Carson discovered his first loose tooth last week. He came into the kitchen that morning and firmly instructed me to pack and apple and a pear in his lunch. He went onto say that all he wanted to eat until his tooth fell out were hard apples. He stuck with this new diet for about 3 days, which isn't bad for a kid who doesn't really like apples or pears, especially whole.
Sadly for him, his tooth is still firmly planted. I'm happy if it takes a little while because once they start losing their teeth it is the beginning of the end. He is anxious to grow up because he talks about it all the time, but I love him at this age and would freeze time if I could. I love listening to him play and watching him discover new things. He is a happy, happy soul! He will be really HAPPY when that tooth falls out, so I'll keep you posted.
