Kindergarten and losing a first tooth — too much for any mother to bare! Silly huh? I didn’t realize how sentimental I would be this last week of toddler-hood! Actually she is not a toddler anymore. My daughter is 5 and growing at a rapid speed that I can’t slow down. Believe me I have tried! When I picked her up at pre-school today she was so proud to show me her loose tooth and all I wanted to do was stop time! How could I be so upset about something that makes her so happy? It wasn’t too long ago that she was spitting bubbles and melting my heart with her smiles.
I was able to savor her innocence for a few extra days. Sienna’s tooth finally came out this past weekend. And it was as dramatic as I thought it would be. Actually it didn’t want to come out. So we helped it a little. The tooth fairy was also very generous with this first tooth. All in all it was a good experience — and despite being so emotional about it, I made it through. Now kindergarten is a different story. We’ll find out more about that tomorrow!
Sienna did meet her teacher today and really liked her!
