Seriously? Did my 4-year old Baby Boy just lose his first tooth? Are such things possible? He is only 4. I am not ready for this yet. He is my baby. He is not supposed to be growing “Adult” teeth yet!

Yes, I cried. Like a total freaky Mom. As though he were headed to college or something. And then my husband said … “Wow, pretty soon he’ll be asking to borrow the truck.” Gee, thanks honey.

How is it that I can be a stay-at-home, unschooling Mommy … who is around to witness his every move … and yet, I still feel as though he is growing so fast, and that I am missing it all?
