My daughter has lost three teeth so far and has been complaining about another loose one for the last week. Tonight she comes running into my sewing room to let me know she has “great news”. What’s the news? She says her tooth is coming out tonight. She just knows it. When I asked how she knows it? “I can feel the cramps.”
Now she is child number 5 and I have been the unofficial tooth puller for all of my kids and many area relatives kids. No idea how I became that expert – but I am. Except with her – she is too independent to accept my help. But no child has ever complained of cramps in their tooth…?
Upon further inquiry I believe she meant she can feel the roots. And yes she was correct – that tooth did come out tonight. Now she is missing three front teeth and has lost a total of four teeth.
