It seems like teeth always want to come out when kids have already been sent to bed. At least, it seems to be the case with my kids who like to procrastinate bedtime. It only took a few minutes and her tooth was out. I was impressed that there weren't tears and squirmish behavior. The tooth was ready, and it practically fell out.
After rinsing her mouth, she quickly drew a picture for the Tooth Fairy, and then put the picture and her tooth under her pillow. She went right to sleep, with a smile on her face.
