Two Front Teeth....

Issy is missing them. I haven't got a picture yet, but she does look odd somehow. The bottom ones fell out but not in the normal manner, they leant further and further forward and the new teeth were nearly fully grown behind them. So she had 4 bottom teeth for some time.

Last night at 11.30pm she came down to say a top one had fallen out, she 'had been asleep but suddenly woke up when it fell out' - likely story! Still at least its school holidays. At 10pm tonight the other one came out. Anyway she doesn't like the whole business of teeth falling out and it's made her feel quite ill. Added to that she's vain and I had to sit with her until 11pm tonight when she finally plucked up the courage to look in the mirror. I'm now waiting for her to go to sleep so the tooth fairy can visit.

She has got odd teeth - she was born with five, all in a row. They came through four or six at a time and she never moaned once. Hettie on the other hand, screamed and created for about 3 months prior to every single one. It was a long painful process.

Other than teeth, we've had a pretty lazy day. Girls managed to complete their jobs again and Hettie had piano this afternoon. Dh was home early and mowed the new grass - first cut. It seems fine though, all growing nicely, no patches anywhere. The dog rolled and rolled on it !! I'm ploughing on with Issy's curriculum, working on a six week block of Saints & Hero's. There's some terrific stories, we're going to enjoy that block.

We're off to the country park with some friends tomorrow, so hopefully the lovely sunny weather will hold.

Kayla did the thing where the teeth grew in behind, too. I'd never seen it before, but I've heard it's quite common.

I'm sure she looks cute. :)

I hope she lets you take a picture. I think kids are so cute with their missing front teeth. I'm sure she wouldn't want to know that my poor daughter was missing her front teeth for nearly a year! We finally found out from the dentist that there wasn't enough room for the new ones to grow in so she had a couple more baby teeth pulled and they grew in within a week after that.

Aaww, Bless her. I've heard of children being born with teeth, but five, wow!
We're picnicing on Friday too,I'll do my fine weather dance. It never fails!!

My youngest DD had the same thing happen with her bottom front two teeth. They stuck so far out they poked between her lips, quite a funny sight.

Ben had the same problem with his new bottom tooth growing behind his old one. Went on for about 8 months so in the end the dentist hooked it out! At least he can brush them properly now! Elle
