Hillbilly Tooth

Oh my dear lord!  My sweet little love has had a tooth ferociously jutting out for weeks now.  I've politely requested that she push it back into place, but she insists that it is quite impossible.   I'm certain I shriek a little inside each time she smiles my way.  And the irony is not missed on me that next week she has a dentist appointment.  There was a tooth hanging by a string at the last visit, and the dentist offered to gently tug it out but to no avail.  That tooth managed to hang on for several more weeks.  I give up.  But this too shall pass. :)

It's only truly hillbilly if she can whistle through it!!

It sounds like she's expressing her individuality and autonomy over her own body, just letting that toot hang. You are a saint of a mom to just let her do it. It's not pretty now, but it will pay off in the long run.

(so far so good with my own independent children grown to teenagers. knock on wood)

Shocking she doesn't want the tooth fairy to come earlier than later!
