Tooth #3

Well, I did it.  This tooth was VERY loose and ready to come out!!!  At first I told Ben he had to do this one, so he got all ready to do it, and then Kobe suckered him into "I want mom to watch" so Ben brings him out to the living room with me and then Kobe said a tearful, "I want Mom to do it" and it was all over.  I was so thankful this one was so loose.  It was SO less pathetic than the first time I pulled his tooth, this one I just grabbed it and pulled and it was done.

If you don't live up here in the Arctic enjoy your weather today, if you are fortunate enough to live up here with us be thankful for your warm car and house!  That is what I keep doing as I watch the temp go from -1 to 0.

"I want Mom to do it" awwww... what a sweet little boy! :) I guess there is nothing like a momma! Sounds like you guys are very cold up there. It seems like the winters are getting longer and colder for you guys.... maybe you should think about moving! lol Love you Leah - hope you have a great day today!

Yay!!!!! Good job, Leah:) and Kobe! How exciting! You will be a pro soon, Leah.
I agree with Linds that maybe you all should think about moving somewhere warm!!!!! Okay, it is in the 30's and 40's here, but at least the sun is out:).
Stay warm. Love you guys!

Good job Leah!! Kobe looks so happy his tooth is out. I imagine he is looking forward to the tooth fairy.

Of course it made me feel good, but kinda bad for Ben-maybe Ben was just happy he didn't have to :)

yes, it is freezing freezing freezing!!! oh, well, we will live. this summer I will be happy - oh so happy. :)

Lindsay, I hope you have a good day too, Love you and miss you!

Cindy, next time you are pulling the tooth :) j/k

Alyssa, 40 sounds like like summer right now :)

& grandma, you need to come back & enjoy the weather with us :)

gram said...

I don't think so. I miss all of you very much but I had my patio door open all day today and sat out on my deck in my cutoffs and was barefoot. We are suppose to be cold Thurs and Fri morning but up in the 70's by the end of next week. Tell Kobe he has the most gorgeous eyes.

Great Job Leah and Kobe!! I am not sure how I will handle that with Brooklyn. Jason is usually better at things like that. I guess we will see!!! =) Stay warm today!! Yikes...windchill is -17 today!!!

you would be surprised how hard it is for big boy fingers to grab onto these tiny teeth! that is why I got stuck doing the first one, Ben's fingers were too big. Mine are the perfect size to grab those little teeth, unfortunately.
