Pearly Whites… Minus Two

Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond.
~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605

He went to school this morning looking like this.


The Tooth Fairy? Well, she had to ask Asher what the going rate for teeth is in our house, because as he put it, “Mom, you get chemo brain a lot, don’t you?” Then the Tooth Fairy had to raid Bella’s piggy bank for 2 bucks because all she had was a ten. (Is there any magic left in this house?!)

Yep, two teeth in one day. His first ones.

Now he talks with a lisp and smiles hugely so we can all see.

And my heart smiles hugely and catches just a bit at another milestone.

Stop growing up, son! Just stop it!

    This story is something for Reader’s Digest. Audrey is always on top of everything. Give her my love and my little boys, too.

    Have a blessed day and let your passion for Him fill your house.

    Love and blessings,


  7. I bet we could write a book on tooth-fairy stories and all that parents go through….ah that would be a good book to read!
