Two down, 30 to go

Isabel finally lost the second bottom tooth. The second tooth was loose for ever,in the last month the tooth was just dangling there. I tried to be patient. I tried brives, nothing was working. The other night I was so tired of it even looking at it, that I finally MADE her pull it out.

At first I tried to let her pull it out herself, but it wasnt working. She cried, and then she cried some more and still nothing. Finally (I had been planning this actually) I pulled out some knitting yarn (light weight), coated it with some oragel and quickly put it around her tooth before she could change her mind. She noticed the taste of the oragel on her tongue right away and just as she started to protest- I pulled it.

Out came this tooth ... and then blood. A lot of it. Luckily I had a red wash cloth handy and I was able to make her rinse her mouth before she could see anything. What a relief.

*********
I also posted a video of Issy pulling out her first tooth. I have been dying to post this video for a while, but due to some technical difficulties, I was always unable to do. The video is priceless. Isabel is very much afraid of blood. So this explains why she refused to let us pull the second on out. After this experience, I am not looking forward to seeing anymore loose again. Enjoy.

I know what you are talking about with the tooth just dangling. My daughter's tooth was just begging to come out. When the second was ready she practically yanked it out. Stopping in from SITS! Have a great day!
