MAYDAY, MAYDAY WE'VE LOST A TOOTH!
O.k. have you ever pondered what would happen when your child lost their 1st tooth? I mean for us parents with these special kidos... Did you ever have worries about not knowing when? Abby can't communicate, I don't know if a tooth is loose... she has been drooling excessively and crying a lot, but I looked and saw that a molar was coming in so figured it was that. I never in a million years figured it was a loose tooth... how would I know to check?
This morning the nurse and I were looking at her thumb which is pruned white with a few spots that show excessive rubbing from other teeth, ouch.... and then to my surprise I saw a black spot, took a double look and there was NO tooth!
Oh I panicked, where was it? Is she grumpy because she swallowed it? Was it in her bed, oh we have to find it I don't want her to roll over and it end up in her mouth somehow! Is it in her stroller... where is this missing tooth? I had to find it!!!! There was no blood we had no idea!
THERE IT IS..... this tiny perfect little white pearl on the seat of her stroller! PHEW..... Oh what a relief!
Because of her cleft repair, her teeth are not perfectly spaced apart.. I love my little piranha's mouth! They make her her, and are a huge part of her character that I just LOVE! But, because they are so squished together its hard to tell if one is loose!
Anyhoo... this was better than any caffeine jolt I've ever had!
