Possum's Tooth

We experienced a first around here today....the first time to pull a tooth!
Possum has been wiggling this little tooth around since last Friday. While taking a phonics test this morning he tells me to look and what I saw almost made me sick! His tooth was sticking straight out. It was just too much for me to see. I tried to convince him to pull it on out because I knew that it couldn't be connected by very much. He did fine until he saw and felt the blood. Then he was done and pushed the tooth back down into the socket. I did the only thing I knew to Nurse Netta! She has come to my rescue more than once in the six years Possum and Squirrel have been around.

Nurse Netta rushed right over and quickly (literally in like a second, I told you the tooth was just hanging there) had the tooth out.

Possum was super excited! Wow! Where has the time gone? I can't believe my little baby boy has lost his first tooth. This is one of those bitter sweet days.
