All she wants for her birthday is to loose her 2 front teeth

Did you get that play on the Christmas song? Anne got her teeth really late. She didn't get a single tooth til she was 10 months old and at 18 months she still only had four. Despite that, she has lost them really early! She lost her first tooth several months before sure turned 5. That was about 14 months ago and since then she has lost 4 more, with one hanging on by a thread. So by her birthday she'll have lost a grand total of 6 teeth in just over a year!

Which brings us to the picture. If you're squeamish, look away. The thought of losing your teeth grosses me out so much. Can you imagine anything worse then slowly losing your teeth one by one? Ugh. Thankfully we don't think like that as (near) 6 year olds. Yesterday Anne lost her first top tooth. The one next to it is hanging by a thread. If you can enlarge the picture, you can see. We've tried pulling on it but it's hanging fast. I'm sure it's days are numbered to only a few left. Pretty soon my little nearly-6 year old is gonna be completely toothless!

EEEEWWWWW! I'm grossed out too. And the fact that you kept using the phrase "hanging on by a thread" did not help. Yuck! :)
