This is my cute Nena. She is 7 1/2 and has been wanting to lose a tooth ever since she learned that she could lose a tooth. Finally, about six weeks ago, she bit into something and her tooth got lose! She was thrilled and knew that she was going to get a visit from the tooth fairy that night. When nothing happened despite hours, days and nearly months of tooth wiggling, she decided to ask the dentist to pull it out at her appointment on Tuesday. Here is the before shot we took before her dental appointment.
The dentist told her that the tooth would come out that day if she was really good at wiggling it. So, she spent the entire day moving that tooth around. This picture is when she was with Harvey and he was trying to help her get her tooth out. She obviously didn’t like his methods but, was determined to get that tooth out!
Woo Hoo! She got it out…..BY HERSELF! She pulled and twisted and popped it out herself. It was really rather gross to watch but, she was so completely thrilled with herself that she did it all by herself! I was really proud of her too.
