Scratching Your Head

I’m still in disbelief that my baby boy lost his first tooth last night.

How in the heck did this happen?! Wasn’t it just yesterday I watched those teeth grow into their rightful place, dating and jotting down notes in his baby book each time I saw something new?

I can’t even comprehend him growing up. I’d be lying if I didn’t share with you how selfish I wish I could be, keeping him small forever, well maybe not forever, but at least for a little while longer.

Each day he seems to want to do something else without my help. “Don’t worry mom, watch I can do it.”

He’s even old enough to recognize when mommy just really wants to help, not because he needs it, but because I do. “Okay fine mom, you can help.”

Y’all this goes by too fast. And since we can’t stop it or slow it down, my prayer for us is that we never look back thinking we missed a single minute. Everything else can wait. Cherish the moments even the ones we wish would hurry up and go away because before you know it kids are loosing teeth and you’re just left scratching your head.
