The New Toothless Girl

Annelie has been on a mission to remove her first wiggly tooth for several days now. As soon as she realized it was more than a teensy bit wiggly, she's been plotting ways to pull it out - most of them involving tying various toys to pieces of yarn and walking around the house with them dangling from her mouth.

"Why don't you just wiggle it?" I suggested.

"Well, I am," she said back. "But first I'm going to tie something heavy to it so it will just fall out."

She has walked around the house with a Barbie dangling out of her mouth. A Littlest Pet Shop puppy dangling from her mouth. A sparkly Snow White dress-up shoe... Her wheelie suitcase....

"Mom, please can you tie my string to the door and then slam it shut?" she begged.

I said no.

"Daddy, pleeeeeease can you tie my string to the door and then slam it shut?" she begged.

Will said no.

Well today, after much plotting and planning and dangling junk from string tied to her mouth, she decided to give the wiggling a go, and about an hour later, came running up to me yelling, "GET A LOAD OF THIS NEW TOOTHLESS GIRL!!!"

Then she struck a mighty fine pose to show off her brand new gap.

And there you have it. My new toothless girl. Pretty dang cute, if I do say so myself!

Happy Monday, folks! I hope your day is just as exciting as Annelie's has been!

Congratulations to Annelie! So, so cute! Can't believe she went to that much trouble to pull it out...then again, maybe I can!

What a cutie! I sure do wish my Cooper was as determined as she is! He's got a tooth that's been wiggly for a month now and he won't mess with it at all. hmmph.

I can't believe she asked for you to pull it out with a door slam! Youch! She's braver than I am!

She's Toothless and you can start calling Gracie Hiccup. Just a thought :) How is it everyone is losing their teeth before poor Amelia. She was last among all the kids we knew of her same age to get them and apparently she will be the last to lose them too. She's so bummed!

Yay! and congratulations to Annelie!! Marisa lost her 1st tooth at 4 and Annelie was so excited to do the same.

She's adorable and amuses me so! Congrats Annelie!
My 9 yr old daughter tied a string to her tooth and slammed the door herself! (my sons would never have the guts to do that!) But it wasn't loose enough. In fact she still has it.

I *hated* pulling my own teeth (and I refuse to do it for my own kids) so I'm mighty impressed by her persistence. Way to go!!
