Little one still hadn't lost one tooth. All his friends have and we are constantly nodding 'yes' (bad, naughty lying parents) to his constant questions, "is this one wobbly?" Well, a big tooth had grown behind one of his little bottom teeth and the little baby tooth had to come out, as it was never going to come out on it's own (I did not know that the big teeth have to come up under the baby ones and snap their roots in order for them to become wobbly - lessons in wobbliness!).
"Now?...... can you make it wobbly now?", little one asked. Dentist looked at me, me at her and we agreed, lets do this while the mood is good.
He didn't even flinch. Wasn't even aware there was a needle, as the word was never mentioned. While the needle pump was working it's magic, he put his little hand up. Everything stopped and he asked, "is it wobbly yet?"
Big brother stood right next to the dentist and watched everything. "I need to watch this, as I am going to be a cardio-thoracic surgeon"..... even the pliers bit. Crack!
I sat in the corner and played with the finger puppets in the toy box. I was a mess.
Big tooth has already moved forward and 'little one' is $3 richer.
Playroom (4th bedroom) - Before
Could only photograph the window that day. The rest of the floor was COVERED in Lego Bionicles. I almost broke my ankle on one. Still have to furnish this room. A challenge, as the boys just love to spread out here with all their toys. I think we might go with a corner armchair and ottoman, a media unit and TV and just more giant floor cushions. Currently, there is a desk in one corner where little one sits 'to work' while big one is 'electric guitaring' in the other corner.
