On 5.1.16 after church, we went to Party City to get balloons for Beckham’s birthday party. Nick was the only one that went into the store while the rest of us stayed in the car. All of a sudden, Johannah comes up to the front of the car, and says “Mommy, we have a problem.” I looked at her, and she had that scared look in her face, so I asked what was wrong. She showed me her wristband that she had on (at our church they get wristbands to make sure the kids go to the right parents). I didn’t see anything wrong with the wristband, but I thought maybe it was too tight and that’s why she was freaking out. Then she started crying, and I asked her again what was wrong. Eventually, she showed me her teeth….and there it was folks! She lost a tooth! Her first tooth! I was SOOO excited!…kind of like that feeling when your kid rides their bike without training wheels for the first time 😉
I guess she was trying to get her wristband off using her mouth and that’s when her tooth fell out. I asked her why she was crying, and she thought she was going to get in trouble (hmmm…okay?). When Nick got in the car, Johannah told him the news, and he had the same reaction as me 😉 What a milestone!
Yes, I was that mom that told her not to look under the pillow until I was there with my camera! Even Iron Man was there to witness how much the tooth fairy left for Johannah!
