Proud gap-toothed girlie!

Right in the middle of dinner, Juli lost her first baby-tooth. She’d been worrying and agonizing over it for days. I half-expected she would fly into a panic when it happened. Instead, she lit up like a firefly with the biggest, happiest, proudest smile I’ve seen on her since Christmas. She was so excited, she ran around the table showing off not only her newly expelled tooth, but also her new grin.

Grandma, meanwhile, tried to avert her eyes. Blood at the dinner table, it seems, belongs mainly on grandpa’s steaks.
