Another lost tooth!
A few weeks ago (Nov. 6th) - Wes lost his first tooth! Adam and Calvin were brushing teeth in the bathroom while I secretly pulled Wes' tooth. Adam heard Wes say "Ouch", and so Adam yelled from the bathroom "Sabrina - stay away from that kid's tooth!" But seriously, it was such a quiet "ouch". Wes wasn't hurt that bad. After Adam yelled, I whispered to Wes "Do you want me to try again?" He nodded yes, and the tooth was out within a matter of seconds -- no "ouch" at all. A few minutes later, Adam and Calvin came back into the room, and Adam is just talking up a storm about how I need to stop getting in Wes' mouth and stop torturing our kids through manipulation of the teeth pulling process! (joking of course) I said, "okay, I won't." With a big smile Wes showed his daddy that his tooth was already gone. Shh -- it was our secret. :-)
Just last Sunday, Wes lost his second tooth. He woke me up in the morning and said, "Mom my tooth is really loose." Half asleep, I asked if he wanted me to pull it. He said yes. So there I was, barely awake, and I pulled Wes' tooth out quickly. No "ouch" at all. Now both boys have 2 missing bottom teeth. It seems like the only one squeamish about pulling teeth is daddy!
