an update on The Teeth…

July 10th, 2008

Yeah, that’s a grown-up tooth growing in there, alright. The dentist told us to “push the baby teeth out” with popsicle sticks.

Both kids: “POPSICLES!??!!”

Dentist: “You can re-use the sticks, you don’t have to eat a new popsicle every time.”

The baby tooth in front of the grown-up tooth is hardly wiggling at all — but the one right next to it is. Hmm.

Also, according to Dr. Tooth, this does not indicate that all of the teeth are going to come in crazeee like this — or that the new tooth won’t “float forward.” He also suggested to the kids that they could try his daughter’s tried-and-true method from childhood: Any tooth that is loose, work on it, pry on it, push it back and forth until it comes out.

“It would usually take her two, three days. All of her teeth were gone by age nine.”

Wacky Boy: “Then I’ll be able to get LOTS of money from the tooth fairy!”

“Yeah,” the dentist told him. “You’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

    Ahhh, yes. Max has the same plan. Am I the only one who went into mourning when my baby lost his first baby teeth? I was all “aaargh! You can’t lose your baby teeth! You’re the last ONE!”

    Nan, I was not happy to see that big grown-up tooth. Invader! Thank God his sister was quite efficient about the whole thing, “That’s the first one you’ll lose, good! Then the one next to it!” At least someone was thrilled for him.
