Teeth (or lack thereof)
For a couple of months now, Pipo's top front tooth has been loose, and it has been driving me crazy. He was constantly pulling at it, picking at it, and twisting it. Last night, it finally got to him, and he tied a string around it and yanked it out. He was beyond happy.
At 11, he has really hit the age where he is self conscious about his looks. He likes having his hair done, he asks if his clothes look alright, he is constantly checking the mirror. The prednisone induced puffiness is really getting to him, so the tooth was just one more thing.
What's amazing to me is that at 11, he is just really starting to lose all these teeth. This poor boy will be in high school and losing teeth!
