I knew this day would come

Ok, so upon waking this morning, my son excitedly told me his big news: a wobbly tooth. I knew this day would come. I mean he is 7 years old. It probably should have come sooner than now. However, I couldn’t help but think, “Oh my gosh he is a big boy now!” How did that happen? Where did the time go? How much time do I have left before he gets bigger. I mean just a week or so ago, he announced that he liked a girl. Now he has a wobbly tooth. The next thing you know, he is going to want to borrow the car…Ok breathe!

Whew. That’s better. So my son has a loose tooth. He is excited. I guess I should be too, but there is that little part of me that wants to keep him my little boy. At least I can still go into his room at night and snuggle him close. Even when he has been a stinker all day and has made me want to pull my hair out, I still think of him as my little boy. Now he is becoming a bigger boy. What is this world coming to? Oh my!

  1. So when that loose tooth comes out does your tooth fairy leave dollars, quarters, or sticky candy for more teeth?

    Once when I was a kid, my dad was home when my tooth came out by mom was out of town. Apparently he didn’t have any loose change but he did have JuJu bees candies so he wrote a note from the tooth fairy saying that she was out of change but that if I ate these candies and pulled out more teeth, I could have double my money on the next one.

    It worked.

  2. Honestly, I am not sure what we are going to do. I thought of leaving a dollar. I don’t want to go overboard, but I am not really sure what a tooth goes for these days 🙂 I like the candy idea except we don’t eat a lot of candy around here.

  3. Aww! Too cute! Our first loose tooth experience was traumatic. Michael came running in with the tooth hanging by a tiny sliver of skin! He’s freaking out, I’m freaking out, so finally I just yanked the sucker out ROFL I’m sure yours will go much smoother!
