So we made an appointment to come back and have them pulled later that day. He was so excited! what a nut. So we went back and they explained to me what they would do and that it would be a pretty easy extraction since the teeth were so loose already. They would give him some nitrous oxide and then apply some numbing gel and pull. They also told me they would like him to go back without me. I let him know I couldnt go with him and he said "why not?" and I said "Im not allowed" and he said "ok!" so brave. He went back and about 20 minutes later he came out with 2 less teeth. He proudly smiled a very cute new toothless grin and showed me his teeth. He didnt cry and they said he was very polite. I was a proud mommy. We got a balloon and went for froyo. Nolan was very strict about keeping the gauze in his mouth and would pop it back in after each bite! We stopped and got him some Motrin for when the numbness wore off and he was fine!
He put his teeth under his pillow and at 3:26 this morning came running into our room yelling "mom! dad! the tooth fairy came and she brought me a wallet! and an electric batman toothbrush!" It was pure innocence and I loved it. When he saw the 2 dollar bills in the wallet he exclaimed "im RICH!"
