Yesterday, B got up and said her tooth was really loose. She took a tissue (as I had encouraged her to do with her first tooth) and wiggled and pulled. This time, I encouraged her not to rush it. “You can wiggle it, but don’t pull or twist. It will come out when it’s ready,” I told her, inwardly wincing.
I didn’t think another thing about it.
I went to work, came home, and then played outside with the girls for a few minutes. We came in and decided to have a quick shower before supper. Nonchalantly, B told me, “I lost my tooth at lunch today.”
No phone call to Mommy at work? No waiting with baited breath to show Mommy your new smile?
I was truly surprised how in-stride B took everything.
We went ahead with our supper plans, and then I had an idea. I decided to load the girlies up after supper and take them for ice cream. We’ve never gone somewhere AFTER supper…we’re usually rushing to get ready for bed. The girls were incredulous when I told them the surprise.
As we drove to the ice cream shop, the girls began to ask, “Can I have the cookie thing?” I don’t know that they’ve ever had a sundae there before, which includes a huge dinosaur cookie, but they’ve seen other kids have it. Of course I said yes.

The girls were giggly and cuddly and so sweet. I loved everything about it, including the opportunity to snap some pictures in the late-day sun.
Waiting in line...

I hate I missed the event itself, but we made up for it with the celebration!
