Gap-toothed Girl

Last night over dinner, E's tooth was literally hanging by one corner. She was having trouble chewing, but when we tugged on the tooth, there was a little twinge, so she didn't want us to pull it. She even got a little teary-eyed at the prospect of losing it. So we said she could "keep" her tooth for one last night, and that today it would come out. This morning I couldn't stand to see it dangling any more, so I asked her if I could pull it out for her. She agreed, and bravely let me take a little pull, and Pop! It was out. She was quite fine about it coming out, and has enjoyed drinking beverages through a straw in the gap. Tonight the tooth fairy will visit our house again!!
