Simple Sunday – Just Google It!

Carter has his very first loose tooth!  My youngest son, the baby of the family.  Soon the landscape, the morphology of his sweet little boy face will forever be changed with the loss of his first baby tooth.  There will be for a short while, oh the shortest of whiles, a gap.  The gap will quickly be replaced by a solid reminder of the passage of time and Carter’s movement forward towards adulthood.

Carter first loose tooth

The day after tomorrow it will be picture day at his school.  Carter’s kindergarten picture.  Will he still have that tooth or will there be a gap in his sweet and charming smile?  I do not know.

Tonight as he was wondering about the number of tooth fairies and how each one knows where to go and whose tooth to collect, he was getting frustrated by my vague answers, his great problem solving mind presented.  With authority he strode towards our computer, looked back at me and asked, “Why don’t you just look it up?”  Oh dear.

Some things just can’t be Googled.

    this is a huge rite of passage, and just some advice from a tooth fairy with experience, if the tooth fairies fall asleep before they are scheduled to make their appearance, when everyone wakes up surprised in the morning, it is because she has hidden the reward somewhere in the house and wanted to make it a game of hide and seek. a good backup plan when fairy has been overtired )

    Oh, that’s a challenge! My kids have never asked me to Google the tooth fairy or Santa or anything like that. Hope you were quick on your feet! (I bet there’s a library book!) But hey, loose tooth, yay!
