My oldest kiddo....he who cannot tolerate a skinned knee so well, or a splinter in his finger, or really even the slightest scratch...has yanked out one of his teeth (again). This is the 3rd tooth he has lost, and the 3rd tooth he has yanked out on his own. I find it so funny that he can pull his own teeth! I also find it funny that at 8 years old, he has only just lost his 3rd tooth! He has about 8 loose teeth though, so if they start falling out close together, we may have a problem!
Can you see how the remaining top tooth now has space on both sides of it. It's kind of funny (and VERY country) looking!
Second news I am excited about tonight is this: http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20100629/ARTICLES/100629642
She is going to make a difference in so many families lives in our area. The lack of a pediatric surgeon at our hospital was the #1 reason Riley had to go to Duke. Knowing what I know now, I am not so sure I would not have preferred him to go up there anyway, with all the other experts up there, but still...so many kids have to be transferred to Duke or Chapel Hill for relatively more minor issues, that our hospital can more than handle with a peds surgeon on staff.
