Amara had a permanant tooth coming in behind her baby teeth on the bottom. Dentist said he wanted to extract them so that the permanent teeth could grow in straight. Amara was a little trooper, she said it didn't hurt at all. Me, on the other hand, I was the one who needed help!!! I was sitting in the corner, reading my paper. At one point, I peeked around just in time to see that LONG root coming out. Okay, I felt a little shaky, but I dove back in my paper and tried to forget about it. Well, everything is over and done, and it's time to go. I stood up and had to sit right back down. I was dizzy, broke into a cold sweat, and had to stick my head between my knees. The nurse was talking to Amara, saw what was going on and hollered to the dentist, "hey, we're about to lose Mom in here!". They started fanning me and put a wet towel on my head. I was SOOOO embarrassed!!! I have nerves of steel, so I thought. I can do all the gory stuff nobody wants to do, I'm a nursing major in school, but I wigged out over a little tooth being pulled!!! I guess cause it's MY kid, I don't know. Anyway, here's her pic...she's so proud of the gaps in her teeth now, she can fit in with the rest of the second grade!!!!
