Ben and Noah tend to hold on to teeth longer than most. While a lot of kids in Kindergarten have gaps in their teeth, my boys never did. Emily did though. Noah's been wanting a wiggly tooth for years and it finally happened about a week ago. Then yesterday after school, he was eating a banana and his tooth came out. He was so excited and I'm so glad I was there to see it.
If he's anything like Ben, he'll lose teeth in rapid succession, which means the Tooth Fairy better stock up on ones. He got $2 for his first tooth. After that, I think it goes down to $1. I don't remember what she does, but she did sprinkle glitter all over my counter. Those darn fairies are so mischievous!
This is when we seem to notice the biggest change in how our kids look. It's not the gaps, but the appearance of adult teeth that changes their whole face. They stop looking like babies and start looking like little adults. But, this little guy will always be my baby!
