Oh, the Trauma!

Remember when my sweet, adorable little Emmy chipped her tooth on the kitchen floor a year ago? I was so upset, and wept over that little, chipped tooth.

Just a few days ago, not two minutes after I left Lily, she came running up to me with a bloody mouth. I panicked; I did not keep my cool; and I felt like the worst mother in the world. In those two minutes, she found a metal whistle, put it in her mouth, promptly fell down and sliced her gum above her front teeth wide open. She was hysterical, I was hysterical, and Emmy stood on the sidelines, not knowing what to think!

I called her pediatrician, who said there was nothing to be done. So I coddled Lily, cuddled Lily, and gave her some ice to suck on. She asked, “Will my smile be all right?” She cried a lot; I cried a little, and now, a week later, I can’t even see a scar. It’s amazing how fast kids heal!

  3. I love, love, love the header! The new design is just awesome! I'm glad Lily is OK. Those head or mouth injuries are sooo scary!

  4. Oh, my. The first photo? Yes, I see her tooth is chipped and as a mom I know how that hurt your heart… but OH!! that is a cute picture of an adorable subject!!The second photo… oh, the poor sweetie. Such sad eyes!I chipped my two permanent front teeth on a trapeze bar when I was about 8. My mom cried and cried, I remember… the dentist filed them down mostly straight, and that's the smile I have today.

  5. Poor kid. But it is amazing how resilient they are. My youngest went head first in to the floor today, his forehead had what appeared to be a dent and then a goose-egg. Scared the tar out of me, but fifteen minutes later he was eating breakfast, none the worse for wear. I'm still nauseous just thinking about it! Glad Lily healed up fine.
