What a WIENER!!!!!

After Jakob's Jiu Jitsu class today I got tired of looking at his hill billy loose tooth that was dangling by a thread of meat. He is so petrified of any amount of pain he lets his teeth get like this and STILL refuses to pull it out. Jake wanted me to get him a Vitamin water so I told him if he let me yank that sucker out, I'll get him the water. He started whining and flaking out so I raised the stakes. If you DON'T get that tooth out by the end of today you aren't sleeping in my room tonight (the kids get one night a week to sleep in my room now that Isaak's here so it's my new favorite punishment...hehe). He flipped out after I threatened with that one. Immediately he started tearing up saying I could only have one chance and that PawPaw had about 10 chances and it hurt so bad...blah blah blah. I told him I only needed ONE CHANCE and it would be out. I peacocked (if you don't know what that means, read here #7). He started breathing heavily and the tears were flowing but he let me grab it with a cloth diaper and BAM! It was out in an instant! Right when it came out he started wailing as if I had pulled his eyeball out or something. I thought it was hilarious so I had to take these pictures of my little wiener. Am I a horrible mom or what!? BTW...when Kora started hearing my bargains with Jake, she said, "Hey mom, I'll let you pull out my tooth if you buy me a phone...a REAL one." Oh gracious...

Now that's my brave Jakob. It is OK to cry Jakob. I did too when I was 8 and my Dad pulled out my tooth. It doesn't feel very good. Love PaPa

Have Jake ask Alex about the time I convinced him to tie his loose tooth to a doorknob so we could slam the door. Right before I shut it he got nervous and tried to push me away but accidentally shoved the door and out it came. he cried too.
