It was pretty frightening for a girl with such a splendid imagination, but with a little encouragement from her siblings (and a LOT of wiggling from me) she was victorious! And I am totally stunned at how much bigger she seems, all of a sudden. I miss her perfect row of tiny girl teeth. I'm not thinking I like this giant leap forward very much at all -
- but then she prays at bedtime that next time she has a loose tooth, she can "be brave and trust my mom", and then I know the whole growing-up thing is going to work out just fine.
