Aaron's Looses His First Tooth - September 23rd, 2012
Aaron officially lost his first tooth this past weekend. Whew! This is an accomplishment he has been waiting for! It seems like many of his friends lost their first teeth in Kindergarten or over the summer, so he was super excited when he discovered his loose tooth earlier in the week (thanks to a caramel apple from Caleb). Since the big discovery Aaron has been working that tooth – hands and fingers CONSTANTLY in his mouth. The whole thing really grossed me out – thinking about if it would come out when he was eating or worse, sleeping. And turns out it WAS while he was sleeping. He woke up Scott bright & early at 6:15am on Sunday morning with the news! He was excited for the tooth fairy to come visit (a guise he never did believe in – once Santa fell back in kindergarten all other characters went down like dominoes…). He told me this morning that he was “glad the tooth fairy left him a dollar bill and NOT coins.” Why? “Well, you see, MUCH more comfortable to sleep on that THAN COINS!” That kid.
In fact, he has had a laughing with several things he has said lately, just true Aaron things. When most kids see roadkill I imagine they say things like “Roadkill!!! Dead Deer! Gross!, etc.” Aaron just calmly identifies the victim by saying, “Carcass.” Another one was with his Captain Crunch Berries cereal – he got the end of the bag and there were no berries in his bowl. “Hey, where’s my spheres?!?” He is a great kid and growing up way too fast. Lucky for us, he currently plans to attend the local university when he grows up so maybe he won’t be breaking this momma’s heart too soon!
