How does it feel to lose 5 teeth in two weeks?


Well, I have to hand it to her, Brooke has had quite the two weeks with losing her FIVE teeth. She REALLY did not want us NEAR her mouth. She would inform us that we could pull her 5 loose teeth "TOMORROW."

Well, of course, her whole mouth of lose teeth made her two front teeth cross over each other and look REALLY odd. The teeth would all bleed on a regular basis.

So, I pulled four of them when she thought I was going to give her hugs for a bump she got...and as MEAN as it sounds....

As I went to give her hugs better, since she was crying ANYWAY, and since she was not expecting it.... I took those opportunities to tug them. IS THAT TRULY DECEITFUL????

Then we clapped for her and made her try to feel really good about what just happened. It worked, especially when we got out the container for the tooth fairy. Luckily we had enough quarters laying around for FIVE teeth. She gets six quarters per tooth. I am sure that is REALLY cheap as far as tooth fairies are concerned...but she doesn't mind.

SIX quarters per tooth? Sheesh! Our tooth fairy gives 2 quarters per tooth!

Oh my gosh! 5 teeth in 2 weeks?! How is the girl even eating! Bonnie... really? Promise your child a hug and you pull her teeth out instead?

And thank you for keeping it at 6 quarters. Some people's tooth fairies are seriously out of control. :)

Natalie got 2 dollars for one tooth. Is that too crazy? Poor Brooke, she must be traumatized!
