I took all four kids in for their bi-annual tooth cleaning before Christmas. The hygenist came out to talk with me and told me that Karolyn needed to have 6 teeth taken out. I told her we would wait and bring her back in after Christmas because it cost $100/tooth to have them pulled. She has finally managed to get her two top teeth out by herself, only four more to go. She's seven and almost done with second grade, but it seems like all my kids like to keep their baby teeth for an extra long time.
