A tooth! A tooth!

I remember the first time I realized Jon Kent had his first tooth. I was riding in the car with my daddy and we were heading home. I don't recall where we were coming from though. Anyway, I was beyond excited. My first baby had his first tooth! And 5ish years later.. he lost his first tooth.

We were at Kent's grandmother's house getting the kids ready to go back to my daddy's house for some play time (2/27/10). I looked down at Jon Kent while he was jabbering about something and said, "Where is your tooth? It's gone!" He looked at me like I was stupid and said, "Huh?" I said, "Your tooth is gone! Where did it go? Did you swallow it?" He said, "Oh.. that. Well, I was eating strawberries and felt something moving around in my mouth so I took it out and put it in the bowl." That bowl was emptied of it's strawberries and was sitting in the sink that was full of soap and water. So Kent's grandmother goes looking through the trash and I thought that maybe it was still in the bowl in the water. And sure enough it was. I was so thankful to have found it! We wrapped it up and he put it under his pillow that night. The next morning the tooth fairy left him $2.

I can't believe he has already lost his first tooth!

Too cute! My nephew who is also five just lost his first tooth too! Justin was horrified to see his missing tooth. LOL, I haven't had the "Your teeth will fall out" talk with him yet!

What a milestone! They grow up far too fast. He looks cute with his little gap!

How cute that he made no big deal of it, kind of like oh, it's just a tooth. I have plenty more!! I'm sure he was happy to get his $2 dollars though.

At least he didn't swallow it like Parker has swallowed EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of his. LOL
