The tooth fairy....
I picked Tiana up from her mothers house yesterday and couldn't help but notice that her front left tooth was hanging from a string. I have to say that it was a bit nasty! I picked her up at around 1 o'clock and I didn't have to work until 6, so we had some time to try and get it out before work. I didn't want her to accidentally swollow the tooth! She was really brave, she let me push it, pull it, yank on it, but nothing really worked.
We arrived at teche's house(baby sitter) just before six and told her to watch T and if she notices the tooth fall out to save it for me. Went to work............picked T up just before 10pm, no luck the tooth was stubbornly hanging on for dear life! Teche and Chuck tell me that it would be a good Idea to put some ambasol on her gums and then just yank the sucker out! I may look like a big tough guy, but on the inside I am a big baby when it comes to yanking teeth out of my 5 year old. I reluctently take accept some ambasol that Teche and Chuck give me for her tooth. One more stop until we can go home. Kristen(GF) is without a car until tuesday, so me and the T'ster have to go to her work place and pick her up. When we get there Kristen walks out with an apple; now why didn't I think of that? We start are 15minute drive home from picking Kristen up and 5minutes into it I hear a loud yell from the back seat......."I got it out!" "yaaaaaaa BaaaByy!", T is such a ham! We quickly call as many people as possible and tell them the great news, "T's black last tooth finally fell out!". (If you remember about a year ago T fell on her front teeth and they turned black) We got home and put her tooth in a safe place and went to bed................But there is more!
I woke up to "daddy, daddy, daddy, look........" Tiana was holding up a tooth... I try to shake off the morning and focus on what she is holding. "T I know you lost your tooth last night!"....... "No daddy, this is the bottom one!"
Tiana woke up this morning with her bottom tooth missing! That is so wierd! Two teeth in one day! To celebrate we played hooky from school and I took her out to breakfast at my new job. She had Chocolate Chip pancakes! It is about 7:30 pm and I am writing this sitting out on the pool deck watching T swim with a couple of the niegborhood kids...(Just took the pic of T in her swim suit) All in all I think we had a pretty fun day!
Kristen and I are going to Kings landing tomorro to do some caneoing, I'm gonna bring my camera and I'll write about my adventures tomorro night!
