30 Days of Thankful--Day 14
I am thankful for toothless smiles. Nathan lost his first tooth today. I shed some tears through the big smile on my face and gazed at the HUGE grin on his face. It was with such mixed emotions that I faced this day. I love seeing the toothless grins on my kids' faces. But the losing of teeth is a clear identifier that my kids are growing up before my eyes. Joe often says "We are raising adults, not kids." And I agree with that. We want them to grow up and become might servants of our Father. But as their mommy I can't help but mourn a little bit of their childhood disappearing. Today my baby grew up a little right before me.
