The Tooth
















She bit into a sandwich, and it broke off. Now she wants to keep it forever.

















We call Grammie and Grandad and Gramma and Grampa. "Is Grandad there too?" she talks loud when she's on the phone.  "If you come over you can HOLD it if you want," she smiles wide, "Yup." She chatters over to the window, twirls mid-stride, the phone still cradled to her ear. And as she steps out each detail, her smile grows and her voice swings wider and wider. She's all glee.

Oh! My girl will be so happy for her. We're on pins and needles waiting for our surprise in a sandwich. Hugs to your sweetie!

Losing my first tooth was a big deal for me. Initiated into the "older kids". Milestones, firsts, the things you NEVER forget. :)

So precious that she wants to keep it. My kids do too. We aren't big into Santa or the Easter Bunny but the Tooth Fairy was a favourite of mine as a child. However, sometimes, they just can't seem to let go of their treasure once it falls out!

Such a fun milestone. You can feel the glee through that huge smile!

P.S. That second photo is bokeh-licious. :)

Bokeh-licious, why I actually had to look it up. :) Thanks! For the new word and the compliment. Craig actually took that one.

I thought I made up that word. Then I just googled it and found it in the Urban Dictionary. Hurt my pride a little, teehee. :)

Oooh, great work, Melissa.

And did she bring up the Tooth Fairy? I clued her in that it might be worth some big bucks!
