First Tooth

Maddox naturally lost his first tooth last week.  Sunday, 1/15/17, Maddox lost his first tooth the old fashioned way.  He had a tooth extracted from the dentist a couple of years ago after falling at the playground at preschool and hitting that tooth but this was the first time he lost a tooth the "normal" way.  He was very excited AND you could tell he felt so proud, so big and grown : )

MLK according to Maddox

My cute little kindergartner came home from school on Tuesday, 1/17/17 (they were off on 1/16/17 for MLK Day) and told me about what he learned at school:

"Mommy, today we learned about Mawthen Luthen King at school.  He changed laws mom.  Did you know that black people used to have to use a different water fountain than white people?  If black people sat at the front of the bus, they got arrested.  Mommy that is tewible (terrible).  Why would people be so mean like that? Mawthen Luthen King changed all that, Mommy." 

It was so touching to hear him talk about learning about MLK and feeling so much compassion for the people of that time period. 

I am so glad he learned about that at school and so glad it left an impression on him.
