wiggle wiggle

I never thought I would have such a problem with a wiggly something.

Something as innocuous as a little back and forth motion.

It's driving me mad.

Today I must wonder if I'm cut out for this parenting biz after all...

You see K has a loose tooth (2 actually).

And it's right up front.

And it's wiggling.

Back and Forth.

To and Fro.

Front to Back.

Or so I assume... I've only heard about it. incessantly.

I haven't seen it.

I really can't look. I can't even glance at it.

Earlier? I asked her which tooth it was and then when she showed me I looked at her forehead.

Please please please... let it come out at school.

eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww ick.

Jo Beaufoix said...

I promise you'll get used to it...
Well I hope you do anyway. Miss E is growing fangs at the moment so we're due for more to drop out. Fun.

Denise said...

remember when they were coming out of your mouth? I hated that.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Foster care is still an option.

mielikki said...

just don't feed her corn on the cob.

DaddyKaos said...

Wrong advice from Mie, go ahead and give something like that, or an apple, then it's out and you are done with it.

stu said...

Paige will play with her loose teeth for weeks. Yes, some take that long.

Good luck memorizing her forehead.


missburrows said...

I'm with DaddyKaos, give that girl an apple.

Kimberly said...

Chewy carmels. More fun than apples.

KiKi said...

gaaaaaaaaaahhhh... there's nothing creepier to me than a loose tooth, so I'm with you on this. I even hated my own, lol.

This weekend my niece wiggled her front tooth for me and I almost fainted. Blood, scars, broken bones I can deal with. It's just something about loose teeth.

Travis Erwin said...

Sneak in while their asleep and yank the sucker.

holly said...

oh yeah! i associate corn on the cob with teeth out. everytime i went loose my mom would force corn on me. i would welcome the corn because my dad was fond of saying 'i'll just take a piece of string, tie it to a doorknob....'

yeah, my dad. such a charmer.

mielikki said...

well if Cami faints and K is there with a piece of corn, caramel or an apple with teeth stuck into it, it is all on your heads :)
send the hard/sticky food to school with her for lunch...

stephanie said...

So with you on this. I can't take it; I just want them gone without me having to see it.

Great poem you got going there - Ode to Loose Teeth (That I Never Want to Know About).

sybil law said...

I am SO with you on this. Do you think it's because we are also such crazy flossers?!
Icky icky.

CamiKaos said...

sybil: I don't know... it's always freaked me out.

stephanie: except I might get sick writing it.

mie: She had taffy the other day... I was hoping.

holly: I'm afraid she won't eat it again if she looses a tooth on it.

travis: YUCK

Kiki: RIGHT!! RIGHT! so gross

mr. Fab: Hmm... ship her off till her wiggly tooth is out... hmmmmm...

kimberly: and then I could eat the caramels... I love caramel

missb: are you gonna come take it out of the apple for me?

stu: she has the cutest little forehead.

daddyk: apples... yes... good...

denise: SO GROSS!!!

Jo: I don't think I will... I mean... eventually it will stop! Right?

bw: yep. eew.

angel: it may be painless but it's NASTY
