It has only been 5 days since Norah lost her first tooth, but tooth #2 came out too! She was even more traumatized this time. I thought she would be excited to get more money from the tooth fairy. Go figure.
The gloves at bedtime for Lucy – NOT going well! We are 4 nights in and Lucy has SCREAMED every night and naptime! She hasn’t had a nap all week and she is exhausted! Our normally happy child, who never gets mad or angry or grumpy has been a grump all week! She is in her room right now crying and yawning and crying! I’m not sure what to do at this point because breaking Norah’s habit was not this rough! We have even tried laying with her, but she tosses and turns and cries.
If anyone is interested, the Mrs. America pageant in on right now – online. My friend, Andrea won!
I know I just posted a couple of days ago that Norah had a loose tooth, but it came out ALREADY!! She was incredibly traumatized by it. She was in the basement playing and came up crying hysterically! I just knew that her tooth came out!
Remember this? We didn’t have much luck with Lucy last year – she screamed and would sleep or nap. We decided that she was too little to give up naps so we stopped putting gloves on her after a couple of day. We decided to try it again with Lucy. My main reason for doing it now is that the girls get sick much more often than some of their friends because they always have (had – in Norah’s case) their fingers in their mouth. Okay, ALWAYS is probably an extreme, but Lucy does suck her fingers a lot!! I am a little obsessive about hand washing – I even make them wash hands every time they touch a library book.
