Memmy is texting his kindergarten teacher. (She’s famous for assisting in this type of situation.)
My little man no longer has Sponge Bob teeth. Now he proudly sports a one inch gap. (Yes, he assessed the gap and proclaimed it to be one inch.) I was really dreading the loss of this tooth. I loved his gap grin. Then I saw this.
I love this grin more! He is so adorable and sweet and young and grown up all at the same time. I couldn’t help but smile at him all day knowing he would smile back. I could have taken 1000 photos of this toothless handsome dude.
His personality is a bit sentimental. He was sad to part with his tooth. For his first tooth, he wrote a note asking the Tooth Fairy if he could keep it because it was so special. Since that worked, he decided to try the same method on this tooth. After 3 tries he decided this was the note to leave.
Then, he went to get his tooth only to remember that he didn’t put it by his bed any of the 7 times I told him to! Lots of tears, followed by a “you really should listen to me” walk through the house, led to a discovery by his big brother and a happy hug from Memmy (just as I was untying the trash bag).
He is now sleeping sweetly with note and tooth under his pillow. Excited to see what tomorrow brings.
