I mean, just two weeks earlier he had lost his third tooth and although this little guy was pretty loose then, it just wasn't ready. He kept at it through and then one day while I am sitting in a meeting I get a text from Justin with this picture...
He had lost it at school. & can we just take a moment and acknowledge the GAP! Holy Batman.
When I got home I asked if anything exciting had happened at school and how his day was and nothing. Justin tried coaxing him along and he still wasn't biting---pun intended so I just came out and asked him, "Did you lose anything at school today."
"My tooth. I just twisted it and it popped out, Mom."
No worries, I did what any responsible parent would do--raided his piggy bank and "borrowed" the three extra bucks I needed and we had one pretty happy kiddo the following morning.
