My daughter lost her first teeth!

So its been a while.
Today my daughter lost her lower bottom two teeth! I was so shocked even though I knew it was going to happen.
Let me start from the beginning.
A few months I realized that my daughter had two loose teeth. The teeth were her two front lower teeth. I immediately jumped on google and googled the average age that children begin to loose their teeth and saw that my daughter was early! Then I had to think back my daughter started teething at two months of age! So her loosing her teeth at an earlier age was actually expected and normal. Today while we were making home made ice cream, which you can read about in my other blog: myfirstyearnyc.blogspot.com, I noticed that her teeth were laying on her bottom lip and holding on by a vein. I asked her if she was ready to have me pull them out and she agreed. I began to try pull them out and was nervous! I had never pulled out anybodies teeth out not even my own! My sisters were nice enough to knock out all my teeth while I was growing up. My daughter began to cry perhaps sensing my nervousness and having her own, this was also the first time she had ever had someone pulling on her teeth. She began to cry and I tried to ease her worries by talking to her. I pulled out the first one and she didn't even feel it, I showed her her tooth and she wanted to look in the mirror I told her that she was bleeding and not to be alarmed. When she did look in the mirror she began to cry at the sight of her missing tooth and the blood. The second one was actually harder to get out and I actually felt the vein break! It was intense! She began to cry and I wanted to cry to. I believe that she was crying out of confusion, she didn't understand how she was bleeding and wasn't hurt.
I was emotional at the fact that my little girl is now a half a decade old and has lost two teeth! I know it sounds petty but I'm also the same girl that refused to buy her growing daughter size 4T clothing because after 4T there would be no more "T" just 5 which meant my daughter was growing! I know I know I sound crazy but its the truth and yes sadly enough my daughter wore clothing that was a bit too small for about three months until I woke up from my ridiculousness.
So now here I am a mom searching for my daughters first Kindergarten school ever and  in NYC! All the while finding sample questions to study for my placement test for Baruch, applyign to scholarships and falling in love with life more and more everyday and strangely enough looking foward to the challenges! :)
Thank you so much for reading!

Have a great day !!:)
