After more than a month of waiting, Little Red Riding Hood finally lost her second front tooth! The tooth had hung so long by one root that the gum was starting to grow over it, so we decided that it really needed to come out. It took lots of cajoling, ordering, and her brother's bribe of a roll of pennies to convince our little drama queen to let big brother pull it out. It came out with the lightest touch and more tears than a shot!
Timothy giving her a makeup hug after pulling it out. She calmed down pretty quickly, once she had a roll of pennies in her hand. She stopped mid-cry, in fact, and said, "Thank you, Tim."
Check out the new gap in her smile. Now she will have to learn the song, All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth!
We celebrated the loss of her tooth with our traditional ice cream cone for the whole family. We tried out a new place which had many unique ice cream flavors. We tested the maple syrup and bacon, coconut swirl, and black cherry fudge, but settled on our old favorites. Everyone had either peanut butter or else cookie dough.
