Julia's top front tooth has been quite loose and ready to come out, but she hasn't wanted us to twist or pull on it. She insisted that Mrs. Gunter, one of the third grade teachers at GSES, pull it out. Riley had shared stories with her about how Mrs. Gunter pulls out teeth amazingly without hurting. Julia told us that she wanted Mrs. Gunter to pull it out and she made a plan to go see her the next morning.
I emailed Karen to make sure she'd be okay with pulling her tooth. Julia got up bright and early and dressed herself quickly. Riley had choir so she was already going to school early with me. Julia asked if she could come early so that she could see Mrs. Gunter before the day began. Around 7:00am the girls headed upstairs to her room and asked her to pull Julia's tooth. Karen said it completely made her day that the girls were so excited to see her and to get to help Julia out. It took about 1 1/2 twists and the tooth was out.
Julia looks adorable with her missing tooth. The one next to it is also fairly loose and will likely be out by Christmas.
