The trouble with teeth....

Is that this one has trouble loosing them!

They wiggle and waggle and get loosey goosey.
But they don't. fall. out.
Of course, she doesn't actually try to get them out either!

So, she hasn't' actually lost that many teeth yet. 
As a matter of fact,
 some of her permanent teeth
 simply gave up on her ever pulling the baby teeth,
 and grew in behind them! 

Now she has two rows of teeth....kinda like a shark....only different

I beg!  I plead!
 I'm ashamed to admit it....okay, I'm not really,
 but I should be, because I've even been known to offer a bribe, y'all!

She won't bite pull!

Daddy decided to take matters into his own hands.

Oh yes he did!

Much to someone's dismay.

And that produced much drama.
Weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. 

Is that a tear I see?  No?

A dangling tooth really must come out!

And, it did!

Two days later, she lost the baby tooth to right of that big ole front tooth.
 Sucked it right out of her head while doing her Math!

See, math is dangerous!

The other trouble with teeth....

Is that if you are related to me in any way.....

You are going to need braces!

Guess what that means?

Yep.  Twin boys that look like their Mama = two in braces this year!

We had some impressions taken a few days ago. 
You know, so we could see the damage up close.
Because that is what every Mama wants, right?
To see what their gene pool has caused!

Pray for us y'all!
Isabel has two more loose teeth.

Plus also, I had the fabulous luck to come across a joke site that had this for the title of a joke list:

 And, now I'm worried!

oh dear. I just have to say, I feel your pain. Seriously. I too have a crying child(about the same age) who would NOT wiggle her own teeth out. She cried , sobbed, wailed. well, you know. Anyway, finally the first tooth litterally just fell off the top of the gums because the one under it PUSHED the thing out! They must have all been sort of holding each other in, because once the first one came out, they all started falling out left and right.(literally) Her brother teased she was going to make a killing off the tooth fairy but would not be able to eat! And I too have some odd gene. Any kid I have genetically brought into this world is going to require braces. Since my oldest is 12, and the youngest of the three has not lost all her baby teeth, we are not starting yet. But soon. So, pave the way??? could you? Good luck to your little girlie. The pictures say a million words!

Oh good gahhhh. I'll send my daughter down to deal with Isabel. Heather yanked hers out before they were even loose...cause she found out there was money involved!! :)

The braces? No sympathy for you there. Todd = one set between 3rd and 5th grade. About $3500. Heather = first a surgery, then two sets, then more surgery, then wisdom teeth out, then a positioning device. About$14,000?? Ryan = one set so far. $4800. Zach?? Forget it. We have no more money. We're broke. Plus he doesn't have but 6 permanent teeth anyway. At 12 and a half. Yeah. Couldn't even get sealants at his last dental visit cause there's nothing to seal.

Lemuel's family NEVER had braces. None of them. Not a one. No fair.
