All I want for Christmas

L's top left tooth has been loose for (what seems) forever. I have tried to bribe her to get it out because it is completely disgusting and she isn't doing a good job of brushing the teeth around it since it hurts. I went so far as to offer: $10, allow her to adopt another of her Webkinz, and the final offer was to buy her an American Girl doll for Christmas. Extreme I know for just a tooth, but you haven't seen what it was doing to her mouth/other teeth.
Last night I was getting ready for bed while Tug checked on the kids. While I was brushing my teeth he ran into our room half hiding half laughing. I asked:

R: What's going on?
T: I did it, I pulled the tooth out.
R: What? Where is it?
T: laugh laugh laugh
R: Do you have it in your hand?
T: No, it landed on her.
R: What? Did she wake up?
T: I don't know. I tugged it, it popped out, I hid then ran.
Well Tug went to go check on the girls again only to find the tooth was actually still in L's head. So, he wakes up both girls (since they sleep together) to tell L to check her tooth. She starts crying because she doesn't want to pull it out. We are lying to her saying she must have hit it on her pillow while sleeping and that it looked really loose and to go check it. I don't know what happened in the end because I left her room, but I do know that she was crying, her mouth was bleeding and she went back to sleep tooth still in.
This morning she finally did it, though there wasn't much left to do. Oh, and I don't think she knows what her father actually did...we will just keep that tidbit to ourselves.
And because one child can't possibly have their picture alone

6 people are laughing with me:
