Yesterday was Marissa’s 6th Birthday. She woke up excited with a huge smile on her face. I had a lot of fun things planned for our day but sometimes plans change, get adapted or something comes up. Yesterday wasn’t any different. It started like this.
“Mom, my tooth is loose!”
I did NOT expect to hear those words coming out of her mouth. I know she is getting to “that age” but I live in denial about how grown up she is getting. And then I thought, sure it is. I called her to come to me so I could inspect and I quickly found a VERY loose tooth. It must have been loose for days. How did she not notice, how did I not notice. I was not mentally prepared for this to be a part of her birthday. I mean, she is already turning a year older! Do we have to stack loosing her first tooth onto it making it that much harder for a mom watching her baby get so big?!
We wiggled for a bit
Went and ate donuts.
Wiggled a bit more
Went to play at the park.
Came home and, you guessed it, wiggled.
Then Mimi came to the rescue.
With a little bit of drama.
The tooth was out!
Now I get the occasional peek at this toothless grin.
She is growing up way to fast. Slow down baby girl, slow down!
