Tornados DO grow up

How sad......I am one of those moms that wants to enjoy their child for as long as possible and don't want them to grow up.....but, it seems Tornadoes do grow up :-( How do I know this? This week, I was called into the bathroom by a very frightened, very concerned yell from Tornado Boy. I went into the bathroom and found my little guy completely upset with this look of fear and awe on his face. Daddy was in there with him and he asked me to "check it out" because he wasn't entirely sure. I was very confused at first until Tornado boy opened up his mouth and pointed to his bottom tooth. He looked up at me with this face of confusion and said, "I think its wiggling". We have read stories in the past about the Tooth Fairy visit and had explained the whole process of his baby and adult teeth so it wouldn't be a total shock when the time finally came.

Well....looks like the time has tornado is growing up and I can't stop time like I had SO hoped for.

So, he is no longer totally wigged out - according to him he is 50% scared and 50% excited and every day now, he has a system....he calls it his wiggle time - where he takes his finger and wiggles his loose tooth....a wiggle in the morning, a wiggle after lunch and a wiggle before bed. Anyone have a secret on how to stop little boys from growing up? The tooth fairy will be visiting our house soon unless there are any secret methods anyone wants to pass on :-)


  1. No, no secrets here. Just be ready when that sucker does come out. A was fine last year, but freaked a bit this year. And, learn from me my friend, have the Tooth Fairy stuff ready to go and write yourself a note on your toothbrush. LOL

  2. I have been a little concerned with his SPD on how he was going to handle the whole situation....we have already ordered a special coin that he really wanted for his coin collection (that the tooth fairy will leave for him) and the note on the toothbrush is a GREAT idea!!

  3. Sorry, no way to keep them little! And I have to admit that after 2 boys and multiple little teeth falling out, I have forgotten to put a little something under the pillow! I now keep a roll of gold sachahawea dollar coins in the cupboard for unexpected events.

  4. Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I posted a response, and feel free to email me for tips on gifted kindergarteners! He looks like he makes every day a great adventure!
