After vacuuming, scrubbing toilets, folding laundry, and baking a snack for Jacob's class, I sat down to rest and possibly watch an old, old episode of Men in Trees when my oldest son ran downstairs in such hysterics I was sure something horrible had happened.

Well, to me it was horrible......he has his first loose tooth! Now , he is just a wee baby, how can he be losing his teeth? I am not ready for this......first the teeth, next the driver's license. Why do they grow so quickly???

I am trying really hard to hold it together as he is so excited, but I want to cry seeing that very first tooth that appeared in his mouth will now be the very first tooth to leave it. I cried for hours when he got that first tooth, at seven months, because he was losing some of his there is no babyness to be found and I am so, so sad.

Here he is the day he got that first can't see it, but it was there. Even the poor dog was sad.

Oh. The doggie does look sad, too.

But now you get to be the tooth fairy!

My seven-year-old has lost so many teeth that she looks like a little jack-o-lantern - and she's still my baby. The tooth fairy is wonderful stuff - will she leave glitter with her money?

It's funny how women think children grow up too fast and men don't think they grow up fast enough.

Losing his first tooth already?! That's a milestone they don't tell you to prepared for!
