Over the weekend we had a major event at our house.
After forty-five minutes of struggling, encouraging, and finally mommy reaching inside and giving a soft tug, my daughter lost her first tooth.
Her twin brother was by her side the entire time, giving encouragement as only a brother can…singing silly songs, dancing around, and bringing her mountains of stuffed animals to make her feel better. Both of my parents were on the phone during the process, going from talking to her and offering suggestions to at the end simply listening. After it was out, over a bowl of ice-cream, we retold the entire event to my husband’s parents.
This got me to thinking about how a strong support system can make an insurmountable task just a little bit easier.
