Today was a fun day when I was reminded of the innocent and delightful perspective of children. At breakfast Peter, Isaiah and I were talking about the phenomena (isn’t that a peculiar word) that at a certain age people stop getting bigger but still get older. We discussed at what age this might be…
I made the observation that in my situation, my desire is to get older and smaller. Isaiah, who is 4 3/4 looked puzzled for a minute and then said, “Aunt Trish, I know you want to be skinny like my Mom and I know one thing for sure, your teeth sure are looking smaller these days!”
I can’t help but smile and wonder what brought that observation to his mind. I know it was sincere and meant as a kind affirmation. I will continue to smile big and show off my shrinking teeth. I can’t help but think with a smaller neck, perhaps my teeth do appear different!
One thought on “My teeth are shrinking…”
