A Very Wiggly Tooth and A Very Mean Mom!


Tater lost her second tooth last week! While she was anxious to have it out she was dreading pulling it out. I'm a really mean mom and not afraid of teeth pulling. Her tooth was barely hanging on for days, she showed us ALL THE TIME how loose it was but refused to let us pull it or help her do the deed. We were headed to California and as extra insensitive told her the tooth fairy wouldn't know where she was if she lost it in California and so she needed to have it out before. She didn't care, she said the sand fairy would come. So there we were in sacrament meeting and sweet, trusting Tatum let me feel how loose her tooth was. Wiggle, wiggle, it went and then WHAM! I pulled down hard, it didn't take much. She was so very angry at me and cried and cried. How irreverent are we! Chris took her out into the hall and I followed to pull it the rest of the way out. There were many tears but the second it was out she quit crying and was SO excited about her even bigger hole. She was furious at me but quickly forgave me and was anxious to leave her tooth for the tooth fairy!

I hope the tooth fairy brought her a nice chunk of change for that tooth! Kamryn freaks out everytime she sees blood, so you can guess how much fun losing teeth are around here.

Tatum looks grown up with her little gap. Very cute!!

Don't let Heidi fool you. She was not always a tooth pulling person! When she was a kid...she would hyperventilate over pulling her tooth. She would want it back in her head...she would cry and cry...she would stay in the bathroom for hours. SHE HATED LOOSE TEETH!!! I cannot believe she treats my grandchild like that!
