a little mommying rite of passage on the weekend here at the rikrak home.
our little sweetie lost his first tooth. imagine!
on my part: excitement. can't-believed-ness. a little *my baby's not a baby*-ed ness. lots of photo-taking.
on little rikrak's part: elation. pride. joy. lots funfun staring-in-the-mirror-ness. calling everyone in the family-ness. so sweet.
little rikrak suggested a funeral celebration for the tooth.
of course, mr. rikrak & i loved this idea.
we took turns holding the little tooth, wrapped in a felty pouch, sharing words of fond remeberence. perhaps the sweetest part:
little rikrak : " we've been through so many great times together, tooth. hard times: like when you got hit with a baseball. yummy times like eating gelato, whip cream, chocolate. .... thanks." so sincere. so sweet!
needless to say mr. rikrak & i loved it.
so it's a little like a new little mommying era, of sorts.
it's an exciting time.
but i am glad he asked the tooth fairy (in an adorable little note) to keep the tooth.
you *know* how i love collections! i do always love a good souvenir!
any fun tooth fairy/ losing a little tooth memories you'd like to share?
isn't that toothless grin the most adorable little thing?
