Toothless Wonder

My daughter is toothless. Not completely, but her first baby tooth fell out. Considering she was born just days ago, I’m baffled by this turn of events. It was yesterday that we snuggled her into that fuzzy white polar bear suit and took pictures of her snoozing in the car seat the entire way home from the hospital. That tooth just grew in! That proud toothless grin, that little lisp when she says tooth is incomprehensible. I keep staring at her sweet freckled face, trying to figure out how she grew 5 years over night.

It was on Easter that my husband and I hit Walgreens after brunch, buying and then taking 2 pregnancy tests. Not believing our luck, I insisted on a visit to the urgent care for a real test. The permagrin began that day. Don’t get me wrong, we have had our moments and I fully plan to have that painful teenage relationship every mother dreads. But, as we move closer to bringing another daughter into our world, I am feeling especially sentimental. She graduates from preschool this spring, performs in her first dance recital and finds a new way to be independent every day.  I never thought we’d get through the first 6 weeks of breast feeding, I have no idea where this clever, thoughtful kid came from.

The Tooth Fairy spoiled her: $2 + a chapter book about horses. Might be over-the-top, but cut me some slack. I am squeezing every last drop of childhood out of this, and seeing that toothless grin this morning made me swoon. Can’t wait for the Easter Bunny.
