Don’t worry. The title quote is not mine. If I had lost two teeth, my bank account would be hurting more than my mouth.
We walk by sun time, not by the clock, trying to be out at dawn and home before the sun heats up. At this time of year, we often see neighbor Bob driving Logan (6) to the bus stop. We caught up to them as Bob parked at the stop sign. Logan was in the back of the car, and as Bob rolled the window down, the boy’s head went down with it. He was teasing by hiding from us. His great news overcame the teasing mode as he announced, “I lost two teeth!’
“May I take a picture?” I asked.
“No,” replied Logan gently as he ducked his head. His dad told him to pose for me, which he did graciously. With children you often have one shot, and that’s all you’re going to get. Bob and Logan passed on this one, so the photo moment was declared a success.
