Here at Casa de Daniel we are anxiously awaiting the loss of a tooth. Tess’s tooth.
She lost her first tooth earlier this summer and it was an event. Our adventurer, she was over the moon at the prospect instead of petrified as her brother’s had been. Look! It’s wiggling! Wow! There’s blood! Will it come out today? What about tonight? I hope so!
Her excitement was due, in large part, to the cash incentive. The economy is rough, people. Tess would do just about anything for money.
Her joy was too good not to document every step of the way.
She woke up from nap wondering if it was ever really going to fall out. I assured her it was imminent. But how do I get it out?!
She attempted to suck it out,
followed by some earnest wiggling.
I’m gonna go look in the mirror. . .
Mom! Look! It’s totally backwards! I tried not to spew at this point.
Maybe if I can turn it again. . .
Look at it now!
It’s sooooo loose! Let’s go show dada!
Dada, look at my tooth!
Jac offered to help out which she was eager for at first
but soon became less than pleased.
Wow. What a trooper.
We’re not sure how it was even hanging in there at this point. Check out the blood!
Ta da! It was out! (And not a single tear! Bravo!)
Now she can’t wait to do it again!
*In other news, the littlest lady in the house sat up on her own today. She was so pleased with herself and her siblings acted like she had won gold. Let the fun begin!
Awesome, but EEEEEWWWW! When I was wiggling my own teeth out, I think I was a lot like Tess, but now, looking at it…that makes me a bit squeamish too! Congrats Tess!! I hope the tooth fairy rewards you handsomly for your bravery!
Yeah Tess! go Gemma, go Gemma!!!
Awesome! 10/10 on presentation! Way to go Tess! I recently pulled out a child’s tooth and it helps to clip/pinch with your nails to beak those darn fibers. With the gazillion more teeth that will be lost in the Daniel household in the coming years, her siblings can all look to Tess on how to get it done 🙂
I was one who let my teeth dangle and couldn’t figure out why my mom was skeeved out by it. Now I know. NOW I know.
No, Gemma, no!
Good tips – we have tried a lot of things on teeth but you are right – we have quite a few to go. I have a hard time not puking in my mouth when we are trying to get them out. I will leave the pinching of tooth threads to Jac!
I don’t do trips to the ER or anything to do with injuries involving blood, stitches or possible broken bones but bumps, bruises and teeth I can handle.
Haha I did the same thing I would twist and twist and dig my nails under to get some leverage anything to get it out! Way to go Tess and Gemma!
