A Hunger Strike (of sorts)
Pete won't eat. Her tooth on the top in the front on the left is really, really loose. Dangling-by-a-thread loose. It happened last night near the end of dinner. She shrieked like someone had put worms in her underpants. She screamed, "What are you going to do?! Are you going to take it out?!" and I said, "I'm not going to do anything until you calm down," and she said, "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!" Then she calmed down and admitted that she wanted it to come out because "it feels weird," but Husbandguy tried and she squealed and they both gave up before it came out. I was hoping she'd wake up with a hole in her smile and we'd never see that tooth again, but it's still there. So this morning we tried soft foods for breakfast, but she says she can't even swallow yogurt because "it feels weird." I know she's not going to starve or anything, but I'd really like her to have something to eat because she's like me and Moomie and gets very grumpy when she's hungry. Moomie suggested that we try something body-temperature rather than cold - maybe that won't feel as weird on her
snaggle loose tooth. We haven't yet, but we're going to... Just as soon as I figure out what...
