Get it Gone!

We did the old tie-a-string-and-pull-trick this morning.

I can't tolerate a dangling tooth.

As soon as Max showed me this one, I knew what we had to do.

Surprisingly, Max was all for it!

I tied his tooth up with a string of floss and let him tug away for what seemed to be forever.

After I couldn't take it any longer, I grabbed the string from him and yanked.

Pull. Ow! She's out! Ok, so this technique produces a little more blood than usual.

No worries.

Maybe the Tooth Fairy will chalk up a little more for the extra pain!

I love this!! I agree, I cannot handle a dangling tooth. I pulled out my fair share of teeth when I taught first grade. This is the cutest post, thanks for sharing!

I hate loose teeth as well. It seems like MacKenzie has one every month (must be the grinding she does in her sleep). I miss you! We need to get together! I am happy to see you are doing good. I can't wait to see your family pictures.
