Only When You're a Kid


Happy to Show off that Missing Tooth
 
Two things struck me as funny when I saw these pictures:

  1. Only when you're a kid do you get so excited about missing teeth ;)
  2. Only when you're a kid do you get so excited about getting four quarters (thank you Tooth Fairy).

Little man's now rocking that 'missing front tooth' look, lol, and he looks supercuteadorable to me. :)

Janine Huldie said...

So cute and totally made me smile. and you are right, only when you are a kid would both these things make you happy :)

Masshole Mommy said...

Oh, you're tooth fairy gives quarters, huh? Ours gives them $5 for their first tooth and a $1 bill for each tooth after that.

Paula Miller said...

Ahh!! He IS supercuteadorable :))

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I wish the tooth fairy would come and visit me still whenever I lose a tooth lol

Chatty Crone said...

Only a kid likes snow....

Robin said...

He is supercuteadorable!!!!

Kristi Maloney said...

Oh...he looks so proud! Way to go!! Good observation too, I wouldn't be happy if one of my teeth fell out. lol

Monica said...

What a big milestone! He is absolutely super cute adorable.:) And he is looking like quite the big boy too! Congrats!

Sandee said...

That's because he is adorable. To all of us.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What a cutie!

Joyce Lansky said...

If I lost a tooth, I'd be frantically excited in a bad kind of way. However, I wouldn't mind finding money under my pillow. That would excite me, too. Maybe I'm still a kid . . . even if I'm no longer cute like that one.

He's so cute! Losing teeth is exciting for kids, isn't it? Blake has yet to lose any (probably one of the last in 1st grade). He doesn't even have a loose one yet and he'll be 7 in August. His hygenist says it's a good thing though...protects the adult teeth longer giving the little ones more time to get brushing down :-)

Yeah, "supercuteadorable"! hihi
Good posting.
Wish you a happy evening, rosey, hugs, Wieczora (◔‿◔)| My photoblog

Becka M said...

HAHA you are so right. I think it is because loosing teeth is a sign of growing up and kids are so ready to grow up before they need to.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

My son is just about ready to lose his first tooth. He is super excited about getting a dollar.

Young At Heart Mommy said...

My daughter had her first experience with the tooth fairy last year. She is only five but had an accident by the pool which knocked one of her front teeth out. We made the experience much less traumatic by getting her a tooth fairy pillow and dust!

Lisa Joy Thompson said...

My youngest daughter was missing her 2 front teeth in the fall and it is the most adorable look! My youngest son's front teeth are loose right now and he is eagerly awaiting the day they fall out so he can get a visit from the toothfairy!

Elephant's Child said...

Very, very cute. And now the words of the song my father sung to me 'All I want for Christmas are my two front teeth, my two front teeth...' have become an ear worm.

Jacquelineand.... said...

He is supercalifragilistic cute!

Kecia said...

He is definitely cute with his missing tooth! I cannot wait until we reach this stage with our kiddos.

Julie Maloney said...

HA! So true! My kid made me take pictures of his toothless mouth!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

The first thing I noticed from these photos is his nice shirt and tie! Looking spiffy :)

alissa apel said...

He looks so cute! I love the missing gap. Isaak tried drinking a straw through the gap. I think the next time Isaak looses a tooth I'm going to make a shimmery dollar like Theresa once posted.

Launna said...

Awe... he does look adorable Rosey... what a sweetie... and yes only as a kid would you get excited about losing a tooth :)

~ Noelle said...

I was thinking, that toothless grin is just too cute ;)

Heather @ The Beating Hearth said...

awwww. Losing their teeth changes their look so much. They go from being little to being a real kid! sniff sniff. My baby has lost her first two on the bottom and the top two are loose. I CAN'T TAKE IT!!!

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

He is so cute. My older kids are getting so blase about losing teeth, I look forward to my little guy being excited about it, at least.

BrettBMartin said...

he looks so happy!! we do gold coins from the bank for tooth fairy. they come in rolls of 20 and then I won't run out.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

The tooth fairy does seem to have an age limit

Theresa Mahoney said...

Oh how the roles reverse when you are older. Lose a baby tooth, get some money. Have one pulled when you are older, pay out the rear for it.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Oh, and yes! He is definitely supercuteadorable!

Ai Sakura said...

aww yes he is super adorable!!

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

Colette S said...

He is so cute!
And yes only if you are a kid do you get excited about the lost tooth.

But me, I'm excited for coins because it's just a little more towards groceries :)

Chelsea Olivia said...

Haha I used to LOVE losing teeth so the tooth fairy would come! One shiny dollar for me, thank you!

Mandy Carter said...

I hated losing teeth! The experience to me was not worth the few bucks the tooth fairy left me. Not to mention how my tooth fairy completely dropped the ball and forgot to get my tooth one night and caused me to question her, Santa and Easter bunny! LOL

Binky said...

It's funny how much our perspective changes!

Alesha @ Full Time Mama said...

They are the cutest with missing teeth!! I also love that they think getting coins is the coolest thing... Wish that lasted longer! :)

Stephanie said...

Oh so adorable!

Those are cute pics. Can't wait til my grandkids start losing teeth and I can give them extra tooth fairy $.

Sippy Cup Mom said...

He's so cute! My on just lost his first tooth and is so excited.

Jenni said...

He is very cuteeee! I love the missing front tooth look...he totally rocks it! I always remember being almost just as nervous the night before the Tooth Fairy came to visit as I did Santa Claus.

Lolo @ Crazy About My Baybah said...

To be a kid again! So much fun!

Liz Mays said...

Those are always the cutest teeth to be missing in a little one. He's growing up!

Weekend-Windup said...

You are true. Only kids get excited when their teeth fall down till they grow.

Poke The Rock said...

looks great especially with the sunglasses and the tie :D

Ann Jones said...

My son lost the same tooth two days ago! He has the same type of grin going right now, it's so adorable :) I love your sons outfit and smile, too cute!!

Tiffany Cruz said...

Too cute. My 6-year old just grew in all the teeth she was missing. Now it's time to start working on her back teeth. You're right. Only little children and babies look adorable toothless.

Chrissy Boerman said...

sshhh. dont tell my kids the tooth fairy comes to your house. it doesnt come to our house. but i do agree ony a kid can look cute toothless

Denise Taylor-Dennis said...

My son is only 4 so he hasn't started to loose teeth. It is fun when they do, my daughter always looked forward to the tooth fairy.

Toni Patton said...

So true. My kids always get super excited when they lose a tooth!!

Brian Miller said...

Nexlegacy Performance Institute said...

The Quirky Homemaker said...

He is super-cute with that missing tooth! And you're right. It is the ONLY time you would be happy about a missing tooth. But, gotta say. . . . what's with that HAT?!?!?! Haha. Just kidding. ;)

Aleksandra Nearing said...

Congrats on the missing tooth! Lily's had a loose one for a while, but it is hanging tight. It is funny to see her grown-up teeth coming in!

Debra Rutt said...

Love it! Hey I'd be happy to if I was earning money just for losing my teeth (or hair!)

MrsAshley said...

How adorable!! I love childhood, there's nothing like it!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Rosey . he does look a little angel like that! So pleased the tooth fairy visits .. oh those days of "Only when you're a Kid"!! ..

Cheers Hilary

Teresa Moody said...

Hey, we can still act like it's our childhood,. Just not when we lose teeth. lol How fun for missing a tooth.

Dina said...

What a cutie. I love all the snow you are getting. We have had less than an inch this year and we'd like one good snow. I know you would probably love to get rid of yours huh?

Dina said...

Such a cutie. Love all the snow you got. Missing teeth and getting money is fun for them!

Krystal Butherus said...

Love the Tooth Fairy. =] Mine used to bring me gum. I don't think that was such a good idea!

Brandy said...

Well my seven year old decided that his friends get WAY more than just $1 for teeth so he is going to expecting more and I said well the tooth fairy I know only gave me maybe a quarter up to one dollar when I was a kid and I have a feeling that same tooth fairy I had is the one you will have ;-)

stevebethere said...

Haha! that is so true...cute photos heheh!

Have a toothtastic day ;-)

Ms POSH said...

Those are some really cool looking sunglasses. http://poshonabudget.com/2014/03/ww-busted-squirrel.html

Candy said...

No kidding! I love toothless smiles in kids!! :)

Maddi'sMommy said...

What a generous tooth fairy. :)

TaMara Sloan said...

I love toothless smiles! How precious!

Alissa said...

Congrats on the missing tooth! What a fun first. We just went through that ourselves.

A Mom's Take said...

He looks so cute!! I noticed his missing teeth instantly!

Eliz Frank said...

It's a great photo and I love those blue tinted glasses... What does your handsome son look like now? :-)

Paige Nicole said...

Sometimes I miss the innocence of childhood! He looks super cute in these pics! and so excited!

Felicia Carter said...

Ah, so true! I miss the simplicity of being little sometimes.

Kelly Blackwell @ Heres My Take On It said...

If I looked that cute with a missing tooth, I'd probably be excited too! What a great photo set. I never even thought about the difference between the joy of a missing tooth as a child and as and adult. How perspective changes. :)

Maria said...

hey there! it's been a while since i truly sat down at the computer, and i wanted to come catch up! i loved this post...made me smile. so true! missing teeth look so cute on your son! and yes...four quarters...the joy they can bring a child! i love it!
and i love all that snow in the picture!
xoxox

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

Hahaha! Missing front teeth on adults just doesn't have quite the same effect. Does it? ;)

mail4rosey said...

That's what he looks like now. We took that picture Sunday Morning, just after he lost his tooth. :)

mail4rosey said...

Come and take all the snow you want, Maria. :)

Kenya G. Johnson @ KenyaGJohnson.com said...

The easiest way to guess a child's age is looking at their teeth. Except in my case I knocked them both out at age two. I didn't realize how awful that must have been until I had a child of my own ;-) I posted a #TBT on my FB page (btw are we friend friends?) Anyway, it's my ID card from high school 1988. Somebody commented that I had the same smile. I started to reply, "Yep, all the same teeth."

MikiHope said...

He definitely looks adorable with the missing front teeth! Part of that big smile might have something to do with what the tooth fairy left him!

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

He's gorgeous tooth or not so cute Rosey.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

LOL, that is so funny that he is that excited over a missing tooth. You are so right... only when you are a kid.

Tami said...

Little dude as some serious style! :)

Secondary Roads said...

I'm guessing that Dad bought him that hat!

mail4rosey said...

That IS his dad's hat. ;)

mail4rosey said...

We're FB friends. You've got me curious now. I have to go check.

mail4rosey said...

Crazy males in this house, Michelle. That's all I can attribute it to. ;)

Susan Zutautas said...

I lost a front tooth at Christmas while eating a really hard chicken wing. I must have bit down on it too hard. I'll tell ya I sure wasn't smiling about it. LOL But I did smile when I saw the picture of your son above.
