For the past few days, she's been complaining of tooth pain and constantly showing us her "wiggly teeth." The other night T asked for some tooth gel and then I inquired why. He brought her to me and had me feel the inside part of her gums and there was a hard lump. He wanted me to take her to the Dentist. After further inspection, I looked and saw 2 teeth were just below the surface of the gums. I told her the pain she was feeling was because of the teeth growing in and that her baby teeth would soon be falling out. But, they will quickly be replaced with permanent ones.
But life wouldn't be what I know it to be without drama from Princess K. Cuz yall know she is the only person in the world to lose teeth right? Right! So now she is rebelling, getting mad and throwing tantrums saying she doesn't want to lose her baby teeth because they look so cute. *blink* So every night before she goes to bed, there is drama surrounding her brushing her teeth. I have to put some gel on it to ease the pain, watch her wiggle the lose ones for the millionth time, explain to her what is happening for the billionth time, watch her poke out her lip in rebellion, and then send her on her way. EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT. In the words of Tanyetta, wash, rinse and repeat. I wish these teeth would hurry up and fall out before I do something drastic. Yall pray for me. Q
