One in the hand is better than one in the mouth

By Richie Ann Ashcraft

Jonas finally lost his first tooth. It's monumental because he's been waiting and waiting, checking and wiggling, ever since Soren lost his first tooth more than two years ago.

He could not be more proud or excited. The best part? It happened at school which shot him into instant Kindergarten popularity.

By end of school Tuesday, every kid knew that Jonas had lost his tooth, and in knowing, they also learned his name. By Wednesday morning's drop-off, the parents had all heard of the infamous loose tooth as well, and I was met with the lost tooth fame. "So, I heard Jonas lost a tooth AT SCHOOL!"

Sometimes, it's just such a thing that can help shy kids and their sometimes shy parents break the ice. Who would have guessed that this teeny-tiny tooth would lead to new friends.
