My boy has been really anxious and excited to lose his first tooth. A lot of the kids in his class already lost their first tooth and he was feeling a little left out. We had a dentist appointment this past week and neither of us realized that he had a loose tooth. My boy was so excited. Now it is a few days later and the tooth is really loose. The anxiety of loosing a tooth has set in. He is worried he is going to swallow the tooth and he is worried about the blood. It is super wiggly too so I think it is getting a little annoying. He keeps asking me to check to see if it is still in. Has this been a traumatic experience for your child(ten)? I am sure it is a scary prospect for a lot of children. It is also a reminder that my boy is most definitely growing up (whether I like it or not).
