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.
