The Fifth and Final Good-bye To Two Front Teeth

My last one lost his last one. It is always a little bittersweet for me when a child loses his/her top front teeth. In no time at all the new permanent teeth grow in and then they no longer look like a little one but instead a big kid with big teeth ready to go on to bigger and better things.

Matthew lost his second top front tooth this week. Of course he beams happily and I am happy for him too. Just a little. He has been a "big kid" at heart since about 8-9 months old!

Being the youngest of five he has watched his big brothers and sisters and takes on every challenge head on. This tooth has been loose for awhile now and being a Sloan kid, the baby teeth seem to hang around a lot longer than their classmates and that has been a little frustrating for them. Frustrating for them maybe, but it makes me smile.
