jasper has one of those dangly front teeth. to date we have avoided those teeth. i am desperately grateful that neither seb nor alice had loose teeth that were flicked around with abandon.
to be fair, jasper doesn't play with his loose tooth much, mainly because he is scared of the pain. (have to LOVE that brave boy of mine!)
this morning he was exploring the tooth and he declared, "the vines aren't ready to let go."
i asked if he meant the root and in typical jasper fashion, he shrugged.
(BTW - jasper has changed his name to peter).
alice is sleeping over at a friend's house tonight. for several reasons, i am missing her.
the other three were all out at inspiration lake while i was at the doctors and at another appointment, and i was ever so happy to see them when they walked in. serafina immediately had a play bath, then did a bit of reading while sitting on my lap. peter and seb played on the computer, then we had sweet and sour meatballs, rice and broccoli for dinner. MC should be coming home soon.
peter is complaining that it is taking him a long time to eat and that he shouldn't have to eat vegetables. i note and comment that he manages to eat dessert quickly and all i get is a grin.
would it be bad if i waited until jasper was asleep and then pulled out his tooth? i mean, it would be bad if he KNEW it was me, but what if he didn't? his teeth have shifted in his mouth. the front two are protruding, and over to the side. there is a massive gap between the front tooth and the side tooth. he looks like the village idiot and not in an endearing way.
tonight is a light out night, and if i could only get MC to agree, one of us could hold the torch while the other pulls out the tooth. is this really bad?
depending on responses, i will let you know tomorrow what we do.
