It was bound to happen sooner or later I guess, but the whole thought of Lillian losing a tooth made my stomach turn! A couple of years ago during a weekend trip to Syracuse, Lillian tripped on Grandma and Grandpa’s floors and knocked her front tooth loose. I frantically made calls to her doctor back in Vermont while Aunt Betsy helped Lillian out since I was a wuss and almost passed out. Her tooth stayed loose for a couple of weeks, but the gums around it finally tightened up so we were lucky that she didn’t lose her first tooth at three years old. Fast forward to today.
I was hoping that I wouldn’t be the one that would have to give the final pull on her first “natural” loose tooth…….I was wrong! Maybe it’s the fact that I was the only one that was here that made my body realize that I couldn’t pass out, but I made it through the pull……blood and all! And now I have a very happy 5 year old that is extremely excited to go to school next week to show all of her friends!!!
Hopefully Daddy will be home for the next one!!!
