My eldest daughter lost her first tooth a few weeks back. Unfortunately it was when I was knocking through the extension so I didn't get to see it happen. On Tuesday she was making a fuss about her other tooth and asked me to help (although a little scared).
I decided to go old school on it and got her to thread a piece of string on to her top front tooth. She was understandably nervous, I made sure she shut the door herself though as I didn't want blaming if it hurt!
As she shut the front door she stepped forward with it so it didn't work. The string was still slack.
"I've changed my mind dad, I don't want to do it like this"
And with that she walked away from me.
Still attached to the door.
Out comes her tooth.
Off she runs. It really shocked her!
She was so pleased to take it into school to show everyone and honestly it was one of the funniest parenting moments I've ever had!
Do you remember loosing your teeth as a child? Any funny stories?
