Do you notice anything different?
It might be a little hard to tell because we’ve been waiting so long it doesn’t necessarily appear that anything is missing. But there is something a little different about Naomi.
This evening, she came over and said, “Mom, this just came out of my mouth”. In her hand was her tooth. The tooth that has been loose for weeks. The tooth that took so long to come out, the permanent tooth came in behind it and can be seen clearly behind the empty space where the baby tooth previously resided.
When I told her the thing that just came out of her mouth was her loose tooth, her eyes got really big and she said “Finally, I lost my first tooth”. Then she ran thru the house looking for daddy so she could show him her tooth.
After all these weeks of waiting, she has her first tooth under her pillow waiting for the arrival of the tooth fairy.
