Her dad and I were talking on the couch when she joined us for some really deep conversation. This girl continues to amaze me with her maturity and observations.
Candid questions. Genuine, age-appropriate answers. Humor is helping.
She told us of how she got nailed in the face during her soccer game today, and it knocked out a tooth that was just beginning to wiggle and detach. She pointed out that once the initial hurt and stinging faded, she realized the tooth was gone, her new one can grow, and the Tooth Fairy will bring her some cash.
All good things. A positive from a negative, if you think about it.
