“Did she do it on purpose?” is what I heard come out of my mouth.
“Yes…we were playing dentist!”
“Ha, ha, ha!” is what she heard from me. I thought it was hilarious that they were playing dentist and her sister actually pulled out her tooth.
We had just been to the dentist two days before. The man frowned as he looked in Joy’s mouth and said, “This tooth needs to come out in the next two weeks or you’ll need to bring her back in for me to take care of it.” Joy has been so distraught about the dentist pulling her tooth that it has been her daily prayer request that the tooth fall out before then. So it really was a blessing that the tooth came out, and I’m sure her sister didn’t do anything cruel!
