Make Me Laugh Monday – What Turns My Stomach

I consider myself to have a fairly strong stomach.

I have changed fully blown out diapers that leave poo up my then-baby son’s back and down his legs, with a stench strong enough to strip wallpaper.

I have cleaned regurgitated sheep poo off of my lovely sitting room area rug.

I have caught vomit in my hands.

But there are few things that make me want to throw up in my mouth like the sight of a wobbly tooth, desperate to come out, bent backwards enough to show me the pulp.

*swallows hard*

Seriously. It grosses me out.

After the nightmare of Boo’s first tooth extraction, there is no chance in hell that he will voluntarily pull out a tooth. He will, however, poke at it endlessly with his tongue, and wiggle it with a finger.

This last tooth had actually moved about 1/8″ to the left, and was overlapping the other front tooth. It was also about 1/8″ lower than its tooth next door. Honestly, I don’t know what was holding it in.

Especially once he folded it backwards. *gag*

Thank heavens, the stubborn thing finally fell out. Hello, Tooth Fairy.

Unfortunately, I think the other front tooth is loose now, too.
