• First Tooth.

    Monday, February 22, 2010

    I find it so interesting how a mother can find her life so wrapped up in a little thing called…teeth!

    It starts with that first tooth painfully breaking though tender newborn gums. Mothers are elated and exhausted during this life changing transition.

    As soon as those choppers make an appearance our morning and evening routine becomes slightly religious. As if the tooth fairy hangs over us chanting “Do Not Let The Sun Go Down On children With Dirty Teeth”!

    And then in a blink those fine little pearls fall out. All That Mother's effort invested into those teeth and they simply fall out. You gush at your child’s excitement and cry that time passed with out your consent!

    And then you take a million pictures of your toothless wonder, grinning her way through life!
