The Race Is On
Tootle is about to lose her first baby tooth. It has been very loose for weeks and now I'm not sure how it is holding on and the adult tooth is starting to push up behind it. The question is: will she lose the tooth in the next two days before she turns 6 or will she be 6 when the tooth fairy visits her for the first time? I've tried wiggling it out and tying dental floss around it and pulling without luck. I may try again tonight. I know that I won't do what my mom did to me: tied a string around my tooth and a nearby closet doorknob and then closed the door. It worked but of course scarred me for life.
