How long did it take?

So my daughter lost her first tooth last night and boy was it a production! After about 2 1/2 hours she FINALLY pulled it out! Does anyone have some stories about the first tooth fears???

  • winkThis goes to the kid.. The lil ones sometimes are too cute... Didn't it pain her when she extracted her tooth like that?

  • I think it was more fear of the unknown than anything. Once she actually pulled it out she loudly exclaimed "That didnt even hurt!" LOL And the tooth fairy was VERY generous for the first tooth! The tooth fairy has gotten a lot less cheap since my days.

  • My daughter let her older sister tie a string to her tooth and the other end to the door. She slammed the door and the tooth came right out. Can't believe she did it, but she'll never do it again! Now she pulls them out herself. Losing teeth doesn't bother her in the least, but she is afraid to get her ears pierced!
