Milestone: Goodbye, Tooth

When I became a mother nearly six years ago, my mother shared a bit of wisdom with me. She said, "Having a baby is the beginning of a long series of goodbyes."

Huh, you might say? Well, you say goodbye to the vibrating bouncy seat (I loved that thing). Then, the pacifier. Then, the exersaucer (loved that, too). Then, the bottle.....the high chair.....the crib.....diapers (bingo!!!).....tricycle. You see what I mean? (well, maybe not all of that in that order)

Well, this week, we said goodbye again....

I apologize for the blurry pic....we were busy prepping for the Tooth Fairy

Yup, that's right, my baby lost his first loose tooth.

And not only did we say goodbye to that, he's going to kindergarten on of the biggest goodbyes.

A long series of goodbyes, it is.

I have to stop typing now.

We've figured out how to send a man to the moon, but we can't make time stop. Clearly, we don't have our priorities set.
