Laura's Coveted Loss
For several months, Laura has bemoaned the fact that she will NEVER lose a tooth. About a year ago, the dentist mentioned that she had a loose tooth. Well, that loose state must have only been detectable by a dental professional, because we certainly couldn't tell, and Laura couldn't even figure out which one to wiggle.
Last month, at her semi-annual cleaning, the dentist mentioned that it was quite loose, and since the permanent tooth was already present behind it, we really needed to get it out of there. She told us to give it a couple more weeks, and if it didn't come out then we should come back in and get some help. I was dreading this, and encouraged Laura to wiggle away, because Laura's very crowded mouth has led to several cavity fillings - translation: far too many visits to the dentist already. Unfortunately, the tooth didn't budge, so this morning we had to brave the office once again. That said, it was a pretty smooth experience (complete with laughing gas and numbing cream), with the added benefit of loosing TWO teeth. Double the Tooth Fairy loot!
As a stroll down memory lane, here's Danny's first tooth loss: http://seemoreseymours.blogspot.com/2012/02/dannys-winning-loss.html

So once again, Laura is blazing an entirely different trail...
