My baby is growing up. Macy has been complaining of a sore tooth for the past week. I thought it must be a cavity. Oh well, it is a baby tooth and we are going to the dentist in a couple of weeks. No biggie. I finally decided to take a closer look at this sore tooth. Turns out it is NOT a cavity...it's a LOOSE TOOTH!!!! Macy is 6 years old and hasn't lost any teeth yet. As a baby she was slow to get her baby teeth and so she is slow to lose her baby teeth. After discovering this new "looth tooth", I decided I should check the others, too. Turns out all four top teeth are wiggly. Holy crapoli!!!
She is totally excited about the fact that she is about to lose four teeth because she is going to make a lot of money. I am strangely sad about it. I feel more sad about losing these little teeth than I did when she started kindergarten.
It is going to be strange when her big, grown-up teeth grow in. I can't imagine her with my big chompers. A friend of mine once told me my teeth looked like big Chicklets.
Tonight, Sean discovered that her two bottom teeth are loose as well. She is going to have a toothless grin for school photos next month. OY!!
Speaking of teeth, if you have a sweet tooth you would love Sean's blackberry/blueberry tart. Sean and the girls went blackberry picking along the trails by our house. Then they backed this yummy tart from scratch.
Hope you have a sweet weekend.
