The proper way to lose a Tooth





Shaelyn and I were heading out this morning and I told her to brush her teeth good. She had to go to the dentist today to get her cavity filled and I explained that she probably had that cavity because she didn't brush good enough. A few kids she knows have lost teeth lately, and she wants to also. So she asks me, "So my teeth will come out if I don't brush good?" like it's a good thing. I can just see the wheels spinning in that brain.
Sometimes, I know she's thinking way too much.

By the way, the dentist said she did great. Hopefully we won't have to be back for another 6 months.

Kids are funny! The wheels in their brains certainly turn at a different speed don't they? love it!

Oh Shaelyn - I can just see what she's thinking too! Suddenly she's going to be requesting all sugar snacks and never brushing her teeth! :)

It's amazing what kids come up with. It's even more amazing how mothers are able to read their little minds!

Yes, yes, yes...kid´s logic is the way to go!! It´s so sweet and can be so off the wall but it´s soaked in innocence! Lovely! I hope she decides that it´s not a good idea to not clean her teeth....
