Near tears, my 6-year-old son was telling me while finishing his breakfast today that his wiggly front tooth was dislodged. I found the tooth inside his mouth mixed in the food he’s chewing, and I asked him to gargle in the bathroom sink. After gargling, he looked at himself in the mirror and asked me this mind-boggling question: “Mommy, am I not handsome anymore?” I silently let out a laugh upon hearing my little boy’s dilemma. He was actually more concerned about his looks than the pain he was feeling or the blood he was seeing.

  1. I think I had to same concern when I lost my front tooth when I was seven, and I was called vampire by my cousins for some time. Ugh! Justin is so cute with or without the front tooth 🙂

  2. Loosing tooth at that age is not really painful. But I guess with the current trend now, young kids gets conscious with their looks. Does he know about the tooth fairy?

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
