Asher had finally gotten another loose tooth. He had lost his first 2 teeth last summer, & since then, all his teeth had remained solid. We tried to convince him to pull his tooh, or to let us pull his tooth, but he always refused saying that it would hurt. I even tried to coax him into pulling it out on his birthday, “Wouldn’t it be cool to lose your tooth on your birthday?” He remained steadfast, “No.”
What finally convinced him to pull his tooth? It was nearing the end of the school year, & his teacher had little gift bags she would give to students when they lost their teeth. He didn’t want to miss out on getting his gift bag, so he ripped the tooth out on the bus on the way to school.
