Check out Gabriel’s new smile! He lost one of his two front teeth a few months ago, and today the other followed suit! Unfortunately it was helped along by his fall at school (poor guy, got all scraped up). Although, the blow was softened by knowing the tooth fairy was on the way! He even wrote her a note that said “Can you talk? Love, Gabriel”. Awww.
He is really fascinated and asking LOTS of questions about the Tooth Fairy and I have to say it’s starting to weigh on me a little bit! He looks at Jim and me with those big blue eyes and trusts that we will give him the full truth. What is a parent to do?! Believing in such wonderful things is part of the joy of childhood, but I never considered the way I would feel facilitating the “legend”…. I actually have a twinge of guilt! That is all I am going to write for fear he will log on, find my blog, and read this veiled confession for himself! Ha ha.
By the way, check out his haircut too! It’s a bit messy but you get the idea, thankfully no bald spots for my first try! 🙂
