shark girl!

penny complained all through breakfast on tuesday that her bottom front teeth were hurting.  we all stuck our fingers in her mouth to try to move any of her teeth around, but there was nothing doing.  we kept checking to see if there was any food caught in between that might be irritating her gums, and i asked her whether she had bumped her chin or anything durig all of her leaping and twirling at story ballet camp. nope.
this morning (thursday) as we were finishing up our breakfast, penny's eyes suddenly got HUGE and she exclaimed "I can feel my big tooth!"  she ran around the table to show me - and, you guys, penny may actually be a shark.

according to her, this tooth was not there when she went to sleep last night, but it was almost the size of one of her mini teeth this morning.  she is SO EXCITED.  her teeth are still not wiggly at all, but the internet has informed us that they could fall out in a matter of hours.  or weeks.  also, it's hard to see in the photo, but her gum is inflamed next to the one adult tooth - she's probably getting two at once, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if she had two adult teeth by the end of the day.
time to alert the tooth fairy!
