Conversations with the Kidlets

Bud: Mom, if your hands are the dirtiest part of your body how are you supposed to pull out a loose tooth?

Me: Well, you could wash your hands right before you try to pull and then your hands would be clean.

Bud: That sounds like a good idea, but Adam P in my class always puts his hands in his mouth and I KNOW he doesn’t wash them first!

Me: {shudder} Well, when you have a loose tooth you’ll know to wash your hands first!

Babe: Mom, Mom!!! If I wash my hands will I get a loose tooth too?

Me: Sorry Babe, when you have a loose tooth you need to wash your hands before you pull it, but washing your hands does not make your tooth loose.

Babe: Awww man!

I don’t know if I should be concerned that my stubborn three year old wants to lose a tooth like her big brother. I fear she’ll take matters into her own hands. 



  1. Omg! She's totally gonna start ripping out her teeth! Especially after she figures out you GET MONEY for it!
