Sam is almost 7 now, so we’ve been bracing ourselves for his first tooth coming out for a while. A couple of weeks back, I noticed one of his grown up teeth was starting to cut through behind his lower front milk teeth. So we were well and truly on standby for the inevitable “Goodbye Baby Tooth”. If you read my blog regularly, you’ll already know Sam has Autism, is non verbal and he attends a Special Needs School. I made sure they knew the tooth was loose, so they could keep an eye out for it falling out…

So there we have it – another milestone reached. Sam’s baby teeth are starting to fall out. He’s got another 2 wobbly ones already now. It’s going to be an expensive few years, isn’t it!
