  1. Awww, such a landmark. My son has his first permanent teeth coming in (oddly, behind his baby teeth, because he still has not lost any teeth!) It is a weird feeling, watching your kids grow up. I love how you used space in your poem to heighten the emotions.

  2. I can totally relate to this since my daughter recently lost her two bottom teeth. (One of them was a natal tooth so I was delighted for that one to go!) But it’s a mixed bag of emotions since this means our babies are really starting to grow up once they begin losing their teeth.
