Remembering "The Incident"

It's been exactly one year since "the incident" that caused Chloe to lose her front tooth.

She became my little Halloween Jack-O-Lantern....

I was in true mourning for a couple of weeks because of this. I missed her smile. I felt SO GUILTY.

But now, Chloe's smile is PERFECT. Her smile makes ME smile (insert song that is playing on my playlist right now - LOVE IT!!!).

Sometimes it's hard because I frequently have to explain how she lost it. It usually goes something like this: "I'm a bad mom and she fell." Sad, but true.

Now her smile is just a part of who she is. Her smile and I have a lot in common.... we're imperfect, but that's okay! ;)

I think she's adorable, and I didn't know this story. I just love her smile. Gaps are part of childhood ... and since kids lose teeth at all different ages, I imagine no one even knew something had happened. :)
