This afternoon, Zander was eating his lunch. He bit down and suddenly burst into tears. (Zander is my Drama King. This really isn’t anything out of the ordinary.)
All of a sudden, he starts yelling, “I bit my tooth! I bit my tooth.” I didn’t understand *how* he could bite his tooth, and asked him if he meant he bit his tongue. He said no, and continued to say that he bit his tooth.
I looked in his mouth, and wouldn’t you know it? He’s got his first loose tooth. I’ve never heard anyone calling “biting their tooth,” but with my kids you never know what you’ll hear.
Oh, and now Jace is jealous that Zander has a loose tooth and wants all of HIS teeth to fall out too. (He said so that the tooth fairy will bring him 5 cents so he can get a Batman & Catwoman Barbie set that we saw at Walmart.)
