“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

A New Sort Of Tooth Fairie
Anna has had this tooth dangling for a couple of months. It distracts me, and I always want to grab it and yank on it.... of course she won't let me. :)
It was so loose that it was sticking out.... so instead of the usual "tooth fairie" incentive, I knew there was this little cat diary she wanted. I told her, if you get that tooth out in 5 minutes, we'll see about getting that cat diary. It was a SMALL price, compared to taking her to get it pulled. She emerged from the bathroom with success! The tooth behind that is loose too. She is working on that one, for a trip to the dog pound. :) She likes to pet the dogs and cats.
There is a tooth pushing in behind those two teeth, and when it comes in, we will be headed to the orthodontist for the dreaded braces.
Anna is missing a tooth next to her front teeth on either side. We were told this when we took her to the dentist for a check up. So, we will weigh our options on what to do. They said they can make false teeth for her, or leave things alone and just straighten what she has.
I know there are also dental implants which might be a good idea too, but not until she is full grown. So, we shall see. :)
