Lou's Trip to the Dentist

Lou has a lot of big teeth and a little mouth in which they are all supposed to live. Unfortunately, she had to have two baby teeth removed because the big teeth came in behind them instead of under them. Thankfully her dad was able to take her. I do not do well with teeth. Seriously. I can clean up poo or vomit all day long. I can deal with blood, scrapes and hangnails but if you show me a wiggly tooth, I'm nauseated. I know it's weird. I think I remember the feeling so vividly from when I was a kid and had loose teeth that the memory comes rushing back. I hated having loose teeth. Liked the tooth fairy money but not the feeling of having a body part loose and hanging by a thread. (Insert willies here.)

Anyway, here's the after shot...


and the close up!



She was a champ and back to her usual perky self by the afternoon!

Oh, I loved having wiggly teeth. I liked the way it felt. :-) And, that is a pretty lovely post-dentist smile she was able to produce! LOVE your new header and wallpaper!!!

Awwwwwwww....little cutie. My rugrats favorite part about losing teeth (or havin' them pulled) is visits that night from the tooth fairy. Of course they think having them pulled should be worth double!
