Where were you when your son/daughter was losing baby teeth?
Losing baby teeth can be an exciting time for the family as a whole …
it marks a milestone in the child’s life!
It can also be a scary moment for your son or daughter.
… they just might not understand that losing baby teeth is part of growing up.
Yesterday I had a dilemma with my son!
He had already gone through losing a couple of baby teeth …
but he didn’t expect to swallow his tooth after taking a bite into his yummy cinnamon sugar churro.
Losing Baby Teeth won’t Happen Every Time You Eat
He was shocked and freaked out that he had lost his baby tooth while eating one of his favorite deserts …
but I think what really got him was the fact he had swallowed it.
“How was he supposed to eat anything else … if every time he eats he’ll lose and swallow his teeth?”
We were at Disneyland … and after this incident, he didn’t want to eat anything. He was completely freaked out.
Even a giant Ice Cream Sunday didn’t appeal to him!
My Personal “Losing Baby Teeth” Experience
I can relate to my son’s sudden shock.
I lost my baby teeth once eating at the family table when I was a kid.
I don’t remember the exact entree I was eating … but I do remember the blood and the scene I made!
My son took it like a champ! Even though he didn’t eat anything the remainder of the day …
he was ok and we went about our business enjoying the rest of the day 🙂
With that, I hope you and your families create lots of family memories (hope losing baby teeth isn’t one of them, lol)
