I was surprised at how much the loss of one tooth pulled at my heartstrings. The loss of her first baby tooth felt much the same as the arrival of that tooth. When it first pushed out five years ago, her sweet, gummy smile changed from marking her as a tiny baby to a growing infant. When that same tooth popped all the way out it kind of feels like the little kid is changing to the big. Or at least means we're nearly in middle-childhood already.
