My tooth fell out and left a space, so big my tongue can touch my face. And every time I smile I show, the place where something used to grow. I miss my tooth as you can guess but now I have to brush one less! I will put my tooth in a pouch, and on the pillow I will sleep. In the morn I will peep and find a small gift for me to keep.
So I have to admit we have had our share of mouth injuries in the past 24 hours. This afternoon while at our fiends the Heugly's, Jackson was bouncing on as pogo stick and slipped, lost his balance and knocked out his 2 top front teeth! Luckily, they were baby teeth that needed to come out but it was still a shock to see the hole in his moth and all the blood ....thanks Liz for giving me some perspective, I freaked out a little. Jackson has a fat lip and got a bloody nose, he must have hit pretty hard. He isn't too happy about the whole thing and afraid that people are going to make fun of him. He has been babying these 2 loose baby teeth for months and I guess it just freaked him out a little to see and feel the gap and the blood, hummmm must run in the family! I tried to explain that everyone losses their baby teeth and that the tooth fairy will come tonight but he didn't want to hear it and sobbed for his "2 teeth he'll never have again". Ahhh to be a mom to 3 young active boys has been quite an adventure the past 2 days. Guess I should prepare for "real" more serious injuries if this is going to be the trend but I wouldn't trade my boys and their "owies" for anything!!
