Baby Teeth

Feb. 23, 2012 4 Comments Posted under: Anonyvox Junior

Junior Vox just discovered that she simultaneously has both her first and second loose teeth. Her two bottom front teeth are wiggly, and I cannot tell you how excited she is about it. She’s talking about how she’s the first kindergartener with loose teeth, and the tooth fairy is going to visit, and she’s a big girl now, and all I can think about is…

I remember how tough it was when those little toofers first came in! And now she’s going to go and lose them?!

I guess this is why the tooth fairy myth sprang up. (Sprang isn’t a word, is it? It should be.) I feel like I should save them and string them on a necklace or something. Not that I’m the first to think of that…

She’s growing up so fast. When you’re pregnant or a new mother, you have five million people tell you, “Remember this time–it goes so fast!” and you think, “Yeah, yeah, if only pregnancy went so fast,” or “Do you have any idea how little sleep I’m getting, and you’re telling me it’s going by quickly?!” And still, you know what they mean, and it is true. Sigh…

So here’s what I want to know, and what JV really, really wants to know: how long does it take between noticing a tooth is loose and actually losing it?

    Seems like it takes forever, like a month! But I guess the more you mess with it the faster it will fall.

    It took Sydney about 2 weeks for each tooth.
    They really do grow up fast. I am getting very nostalgic about it lately.

    Quinn has been telling me that her teeth are loose for about 3 months now… They seem pretty stuck in there to me. I should ask her if she knows what “loose” means.

    It takes what seems like forever. But then A just lost his first teeth in January and he already had the other teeth halfway grown in behind before the baby teeth came out–I called him a shark for a while there.

    And the time does go by fast. N is 10 today, if you can believe that. 10! It seems like it was just yesterday that he was born and now he’s 10. I am seriously freaking out about that.
