Teeth are usually one of the first things I notice on someone. I’m usually not bothered by them as long as they’re healthy and stable. We had a waitress once who’s front teeth were completely rotten. I could barely eat (ooh, new weightloss plan!).
Last week Ricardo left me at home for three days with a child who had a tooth hanging by a thread.
It finally came to the point that it needed to come out. Nathan didn’t want me to go near it, but both of us needed to be brave.
I grabbed a hold of the tooth and told him to take a deep breath and at the count of three to exhale. As he exhaled I twisted and the tooth flew out almost going down my shirt.
I was so proud of both of us!
Unfortunately, I might have just become the family tooth puller!
Here he is with his big gap!
