Front Teeth and Growing Up: It’s Complicated.

Good morning,

I’m so excited to be published on Mamalode today with a new essay called “The Space That Holds My Heart” about my baby boy’s front teeth. Suffice it to say, it’s complicated. Mamalode’s theme this month is Growing Up, and nothing represents growing up more than a kid’s front teeth (or lack thereof).

“I endured by convincing myself that as long as he had that gaping space in his mouth and the sweet lisp that accompanied it, he would stay my second, last, and squishy baby boy forever.”

You can read the full essay HERE.

As always, thanks for your support!
