In addition to "Operation Lone Ship",
I'm also going to do a "365 project" here on the blog.
I've wanted to do this for a few years,
but never thought I could keep up with it.
I still don't think I can,
but for me 2010 is about breaking new ground
and not being so hard on myself
when things don't happen as I plan.
(because you know they never do!)
So, here's photo number ONE.
True to my life,
it's a day late,
but instead of sighing and saying I will try again next year,
I've decided to jump in and do it anyway.
Today was easy.
Bren lost her first tooth.
That tiny white pearl has been hanging on for two weeks!
She is beyond thrilled about her new smile.
But I, having watched each of those tiny teeth make their debut,
am a little sad that my last baby is crossing yet another
milestone that I will never get to watch again.
There is no back up plan with her.
She's our last hurrah
our cherry on top
and except for milestone days like these,
I'm totally and completely at peace with that.
with that first tooth gripped between her fingers
and her eyes sparkling with excitement,
a teeny, tiny part of me
wishes that I could go back and watch more teeth surface
in the mouth of another rosy cheeked baby.
I know all you moms out there
understand exactly where I'm coming from.
So, it looks like the tooth fairy will visit us tonight!!
