Already Working On Her Wish List

Cora’s decided to get an early start on her Christmas list, and apparently all she wants for that holiday is her two front teeth.

Yep, she lost her second front tooth yesterday.

She would have lost it even sooner but she’s been doggedly hanging on to it for DAYS, intent on losing the thing at school. See, when you lose it at school you get a little plastic treasure chest to put the tooth in, and a sticker that says “I lost a tooth today!” to wear for the rest of the day.

So Cora’s been walking around with that front tooth literally hanging by a dental thread. She went to school yesterday with that tooth hanging crooked out of her mouth, hanging on by one teensy slender root. In fact, she kept trying to shove it back in the socket to make it look straight, and avoided biting into anything that might tip the balance.

Cora got her wish, though, and managed to wiggle it out during lunch. So now my baby’s got that heartbreakingly-grown-up gap-toothed smile.

And all I want for Christmas is my baby back.
