I"m a MAN!

Indiana has been waiting LONG and HARD since Kindergarten to finally and officially graduate to "BIG-kid-Hood" by losing a tooth. He has even gone so far as to try and dislodge one. not pleasant.
So, FINALLY, thanks to a stubborn glue stick, a tooth started to wiggle. For the next few days, he worked on it. BUT, his fear of letting me pull it would not allow for the final blow--it was too harsh and gruesome for him. So, after talking to Grandpa Pead, he learned the new trick of tying dental floss to the loose tooth and the other end to a door and then slamming the door. LESS SCARY!?! apparently. For that very night, I tied one of my super dooper knots, Brent did the door work, and on the third try, BAM! Out it came! (I'll admit, I was a little anxious to watch!) I was trying SO hard to tape it, but couldn't find my camera. So here is the final product. He is now, officially, a man!

Grandpa always wanted to pull mine out with his hands. I guess that his suggestion to you was better. Uncle Alan wanted to take one of Atticus' out with a monkey wrench. WYG Indy!

GOOD FOR YOU INDIANA. I still prefer just pushing the sucker with my tongue until it pops.
