Corn on the cob and no front teeth *update on Elaina*

Did you know its not an easy thing for a child with no front teeth to eat corn on the cob??
It was the boys idea they knew how hard it would be. I tried to warn her but she insisted....






See she has no teeth up front other then the two at the bottom. She is missing 4 on top and two on the bottom. How does this child eat??? Especially corn on the cob?

Apparently it takes a special trick. You have to shove it to the side and eat with your molars. Hmm much easier said then done....
As you can see McKenzie thought this was very interesting.
There rest of us found it funny, Honestly we were laughing with her, not at her......
See she was doing a pretty good job. Oh but what a mess her face was when she was done.
I just went over to Wendy's blog and Elaina has been release! No answers yet but she is doing better! Mom just has to make sure she stays well hydrated.

Kila said...

LOL, according to my mom, this happened to me--unable to eat corn on the cob one summer due to missing front teeth.

My oldest son can tell you that it's also hard to eat corn on the cob when one entire arm (from hand to armpit) is in a cast!
