Nicole is 7 years old this year. And she has yet to drop any of her baby teeth! This is considered really slow, because she had friends who started when they were in K1!
Well, looks like history is in the making! She has ONE shaky tooth, finally! But what an amazing tooth it is! Let me show you a pictorial. Do focus your eyes on those centre pearlies.
Nicole – March 2010
Nicole – December 2011
Nicole – 17 March 2012 (Can you see the gap…?)
Nicole – 31 March 2012 (That one tooth is overlapping the other, while the gap widens)
And this is today—5 April 2012:
My baby’s teeth moved! Or her jaw grew larger! And in God’s miraculous ways, the teeth just moved with it!
We can’t wait to lay our hands on that one tooth and yank it off. But of course, that would mean holding down a very violent and aggressive 7yr old girl. We checked with the dentist too, and he says it’s her jaw growing, and since no adult teeth is out yet, the gap in between teeth naturally increases! *phew!*
So the tooth fairy continues her wait… … …… Anyone else had teeth move or jaws growing so obviously?
UPDATE – 10 April
The tooth came off! “When I was blowing my nose” . . .
So she wrote her first note to the Tooth Fairy. My oh my… check out her note!
She wants $50 for her tooth, and then she changed her mind and she wanted more. She even wrote down her address so that the Tooth Fairy would not lose her way.
I quickly said, the tooth fairy only comes for your FIRST tooth and never again! As this magical fairy is a bit expensive to keep ALIVE!…Fairy Tales are a bit expensive to upkeep in pragmatic Singapore… hahaha….
