Toothless Grins

Tonight's post is very special because it's been a loooooooooonnnnnnnngg time coming.  In June Tyler (a.k.a. Biscuit) worked to get his two front top teeth out and at that time they were pretty loose.  Well, it took quite a while for the first tooth to come out...actually it was about three weeks ago and it happened when he and Jacob were playing football in a hotel room (during one of our trips to Oklahoma City for the state fair).  Jacob "tackled" Tyler and the tooth popped out!  He was so excited and we hoped that the other one would come out soon after, but it didn't.  A few days ago, I wrote this post and mentioned Tyler's dangling tooth. 

Here's a close-up of the "dangler".  I was afraid he would swallow if it fell out during the night!

Well, yesterday morning during worship, Tyler (apparently) was trying to get the dangling tooth out, and OUT IT CAME!  He was so excited!!  Of course it bled a little bit and luckily I had a few tissues stuffed in my purse.  I think that is the third tooth he's lost during worship.  He does it quietly and without much movement because I've been sitting right next to him each time.

I had been telling Tyler he would be singing "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth"....and sure enough....he will be! And, for that, I'm grateful.  Because he's the youngest of my four children and I'll miss seeing those sweet toothless grins.

What are you grateful for today?  For more Gratituesday, visit Heavenly Homemakers.
