Four months ago I posted a picture of a permanent tooth that had popped out behind one of Trenton’s baby teeth and commented that the tooth fairy would be visiting us soon.
Well the tooth fairy finally made her first appearance in our home last night. But it wasn’t for Trenton. That boy has some major shark teeth going on.
It was for Charlotte!
She’s had a loose tooth for a while (and a permanent tooth peeking out from behind the baby tooth), and has been wiggling it constantly trying to work it out. And yesterday she asked if I could pull it.
Jarrod got me a piece of fishing line, tied me a slip knot, I slipped it over Charlotte’s tooth, tied the other end to the doorknob, and slammed the door. Nothing. The string had slipped off her tooth. I tried again, and the string slipped again. After trying a third time, I gave up on the door, and just decided to yank the string myself. And I felt it pull the tooth! The tooth was still hanging on by a tiny little piece, and I just pulled it out by hand. Charlotte never even flinched!!! I couldn’t believe it! I don’t think Jarrod could either! He refused to pull it himself (he could stand up to watch the doctors cut me open for my c-section, but the thought of pulling a tooth makes him sick!). Charlotte didn’t even freak out when I put a paper towel in the spot where her tooth had been and she saw blood. She is one tough cookie!
Charlotte was so excited! She couldn’t wait to put her tooth in a bag and stick it under her pillow!
This morning she woke up to a little treat from the tooth fairy.
Trenton is working hard on getting his super slow baby teeth to loosen up now!
