It Finally Happened


After a month of wiggling and jiggling a tooth that I suspect was not really loose to begin with, Spencer finally got it out. At 6 1/2, this is the first and boy has he been waiting (not so patiently) for this date. Being one of the youngest kids in the class, it has been hard for him to sit back and watch while the other children are getting visits from that little fairy right and left. I suspect that is why he has been wiggling that poor little tooth so hard and eating apples like there is no tomorrow. It is out now and, of course, the tooth fairy paid him a visit. What I did not anticipate was Spencer updating us at 3 o'clock in the morning... I must have missed that footnote in the parent manual. I am sure there is more fine print I have missed from that book, but for now we will just focus on getting used to this new smile!

Aw, congrats to him!

And you just highlighted a major difference between first and last borns.

Your Spencer was on a mission. He had a goal. That tooth must come out! He was going to persist until he made it happen! More apples! FASTER!

My Trey had the tooth hanging by a thread for like TWO WEEKS. I was ready to RIP IT OUT of his face. But NOOOOOOOOO! The pain! The POTENTIAL for pain was TOO GREAT!!

Kids...you gotta love 'em!

Hmmm. I don't remember the 3 a.m. in the tooth fairy section of the parent manual either. I'm thinking you just have a very special guy there! Congratulations on that first tooth!
