lost tooth

At 6 years, 8 months old Tucker lost his first tooth. This is a small right of passage, still it is a moment he will keep as a childhood memory. He slept peacefully. I however, became trapped in memories. I studied the now useless tooth and all at once realized that it was the same tooth, the first tooth that Tucker ever had. At four months old it seemed so strange emerging into his sweet, tiny mouth. And now it's time was up. Others have told me to cherish every moment with my children, but even when I strive for that with every part of me I still sense that this amazing and trying time will be over too soon and that I will have regrets.
