The Tooth Fairy cometh not until after the trial of your faith

Rose has a loose tooth, and Dean convinced her to let him tie a string around it and yank the string. I was thinking, “Finally he’s got a kid willing to let him try that,” since Ike and Mabel have both resisted. (I seem to have quite a few memories of protecting kids who were being chased around the house by Dean with a string.) But this time Dean used yarn, and it was too thick, and not tied securely enough, and after one failed yank Rose wouldn’t give him a second chance. (He wanted to try again with pliers, but I’m pretty sure he was joking about that.)

Rose said, “You were wrong. You said, ‘It will hurt a little,’ but it hurts a lot!”

Dean said, “I’m sorry. Do you want some pain medicine?”

“NO!”

I intervened. “They call it pain medicine, but really it’s for stopping pain. It’s anti-pain medicine.”

“Oh. Okay.”

    What is it with Dads and teeth? My Dad was always wanting to do the string or pliers thing too. šŸ™‚
