When we reached home, true enough the Ang Pow packet was placed on the book rack and deep inside the packet is her little incisor….. I later found out MIL extract the tooth by one single pull using her fingers wrapped with a handkerchief (so that her fingers can be secured to the incisor). Little blood came oozing from the gums and things got back to normal in matter of minutes.
I remembered my grandmother used to tell me that she pulled a lot of her grandchildren’s teeth by tying the defective tooth with a thread and tie the other end of the thread to a door knob, the tooth will came off when she slam the door hard……… ee sounds scary…. I don’t recall her pulling any of my teeth (what a relief)… most of my milk teeth came off by their own without much hassle :D
