That day was Saturday. That evening, she and Evan were upstairs watching a movie when I hear, "Mom, you won't believe this..." I looked up to find her walking toward me with her hand out-stretched...in that hand...her tooth!!
I was very excited. She wasn't upset or freaked out...she said she pushed it out with her tongue and it felt 'weird'. What a big girl!
Daddy wasn't home when it happened, but we called him to tell him the news.
During her bath, I told her that I needed to tell her some things she would hear now. I said, "People are going to call you 'snaggle tooth'." She looked ultra puzzled by this strange word. I told her that people call every child this name when they lose teeth...they aren't trying to be mean, they are being funny and they think you're cute.
She was quite amused with this information...and then daddy walked in. The very first thing he said..."Hey snaggle tooth!!!" She busted out laughing...and I was relieved that I had just prepared her for that.
Our baby is growing so fast...next up...kindergarten!
