I was recently helping Matthew brush his teeth when he surprised me by telling me his tooth was wiggly (what? already???). I checked and it turned out that his two bottom teeth were loose. He wiggled them for a couple of days, but just when he was getting to that stage where the loose tooth starts interfering with life he came home from school with his tooth number one in a bag!
He had been expressing anxiety about whether it would hurt when it fell out or whether there would be a lot of blood - both things Elizabeth explained were possibilities in her experience and then was quite annoyed with me trying to explain this was not helpful. I was relieved to discover neither were the case!
