a face only a mother could love



i couldn't resist capturing this image of the toothless wonder. it seems like every other day, when we pick him up from camp, he greets us with a tiny pearl clutched in his sweaty little palm. and every morning, he carefully counts up his tooth fairy money and adds it to his stash (he's saving up for the "Kung Fu Panda" game for PS2.)

i think he's got a good racket going on...

ahhh....I LOVE that photo and shall COPY you if G lets go of them in rapid succession like your adorable munchkin has! G has yet to lose her first and she is almost 6. I am looking forward to the snaggle tooth days!

You may have to find out how he is loosing those teeth- ha ha! They look so funny when they start loosing them all, don't they?! If they were teenagers they would be mortified.

Lelly - this brought back memories for me! One summer my Spencer lost 6 teeth! I thought he was trying to scam the tooth fairy! Cute photo of your little! - I love it when they are saving for something special!

Priceless- you are going to be so glad you took this picture!
It's a once in a lifetime shot- hopefully... unless he's a hockey star or something.

My boss calls that 'mixed dentition' look the ugly duckly stage. I really hate it when he says that to the kid's mom during a check up, what if she didn't take it well?

What a awesome picture.

We have to same look going on here. In the last few months between 3 kids we have lost 15 teeth. The tooth fairy is exhausted! and broke!

Holly said...

The Tooth Fairy over in your neck of the woods must be worn out--that's a lot at the same time. Glad he has a plan for all that $$$.

We have a forgetfull tooth fairy here! I'm amazed my kids still believe! Classic picture!

Chris said...

Our tooth fairy is sometimes very busy. I guess I know where she has been as of late. Cute picture, that is a lot of missing teeth.

HI!
I am new to all of this bloggin business, could you fill me in on your SPT - I am using context clues to guess that it is somehow a self portrait, but explain to me how it works.

oh i love the toothy/toothless pics. ellie is smack dab in that phase and has a bit of "nanny mcphee" going on with the one front baby tooth hanging in there...

is jack loving camp?

Alisha said...

A moment in time to be remembered, for sure. I love the toothless pics I have of my kids. (And Jack is a toothless cutie, too!)

What a funny picture. What is the going rate for teeth in your area? The Tooth Fairy at our house had to pay out $2 for a tooth! (I even noticed that the Tooth Fairy added blue glittery fairy dust in the money jar...Dominic did not notice...the Tooth Fairy was a little disappointed...)

Rhonda said...

What a cute smile. Glad he didn't swallow his "prize" as did one of my daughters once. I love this stage in their lives. Ahhh...and then they have BIG teeth that I always have to remind myself... They do "grow into their teeth".

Jill said...

This picture is hilarious! Can you imagine if we lost teeth and looked like this as an adult?? We could never pull it off, it take kid cuteness to sport teeth like these.

To jack I wont to maree you because your so hansune love erin hill.

Amanda :-) said...

Helloo! Erin insisted on typing smthg to Jack as soon as she saw his picture. I only helped her to spelle 'because'! She's VERY impressed that he's into Kung Fu Panda, as she's just discovered it on her cereal box. Hilarious.

It's so exciting when they get their adult teeth, isn't it? It starts to change the whole look of their face!

losing my teeth was so magical to me when i was little. i would always place with my loose tooth all day long, seeing how far i could bend it back, then anxiously wait for my dad to come home at night so he could pull it out. too fun.
