Eric’s Loose Tooth

Eric’s bottom baby teeth came out last summer – both while we were on camping trips.  His front teeth have been very loose for quite some time now and it has caused quite a problem.  Eric was so concerned about the ‘pain’ of the tooth coming out that he altered what he ate, how he drank and how he brushed his teeth.  It got to a critical stage yesterday.  The tooth was sideways, the new tooth was ready to come in and he was panicking over the whole affair.

This was not a happy kid.

We debated forcing the issue, but decided not to.  Fortunately, sometime around 2am during the night he had a coughing spell and the tooth popped out.  The tooth and a special note to the tooth fairy were put under the pillow and she delivered cash.  Voila, a gaping hole and a happy kid.
