So the little one is cutting her first tooth – and I sent an e-mail to the fam to tell them all about it. I was a bit soppy about it all, really. My MIL wrote back:
YEAH, for V!! And praise for her parents who embrace all these signs of growing up, even with a tinge of sadness for soon she’ll be out of the nest and off on her own!! If you think you’ll miss this one, you may decide you shouldn’t wait too long to start on the next one. That way you won’t have to learn everything all over again! But wait long enough so that you can enjoy some of these ooohing and ahhhh stages just for V!
Take care. More will soon arrive (teeth, that is).
Would you? Come out of the IF closet, that is? Or would you just ignore the e-mail and it’s subtle-as-skywriting subtext?
