Another milestone today – the boy has now entered the “I don’t have all my teeth” phase. He lost his first one today – here he is posing with it:
I noticed while helping him brush his teeth earlier in the day that there seemed to be a little more space between a few of them than I’d remembered, so I kind of thought that it could be happening soon. At breakfast, he kind of grimaced when he bit down into something, so Mom got a look at things – and said there’s a loose one.
We were in the car, out running errands today, and as we’re riding down the street, he announced he lost his tooth – looks like he just took it out himself. We applauded, he smiled at us, and so we were off to McDonald’s to celebrate this next milestone of growing up.
On an unrelated note, there is no better guilty pleasure than a Big Mac and Fries (especially the fries). Haven’t had either in a long time, and they tasted really, really good.
Bedtime this evening was amusing, after Mom got him all juiced up about the tooth fairy. He fought sleep valiantly, trying to catch a glimpse of this mystical being, but finally had to surrender.
Can’t wait to see him in the morning.
