B’s first grade teacher is notoriously less than thrilled about wobbly teeth. Even less so when they actually fall out. (An unfortunate issue for a first grade teacher to have!) But, I imagine, that regardless of how much she doesn’t like it, it’s something she probably has to deal with fairly frequently. We added to the problem when one of B’s front teeth fell out at school one day in February. It was a surprise to pick up my little guy from school to find him looking significantly different than he had when I dropped him off!
B had already lost his two bottom front teeth last year, and it was vaguely traumatizing for both of us (for him because anytime part of you disconnects from your body, it’s a little weird; for me because how is it really possible that he’s big enough for that already?!?). But him losing his top front tooth (followed very shortly afterwards by him losing the other one, creating a perfect storm of little boy cuteness which lasted most of the summer) made me again all too aware of how quickly time is rushing past.
And then, there’s the fact that now, just a few short months later, he has two big, grown-up front teeth, and it’s stopped being strange to me that he does.
I love that B is growing up. I am so happy that he is strong and healthy and getting bigger every day, just as he should. But it’s all just happening SO FAST. I can’t believe how quickly my little guy is turning into a big guy.
