Another visit from the Tooth Fairy

I had to pull another tooth the other night. Nathan's two top front teeth have been lose for a while now but he hasn't wanted me to get near them. The other night though he asked me to look at one and see if it was ready. When I looked I told him that it was. We got the paper towel out and I yanked two or three times but it wouldn't come out. I broke my thumb nail a while back and I just couldn't get a good grip. He got tired of me trying and so we quit on it for the night.

The next night, however, we were eating supper and he was biting his broccoli and I told him to be careful biting on those lose front teeth that they were going to come out. He said, " No they won't mom. Watch." Below is the result of what happened when I watched.





It became obvious that it was time to pull this thing. So, after he pitched a small fit and we had to send him to his room to quit crying, he finally came out ready for me to pull it.

Enjoy the pulling:

And just like that it was over and he was back to watching a Power Ranger movie. The tooth fairy came and brought him $500. Jamaican dollars, that is, which is about US$7.

Okay, that was worse than Trauma: Life in the ER! I refuse to pull teeth. Chad pulled one of Kelsey's before it was ready and I heard the nerves crunching combined with her shrieking and made a solemn vow to NEVER, EVER pull a tooth. I have stayed true to that vow. The girls pull their own teeth, Praise Jesus.

I am cringing watching that. I was the biggest baby when it came to pulling teeth, but I am so proud of my boy.
