Double Digits!

Parents and teachers are mindful of milestones and transitions that children make, such as losing their first (or their last) baby tooth, first attaining double digits, or the first painful loss (of a beloved pet or person.)  How you acknowledge these milestones and transitions is very important.  If you have personal stories about such momentous occasions, please share some.
