What a Smile



You have to love this smile even with the gaps and crooked tooth that gets hooked on her lip when she smiles. This gnarly tooth which has pushed it's way front and center, has been loose for a while but Gabby refuses to wiggle it. Most kids are excited about a loose tooth. Ahh, the thrill and challenge of pulling and tugging at a loose tooth until...victory! But not my Gabby girl. I think she is hoping it will just fall out. In the meantime, it's driving me crazy. Her gums are swollen and red and it takes her forever to eat. She bites from the side of her mouth so she avoids using her loose tooth. We have offered to help pull it, we've reminded her to wiggle, we've tried bribing but, nothing seems to work.

I guess we'll have to be patient until that stubborn tooth decides to come out. But, even with a snaggle tooth, her smile still lights up the room.
