My daughter has started losing teeth. As a kid I was excited about losing teeth as it meant getting money from the tooh fairy. I let my mom pull my teeth with a little difficulty.
But my daughter. Wow. You would think I was torturing her with the fits of drama I get.
She’s lost 7 teeth so far. She won’t just pull them out. They are so loose it’s gross to look at and I’m sure if she sneezed hard enough they would just fall out.
So my question is, when did losing teeth become something to fear and not want to do? Do kids not realize they will get money for their teeth? All the crying and carrying on was enough for me to just let the teeth fall out when the wanted.
Regardless if she ended up swallowing one or two.
Back in my day, we only got a quarter for a tooth. My daughter got $4 while at my parents when the above tooth fell out.
The one she wasn’t going to pull out.
It fell out on it’s own.
When she bit into a donut.
She said there was little blood (yeah, because it was just hanging there).
I can’t be the only parent dealing with the D-R-A-M-A from a little ole tooth! How do you cope? I’m about to jump off the little string tied to her teeth.
