Loose Tooth

So I have noticed over the past few weeks that Julia's bottom teeth have been shifting around and now she has some big spaces.  I asked a friend of mine whose son has just started losing his teeth if this could be a sign and she told me to see if I could see another tooth.  Duh!  I hadn't even done that!!  So, at dinner last night I was telling Scott the story and we looked . . . sure enough she has a permanent tooth through the gums.

So, now she is walking around talking funny because she is pushing on that tooth.  I explained to her that she needed to be careful and just watch for the tooth when eating hard things like apples, etc.  She said, "Like carrots too?"  Then a few minutes later she asked if she needed to be careful while eating pasta.  Guess she didn't really get it.

And since I am on the subject of Julia, she is really excited about reading right now.  She wanted to read a book last night and chose a leveled reader that she is familiar with, which was good since it was a Level 1. She is still only in Pre-K.  We made it through one page and she was ready to move on, but Mommy had to take a break.  I am just glad she is excited about it!

  1. She's at the age for losing teeth. It also means she is growing up, good thing you have younger ones or it might be a little sad. They grow up way too fast. Awesome on the reading.
