Our busy lunch...




In the middle of eating her lunch {grilled ham and cheese sandwich, chips and a rootbeer float}, Isabella announced "my tooth just came out"! She was so excited. Not too long ago she lost her first tooth and it took several minutes of reassuring her to get her calmed down. So we were all celebrating her second lost tooth when I noticed Wyndham had left the table. My kids are always leaving the table before it's time to be done, and so I called her back to finish her lunch.
As she came into the dining room, Bella held up her tooth and told her, "Wyndham, I lost another tooth...see?!" Wyndham looked over at Bella and as she did, I noticed that it looked like her {Wyndham's} top tooth was missing. It's been ready to just about come out for almost a week now, it seems. I asked her to smile for me and she wouldn't, so I went over to her for a closer look. Sure enough...her tooth was gone too!
I let her know I was excited and happy for her and told the other kids that Wyndham had lost a tooth too. Bella thought it was so funny that they would both lose a tooth at the exact same time. After helping Wyndham understand that it was a good thing that her tooth had come out, she started to come around and get excited as well. We looked everywhere for her tooth, thinking she either swallowed it during one of her bites of sandwich, or else it came out in her room while she looked at herself in front of the mirror- which is why she had left the table. No luck with finding the tooth, but we did tape a note to her door for the tooth fairy tonight to read when she stops by tonight. Fairies have a way of just picking up on these things and making the moment special- tooth or not.
I, of course, had to take some pictures of the girls celebrating their moment together and showing off their new grins. I wanted their grandparents especially, to see how happy they were and just how amazing it is that Wyndham continues to achieve milestones right alongside the rest of her siblings.
I love that I was home for this moment and it's just one more tangible way for me to 'see' my kids growing up. A busy lunch indeed.

So special! I especially love the second picture. Their new "windows" look great. I found the new holes helpful when having a sucker in my mouth. I could close my teeth and smile. One of my best kid tricks.

Oh, this is so special! How neat that it happened to two of your girls at the same moment...not even just the same day but within a few minutes. Cool indeed!
