“MAMA,” a voice rang out through the house, “COME QUICK!”
 
“What’s
wrong?
 
“Look, I can move my front tooth with my tongue! Do I have some kind odisease?”
Six year old Emily had recently learned the meaning of disease. She learnedabout it when the old tabby got sick. The vet explained the cat had a disease and that iswhat caused it to be sick.
By this time, Emily’s younger 
sister and baby brother came to see what the ruckuswas all about.Anna peeked around
the corner. “Does it hurt?”“Nope.”
Mama smiled.
No,
you don’t have a disease. This is normal. All little children
 your age begin to
lose their teeth.”
 
“All of my teeth!”
Oh, no! Not all at once. God allows them to come out one by one to be replacedwith your permanent teeth.
 
“Permanent teeth?”
 
“Like what Daddy and I have.”
 
“Will my friends laugh at me?”
 
“No, this is a sign you’re growing into a big girl.”
 
“Really?”
 
“Really.”“I want to be a big girl, too.” Anna said.
 Mama patted her
on the head. “You’ll get your chance before long.”
 *********
“Children, Daddy’s home.”
 
“Daddy!” they
said, running to greet him at the door.

“Hello
squirts,
he said, kissing Mama
on the cheek. “What’s
new with youkiddos
today?”
 
“I have a wiggly toot
h,
” Emily said.
 He bent over,
“Let me see your wiggly tooth.”
 She smiled big and wiggled it with her tongue.
“Wow, my little girl is growing up to be a big girl.”
 
“That’s what Mama
said
.”
Ann said,
“I want to be a big girl, too.”
 He smiled.
“You’ll get your chance before long, Princess.”“That’s what Mama told me,”
Anna hung her head.
Daddy rubbed the top of his son’s head. “What about my little buddy, does he stillhave all of his teeth?”
 Joshua took out his pacifier. He gave Daddy a big grin. He showed off all eightof his teeth. The family laughed.
“Dinner’s in 10
-
minutes, kids. Time to wash up.”
 
“Okay,” Emily said, leading the way to the bathroom.
 At the family table, Daddy was saying the grace
. “Thank you for this food, we are
about to receive
. Amen!” He took a deep whiff, “Mmm, the chicken smells good.”
 
Mama smiled. “Emily, be careful to not swallow your wiggly tooth.”“I will
,
she took a small bite.
“Oooh, it hurts.”
Daddy said,
“Trying eating the chicken with your back teeth.”
 She pulled a stripe of chicken off the bone.
“What will happen once my toothcomes out?”
 
“Didn’t Mama tell you?”
 She shook her head no.He leaned forward.
“Actually
,
a pretty neat thing happens.” This got all three of the children’s attention. “
On the very day your tooth comes out, you will place it underyour pillow when you go to bed for the night
.”
 
“Why?”
For the Tooth Fairy. She will come while you are asleep and take your babytooth.

“Why?”
 
So she can leave you some
money in place of your tooth.”
 
“Moneeeey, I get money for my baby tooth?”
Daddy shook his head yes.
“What will the Tooth Fairy do with my tooth?”“It’s told
the Tooth Fairy buries it as a sign the little boy or girl i
s growing up.”
 
“Like a
big girl
?”
 
Yes, like a big girl.
 
Anna said, “I want to be a big girl, too.”
 **********Later that night, the girls were snuggled under their covers. Joshua was curled up
with his favorite blue fleece blanket asleep at the bottom of his sisters’ bed.
Mamafinished
the children’s
bedtime story when Emily asked,
When will my tooth come
out?”
 Mama patted the edge of the bed,
“Let me look 
.
 Emily careful to not wake her little brother got out from underneath the covers tosit beside Mama.
“Open wide, dear,” Gently, she wiggled Emily’s tooth,
 
“Hmmm.”
 
Emily closed her mouth. “Well…when will come out?”
 
“I’m not sure. These things are unpredictable.”
 
“Unpredictable?”
 
“Yes, unpredictable…you know, not knowing for sure. I can tell you this, your 
tooth will get wigglier and wigglier every day until finally it
comes out.”
 
“How will it come out?”
 
It can come out while eating something chewy or you may need help getting it
out.”Anna climbed over Joshua, “How did
your first baby tooth come out, Mama
?”
 
“My grandma…your great
-grandma Joy gently tugged it out with the hem of hera
 pron.”
