Lost Tooth #6


Caitlyn has had a bottom tooth that has been loose for almost three months. the permanent tooth had already halfway come in behind the baby tooth. This has happened with one of her teeth before and we had the dentist pull her baby tooth. I told her a couple weeks ago, that if it didn't fall out soon, we were going to have to make that trip to the dentist. Monday morning she woke up excited that the tooth was finally about to come out. Usually that means lots of drama, and days of convincing her to let us pull it. Later that day, as she was doing her school work, she pulled it out herself! She was pretty proud of herself, and I was glad that the tooth was finally out! The tooth fairy didn't show up the first night. So embarrassing! My doctor told Caitlyn on Tuesday that he had heard that the tooth fairy had the flu. :) Thank you Dr. Bendheim! Anyway, she wrote the tooth fairy a letter with a big arrow pointing to where the tooth was, just in case she had trouble finding it. Lo and behold, it worked! Now she has some money for the Dollar Store, and she's telling everyone all about it. So, that's how Caitlyn lost tooth number six. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with these.
