one happy seven year old

The day is finally here! We have been waiting and waiting for two years now. Drake has gotten more and more impatient with each person who has lost one. But yesterday, in a burst of excitement, he barrelled in the house to show me. Yes, Drake finally has a loose tooth. I, as well as his dentist, were becoming a little concerned at the fact that Drake was not loosing any teeth. He did have two teeth pulled back in April because his adult teeth grew in behind his baby teeth making him look like a shark. This did not cut it in Drake's mind though as loosing a tooth. He wanted a wiggley tooth just like ALL the other kids in his class. I thought he would be one to loose his teeth early since he started sprouting teeth at four months of age and had all his teeth by the time he was one (yes, nursing was lovely during that time!!) But weeks and weeks and then months and months and now years have rolled by without even the slightest of wiggles.... until yesterday. Needless to say it is now his obsession. His hands were in his mouth all night long, a great thing since he is a boy and his hands are nasty and it is cold season!! But I have to cut him some slack since he was beside himself with joy when he got off the bus. I will keep you apprised of the situation and I am sure I will post some pics when the "official" day finally arrives. Keep your fingers crossed that it happens soon!!

I am so happy. We too are in this horrible time of "not fair". Bridget can't wait till her first tooth falls out either. i think it is more for the money however, not the tooth.
