Well, this finally happened:

Rerun’s top two teeth had been pushed together in the middle, and one was sticking forward and one was pushed backward, as they got looser and looser and the adult teeth started to move in.  After a full week of wiggling and testing, and a couple of times yanking on them, I finally decided enough was enough.  I got the gauze and started REALLY pulling.  The teeth had jammed themselves together in the middle and it took some yanking.

It was definitely more traumatic than the last tooth had been, but I bribed Rerun off with a little extra iPad time.  I was just so relieved that those teeth were out.  This was all on Saturday night.

Then Monday rolled around, and his bottom lateral incisor – which was already quite loose – was hanging by a thread after school.  I stopped him before he even got off the bus because I could see it dangling in place, and right in front of the bus driver, I plucked it right out of his mouth.

Rerun was stunned.  “Hey, that didn’t hurt at all!”

We shall now call him “Toothless.”
