The first day of school came and went. I didn’t shed a tear. I loved the quiet of the house. I relished a nap time that I could do whatever I wanted. I shaved my legs the first day of school without cutting myself for the first time all summer. Then came the dreaded day, the first loose tooth. I cried the first time I played tooth fairy for my dd. Now teeth pulling is gross. The gums make this weird sucking sound that rolls my stomach. I rinsed the teeth in mouth wash and helped my dd put them under her pillows (so I can find them later.) Now my oldest ds has not one but two loose teeth. This tooth fairy is already feeling the sting of tears.
