i remember this tooth

your first tooth popped out today. you were shrieking with thrill, accomplishment, and amazement for quite some time after you managed to pluck it from your gums. it wasn't an ordinary thing, but at that moment, it was. it was both happy and joy because this, as you say, makes your smile a "big kid smile"! i now sit down in reflection and feel this sense of wow, is life speeding up? i remember how much work it was for her to get that tooth to come in in the first place. =)
