Maggie Wilson's son Connor recently lost his first baby tooth.
This got Maggie feeling sentimental.
"I woke up and he was like, 'Mommy, one of my teeth is wobbly.'
"I'm like, 'Huh? What?' And he's like, 'Yeah, I think it's gonna come out.'
"And I'm like, 'Oh my god, I just like—I feel like I just blinked, you know? You were a baby and now, you’re losing a baby tooth and a permanent one is coming out.'"
Maggie and her husband, business tycoon Victor Consunji, took Connor's baby tooth the old-fashioned way: yanking it out with a string.
"We had three attempts. We got it on our third try, and on the third try, Vic just sort of—because Connor, he was very worried on whether it was gonna hurt or not.
"So, the first two times, we used the door, but the string slipped.
"On the third attempt, when he least expected it, Vic just yanked it, and it came out, and he didn’t feel any pain! I have video of it, it was so funny.
"He was like, 'What?'
"I'm like, 'It came out!'
"He goes, 'It did?'
"I was like, 'Yeah! Did it hurt?'
"He said, 'No.'
"I was like, 'See? I told you it didn’t hurt!'"

Connor came to visit me at work this weekend and we did a beach cleanup at @hamilocoastph with @wwfphilippines this morning. We collected a whole bunch of plastic in different forms. From old slippers to ropes, old finishing lines, bottle caps, shampoo bottles, tons of candy wrappers, diapers, styrofoam and loads of micro plastic too! We can not stress enough to please stop using single use plastic and to please dispose of your trash correctly! Help up us create a better environment and to give Connor’s generation and the next a cleaner future! #ayokongplastik
Add to this milestone, Maggie has also been enjoying Connor's knack for saying the "darnest things."
She said, "He just blurts whatever he wants to say. You're at this stage where he'll say something in front of somebody and you're like, 'Oh my god, I can’t believe you said that!'"
But the seven-year-old boy knows not to curse or swear.
"Oh no, he's not the type! He knows. He knows he's not supposed to."
