kelby is pretty much a groupie. if her friends are doing it, she want’s to do it too. so when her friends starting losing teeth in pre-k, we started having “loose tooth sightings” all over the place. mysteriously when i checked the loose tooth, it was no longer loose. crazy, i know.
when kelby told me a few weeks ago that she had a lose tooth and did the happy dance that i’ve seen countless times before, naturally i was skeptical. except this time it was legit. i told her to keep wiggling it and maybe in a week or so it would come out. not the case. it simply quit wiggling. i started to question myself. was i also seeing an imaginary loose tooth???
when my mom questioned kelby’s loose tooth progress, we both told her it just quit wiggling. she then asked if i had checked to see if her adult tooth came in behind it. uh, no… the adult tooth isn’t suppose to come until the baby tooth is out… right? wrong. her adult tooth had popped up behind her baby tooth and was preventing her baby tooth to wiggle itself out. i called her dentist the next day and made an appointment to have it removed. apparently i had to have many of my teeth removed by the dentist for the same reason.
