Wobbly teeth

Our youngest daughter, Ella, got her first wobbly tooth a short while ago and she was really pleased about it! She’d seen both Aiden and Kaycee deal with losing their baby teeth then getting money from the tooth fairy and she used to get upset that her teeth weren’t wobbly!

When her first tooth came out at the weekend she phoned me (she was at Aiden’s dad’s in Derbyshire, I was home in Lincoln) to tell me the news and I could hear the excitement bubbling through her!
I was pleased and excited for her but that didn’t last long.
When I went to pick her up on Sunday to take her to my Nan-Nan’s 80th birthday party, she looked up, smiled and showed me the gap in her teeth.
Instead of feeling happy and excited, like I was with Aiden and Kaycee, I felt really sad. I can only put this down to Ella being the youngest and this being the last set of teeth for the tooth fairy ๐Ÿ™
I love baby teeth, so tiny and perfectly straight!

It brought it home to me that they’re growing up so fast; Ella’s 6 in August and will be in year 2 in September. Next year she’ll leave her infants school and go to junior school.
I’ll be really sad when she leaves her infants school; we’ve had children at that school since 2005 and it’ll be very weird not going there anymore!

I’ve been fine with Aiden going to junior school then a bit wobbly when he went to secondary school and I was ok with Kaycee moving on up to juniors but it makes me sad when it’s Ella because she’s the baby and there will definitely not be any more babies for us so each time she passes a milestone, it’ll be the last time and it makes me sad.

I know they have to grow up but do they have to do it so darn fast?!

    I feel your pain. My eldest son lost his 4th tooth this weekend (the 2nd in last week). He's now sporting a a huge gap on the top row and talking with a bit of a lisp. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I secretly cry everytime he looses one. They grow up in the blink of an eye dont they :") *sniff

    Ah bless, I can imagine it is a bit strange. I get mixed feelings with our boy. Every day is a new word, but it just reminds me that he is growing up. I want to press the pause button on him sometimes!
