Ok, so I took my little man, Nathan, to the dentist the other day. Nathan kept saying he lost a tooth and has a hole. Ok, now I know I woulda known if he really did lose a tooth, but I played along to get him to want to go to the dentist.
So, we get there and he is gung-ho about it all. He's so excited to tell the dentist he lost his first tooth. The hygenist takes a look and cleans and all that wonderful stuff and she says his 6 year molar is breaking through. At first, I thought, "Oh, ok. Cool." Then I asked, "Wait, is that a permanent tooth?" YUP! It sure is!
His very first big boy tooth is coming in!
And, it's a molar nontheless!
I always thought your front teeth came in first, but I guess not always!
He is totally excited now!!! He even told his classmates and showed them his "Big Boy Tooth."
