salt water gargle the excitement set in.
Finally, off to bed in anticipation of a visit from the Tooth Fairy, who left this:Along with a fairy kiss,
