'My two front teeth fell out!!'
This came out of my son's mouth, directed at one of his classmates, less than five minutes after we arrived back at school. We've all had two weeks off, and as usual, we've allowed Billy to steer clear of most kids.
So I'm thinking it's going to take a few days before he jumps right back into the world of kids.
But no... he's back among his peers, watching, commenting and spontaneously sharing information about himself. Wow. Wow. Wow.
I wish I'd had the presence of mind to take a photo, because the phrase was accompanied by a very funny lifting up of the upper lip with the fingers to show off the full beauty of his toothlessness. Hang on, that's an appropriate gesture, added to a peer conversation.
WTF? My kid? No...
Every day, along with the constant taps on the shoulder about what's different about my boy, I get a burst of hope. A little puff of air that surrounds the two of us like a bubble.
And bubbles make everyone feel better, right?
