Something's Missing...


   Emerson turned 6 this past October.  She is one of the older kids in her class and she was also one of the last to lose their first tooth.  She had one up front that has been wiggling and jiggling all over the place.  Pushing her tongue against it, it would pretty much lay flat at a 90 degree angle.  Two nights ago, we convinced her to let us try and see if we could get it.  I barely touched the thing and she couldn't take it.  BUT...Mommy has actual magical powers and convinced her to give it another shot.  Sandra grabbed the wrong tooth a couple times intentionally to make Emerson laugh which really eased the pressure.  Then she grabbed the right one and popped that thing out!

   Needless to say, Emerson was super excited almost to the point of being giddy.  I think it freaked her out a little but she's a champ.  She already had medicine all over her hands for bedtime, so she dictated a note to Sandra that could be left for the Tooth Fairy asking for a sweet treat in exchange for the tooth.  $1 magically appeared overnight and was quickly exchanged for a ring pop.  It's hard to imagine that only a few years ago, she didn't have any teeth at all and now they are starting to come out!!
