There is one sensitive subject that Boo doesn’t like to talk about, but when it does come up…there are sometimes tears involved.
In Boo’s kindergarten class, they asked everyone the same questions every day.
Did anyone lost any teeth the night before. Did anyone have any wiggly teeth?
Boo would never raise her hand. There were a couple that were in the same boat as her at the end of the school year, now there are only two. Boo and one of her friends.
Boo’s cousin has lost four teeth, three had to be pulled, but one came out on it’s own. She already has all four permanents coming in. She is one month younger than Boo.
Hunter is loosing them left and right, and she gets mad when he looses them here. She wants to loose a tooth, and patience is not something she has.
We have read books. We have talked to the grandma’s, aunts and teachers. The dentist tells her time and again that it is normal, but she doesn’t care. She wants to loose a tooth already.
What else can I tell her? What can I say that makes it easier for her?
