All I want for Christmas are my two front teeth.

Monkey finally lost his other loose front top tooth. That sucker hung on for a while there. I thought for sure Chef would of taken it out while I was gone but alas he didn't. So the task was left for me to push for once I returned.

Monkey has always been a sensitive boy but he has been getting better as he has gotten older. I think for him though since he "knows" pulling his tooth will hurt and he knows it won't hurt long the fact that it WILL hurt freaks him out. No matter HOW much he wants it out. (money you know). Well we're already to take it out and he loses his mind. Crying and carrying on for apprently no reason although the reason to him is VERY valid. At this point there was no turning back. It HAD to come out but he had to open his mouth. I tried everything. Talking him out of the panic, holding his hands, coaxing him to open his mouth so his dad could get it out. It would only take a second. Then it would be over. He "KNOWS" this. Finally it resulted in Chef having to open his mouth and pulling at the same time. Thankfully that sucker came right out and Monkey could relax. Of course within moments he was back to being the happy kid he is. *sigh* being a parent is hard.

Makes me glad I chose to let him have Laughing Gas at his next dentist appt. Maybe I can bring some of that home for the next loose tooth. LOL

Too stinkin' cute! How old are kids when they start losing teeth? I have no idea and hadn't really even thought about this till you mentioned it the other day. LOL
