Childhood Milestones {The Ordinary Moments}

Last year, say February, Moo declared she had a wobbly tooth, me getting oh so excited and a bit sad that this was actually happening gave her the biggest smile and whispered the tooth fairy will soon visit.

Months passed and the tooth was still intact and nobody actually believed me that Moo had a wobbly tooth, I began to even doubt myself!

Fast forward to December and not only did Moo have one wobbly tooth, she had another 4! Not as wobbly as the first mind. She would sit there and wobble it about with her tongue and even when I went into her school to sit in on an afternoon session, I caught her wobbling it with all her might on the carpet!

Christmas day and it was hanging on by a thread and I was hoping it wasn’t going to fall out, we was certain the tooth fairy may of had too much fairy juice and forget to deliver {plus she was short on coins ;)} Lucikly it didn’t fall out and on boxing day once I had tucked her into bed and left her bedroom we heard screams of “its fallen out, its fallen out” I run into her room and she was furiously looking for it, but it was still attached! With a little help from mummy as it was hanging out of her gum, I had gave it a little tug as I was worried it would fall out in the night, cries of joy and the realisation the tooth fairy was actually going to visit we had a very excited little girl! I on the other hand was so upset.. It took 10 months for this tooth to fall and all the commotion it caused in the last few days hit me, I was a blubbering mess as I cuddled my gorgeous gummy little girl.. Proof that she is getting older..


I have to admit, its the tiniest tooth I have ever seen!

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

    Aww, look how tiny it is! They are very persistent at hanging on, aren’t they? Noah had one that was wobbly for 6 months too! Bless her. Hope the tooth fairy was kind! 🙂 xx

      I was so afraid about loosing it! Its the smallest tooth I have ever seen, even the dentist said how small they were when we went a few months back!

    Oh how sweet – after all that waiting time she must have been just bubbling with excitement – and it is a gorgeous tooth 🙂

      I was so scared of dropping it and never finding it again! She literally cried with joy that it had fallen out!

    Oh this makes me feel a little emotional. I think losing a tooth is such a big sign of growing up, it’s all just going so quickly. I can understand why you blubbed, I definitely will too! x

      Oh I know Katie, I cant belive how quickly time goes, just another sign ahe isnt a baby anymore!

    Aw losing a tooth is such a big milestone, no wonder you were emotional, I know I will be too, it makes me feel emotional just reading this. Time just seems to be going so fast. x

    Awwww! I tried to convince my daughter her first wobbly tooth was going to take a while to fall out and she bit into a strawberry at lunchtime the next day and it fell out! It is such a difficult milestone but the immense excitement of the magical tooth-fairy visit is such a wonderful experience- I hope it went a little way to making it better.

      She was amazed the next morning when the tooth wasnt there and a few coins were! Magical!

    Aww, what a tiny tooth. I’m sure these milestones are a lot harder for us mummies than the kids. Those signs they are getting older are quite hard to take. Lovely post xx

    The thought of the kids losing teeth creeps me out completely. I am hoping we are a few years away from that! I still remember the tooth hanging by the thread stage and running that falling out tooth along my other teeth. Eugh, now looking back it sends shudders through me! Definitely the tiniest tooth in the world that one x
