It’s taken me over a week to sit down and write this post. It’s just too upsetting. And before we go any further, YES I know in the scheme of things, this is NO BIG DEAL! And, as I’m sure each of you and your Momma is going to point out, I’m extra hormonal right now. I know this.  I nearly cried last night cause I wanted a Krispy Kreme donut but there aren’t any around. 🙁

Anyway…my baby Boo is now missing her 4 top front teeth and it kills me!

IMG_9579softcThe dentist diagnosed her with “weak teeth” when she was about one and a half, I think, and we’ve been to the dentist probably at least 2 dozen times since then trying to fix them.

A temporary filling fell out, so Misteris took her to the dentist to have them repair it, but apparently they decided to pull it…AND the one next to it. UGH!!!

booHe brought her home with a little blood still around her mouth, it was awful. Of course I smiled and we talked about how awesome it would be to give TWO teeth to the Tooth Fairy! But, oy, I hate this! I feel like there must have been a million things I did wrong to lead up to that moment.

She asked “what if I lose ALL my teeth and can’t eat?” I assured her that wouldn’t happen, while inwardly thinking…”What if she loses ALL her teeth and can’t eat?!?!?!?!” (What, me, melodramatic? Never!)

Misteris thinks she looks cuter now…I disagree…but then again he’s always been a huge fan of symmetry. Artist thinks she looks kinda like a vampire, and although I’m pretty sure it makes me a horrible Mom, I can’t help but somewhat agree. At least she’s an exceedingly adorable little vampire! 😉

    Have you read Cure Tooth Decay? It has some interesting theories about strengthening weak teeth! The basis premise is that certain fats and fat-soluble vitamins can regrow weak teeth.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

      Thanks for the question, I actually usually spend way longer than I should getting a post out….it helps if it’s something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile before I write it, or if I write late at night when I’m at my most creative (I’m a night owl) and there are no distractions. 🙂

    during lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.

    I seldom leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up here Mom Guilt |
    Running With Spears. And I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few
    of the remarks look like left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything
    new you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your
    shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or
    twitter feed?

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for
    me on Safari. Superb Blog!
