Today, Friday, I got to volunteer in Avery’s class. Little did I know there was a fiesta planned for today. Tomorrow is Mexican Independence Day (along with a few other countries), to celebrate the kids each pressed their own tortillas and made quesadillas. They ate them with chips, salsa, guacamole and beans if they wanted the extras.
While I was there cleaning up, Avery ran up to me panicked holding something very small pinched in fingers. At first I thought it was her earring and I was a little irritated- hoping she hadn’t lost the back of the earring… it wasn’t her earring it was her tooth! Avery lost her other front tooth- I have a toothless kid! I love it!
I am so glad I was there for the fiesta and to be the first one to see Avery’s toothless, panicked smile.
