Why do they have to grow up sooo fast?

This morning Caleb had a dentist appointment, so Brian monitored his brushing. We normally just let the boy brush his teeth alone, but since the dentist would be checking them...we thought we'd help. Well, Brian and Caleb then came and found me to show me what Brian found in Caleb's mouth while brushing his teeth. A permanent tooth...come on...the boy is only 5. This means he's no longer my little baby (well, we knew he wasn't little anyway, but you know what I mean). He's growing up...fast!

Anyway, everything checked out okay at the dentist, and he doesn't have any cavities. But -- since the permanent tooth is growing in BEHIND the baby tooth, the baby tooth isn't loose at all. What does this mean? Well, to Caleb...BAD NEWS! He has to go back to the dentist to get the baby tooth pulled. He doesn't know too much yet because he has a HUGE fear of shots. And -- yep...he'll have to get a shot when they extract the tooth. We will hold off telling him as long as we can. Luckily, we go to a wonderful pediatric dentist, and he will be able to take his favorite movie to watch while having the tooth pulled.

So, there you have it...my firstborn is growing up...too fast if you ask me. I'm sure Micah is right behind too...I can't believe he's 6 months now. Geez....where is the time going?
