This is mostly a blog about police stories, but this one was too good to pass up.
On Monday night, my daughter and I were watching a movie when she told me about her loose tooth. It had been loose for some time, but it started bleeding a little bit and seemed ready to come out.
Based on what she told me and what I saw I said, “It will probably come out tomorrow.”
The tooth bugged her the rest of the night, but it didn’t come out. The next day we hung out because she was on school break. Later on she went to gymnastics practice with no word about the tooth.
I picked her up at 8PM and was driving home when she said, “You lied to me. You said the tooth was coming out today.” She was frustrated with the tooth because it was bothering her.
“Well, I thought it would come out today.” What else can you say to an 11 year old when it comes to a loose tooth?
Right after that she offered me a cookie. I took the cookie and ate it. She took a bite from another cookie and started chewing.
She then leaned forward and put her hand up to her mouth. She turned toward me as she said, “My tooth just came out!” She held up her hand and showed it to me.
See, daddy does know best……
