no, no, not me, but this is just too funny not to post. my 6yo daughter has had a really loose front tooth for a couple weeks now. i took a look at it tonight and it had to go. i didn't want it coming out while she was eating and hurt one of her other teeth. she was completely freaking out, to the point of hyperventilating (sp?) so i tied a piece of dental floss on there and let her try to do it herself. you'd think she was gently stroking a pups ear or something. i kept telling her to give it a good yank but she just wouldn't do it. so a couple hours go by and bedtime is coming up. i finally put my foot down and tell her i'll take care of it myself. on come the hysterics, honestly at one point i thought she was going to faint!(have i mentioned how much of a little drama queen she is??) so finally i stood her in fron of me w/ the string wrapped around her hand trying to get her to relax a little and take a few deep breaths "i promise i WON'T pull it!! breathe!!" i felt her relax just a touch and i grabbed her hand and yanked it toward the floor for all it was worth, cringing as i do it. we both felt something give and looked at each other for a few seconds, then slowly i raised her hand up to check out the string. there hung the tooth. she looked at it, then looked at me, and busted out crying. i just couldn't stop laughing, she was so cute! her face all red and swollen from all the crying she'd done. so i ran her into the kitchen and grabbed a towel and stuck it in her mouth to stop the bleeding. so now i've got a little girl w/ a gap tooth grin.
she put the tooth in a little tooth shaped box i made and crammed it between her matress and bedframe, right by her pillow.
