She had been bothered by her one bottom tooth for a couple of weeks. She would wiggle it for a while and then forget about it. Go back to wiggling it a day or so later and stop out of frustration.
Yesterday, Holly came home from school and was playing with her dolls. When couldn't get her dolls clothes on, out of frustration she pulled up her shirt and bit down. With that, her loose tooth got even looser and then finally after a few tugs and pulls, it came right out.
A few hours went by and we were heading home from the store. I could hear the panic in Holly's voice as she said, "Mommy, I can bend my other tooth all the way back. You better hurry so we can get home." I pushed the speed limit another 5 miles per hour wanting to get home just as quick so Matt and Gabby could witness this. Then in a concerned yet surprised tone, Holly said "It just came out!"
A child's smile warms your heart. Even more so when there's a few teeth missing.
