157. First tooth. Weekly Writing Challenge.

First Tooth

Marc is clinging to me, his chubby arms tight around my neck. This is not his usual behavior.  I am worried. I better call Sam.

“Sofie, are you OK?”

“I’m fine. It’s Marc.”

“What’s wrong?” I can hear the anxiety in his voice. I am torn between showing how worried I am and toning it down.

“He is fussy and has been unhappy and crying the whole day,” I answer as calmly as I can. “I don’t know what’s wrong with him.”

“Calm down, don’t worry,” he answers. “Did you take his temperature?”

“No!”

“Do it right now and then call Dr. Thomas. I’m leaving the office in a few minutes and I’ll be home soon.”
