This is a problem...

After several attempts to pull this bugger; I've finally resigned to the fact that we may have to ask a professional to rid us of this unsightly tooth. Initially, it was funny that Everett could push it perpendicular to his gums. He thinks it's hilarious to grit his teeth and nearly (but unsucessfully) pop the tooth out. I gag everytime I look at him and that can't be good for his self-esteem. After one week of "look at this, Mom," I think I might hog tie him and knock him in the mouth with a hammer pluck it out.

This is his first time to lose a tooth; he was shown up by his baby sister (who swallowed her first tooth, then popped the other out this summer in the pool--no pulling needed). Right now he has four loose teeth, I don't think I can bear it...gag.

Great photo. That needs to be framed. :) Just don't put it in the kitchen. You might vomit.

My 9-year-old is about to have 2 baby teeth pulled b/c he has a shark row of permanent teeth growing behind them.

Aren't baby teeth so very lovely??

Just imagine my situation being a media specialist at an elementary school...all day long..."Mrs. Day, look at this!" Gag! Loose teeth! They are so excited though.
