That was about seven months ago.
Those teeth are just a teeny bit more wobbly than they were before. He is sad because he thinks every other first grader has lost their teeth. He even knows a few Kinders who have lost a few. Today he told me he is worried that Elise will lose her teeth before he will. And that may be a valid concern. He cried. I hugged. I told him when he is 90 all of his friends will be crying because they will be losing their teeth again and his adult teeth will be younger and healthier. I tried to make him feel better by telling him it is because he is so healthy and strong that his baby teeth are able to last longer. But mostly, I just hugged him because I know no matter what I say, he still feels sad that he is feeling different and left out of the tooth fairy action. So...we will just keep wiggling those little, slightly wobbly teeth and hope they loosen up soon. And we'll keep on hugging and maybe crying a little more but in a few months....hopefully we will have a boy with a funny looking smile.
