Yeah, I got knitting to tell you about and holiday stuff and all that. I'm just too lazy right now to take the proper pictures.

Anyway, the big news around these parts is Tooth Watch. I cannot believe that that last ding-dang tooth of Gus's is still hanging on. He let me wiggle it the other day, and it took every iota of my willpower not to yank it out on the spot. It is hanging sideways. We've tried plying him with toffee and pretzels - anything to make that tooth come out - but it is still there, hanging by a thread.

It has not spoiled his "new grin", as he calls it, however. Here he is, with Grandpop, this morning after his triumphant Holiday Concert performance at school:

All I want for Christmas is Gus's one front tooth.

It was an excellent concert - spearheaded of course by Gus and the second grade - and your choice of photographs is to be commended.

Oh, I so wish I was there! Remember last year? "I'm wearing two shirts!"

What was the 2nd grade performance?

Love that "new grin!"

That was when he made the "two shirts" comment! I was totally not prepared for the daffodil song!

Tie a piece of string around the tooth. Tie the other end to a doorknob. Have Gus sit in a chair some distance away from the door. Slam the door shut. Have a towel handy.

Worked for me when I was eight. Happy holidays!

kel - you are not the first (or even second) person who suggested this, which amazed me! I thought only the Three Stooges did it, but apparently more people than not have done it (or had it done to them). He loves the Stooges...I wonder if I could spin it that way....

A tried and true method, Diana. I had a tooth removed that way when I was a little boy (back in the Dark Ages). Nobody ever gave it any thought; it was just the way things were done.
