How to Pull a Tooth




















Step One: Tie string to snaggle tooth.

Step Two: Dad pulls hard.

Step Three: String breaks, tooth doesn't budge.

Step Four: Mom grabs Jack's burpcloth for better grip.

Step Five: Mom rips snaggle tooth from Claire's mouth.

Step Six: Claire can smile without tearing up her lip once again.


Aren't you glad I'm not your mother? :)

I loved the instructions on how to pull a tooth. Glad to know there are people out there still doing it the old fashion way. I remember having a loose tooth and making the mistake of telling DeAnn about it. She insisted on helping me to pull it out. She tied a string to it and then the other end she tied to her mom's bathroom door and slammed it shut. Scary. I don't remember if it worked. Fun memories.

Claire has the most expressive face! I know that I, for one, am sleeping better knowing that the tooth is out:)

That was so hilarious! Next time just give us a call and Jason can give you some magic "stuff" to rub on her gums so she won't feel a thing! It works great! My grandma used your technique and it always go the job done! Congrats Claire!
