There Will Be Blood

Especially when your child decides to get off the couch face first and ends up with a mouthful of table corner. Copious amounts of blood. On you, her, Brother (how the heck did it get on Brother?), the couch.

And, of course it will happen when you're not looking. You wouldn't have been able to stop it anyway. It's just one of those things. But that won't keep you from feeling just a wee bit guilty.

And, man, it will be swollen. Better today, in these pictures. But that nosedive will also rip her frenulum and cut the gum right above her front teeth. The doc will say it appears to have missed the root and that the tooth is most likely not dead. But you'll have to wait and see.

And then you might have to Google How to Photoshop grey teeth.
But you'll really, really, really hope not.

Dada fell flat onto his face on his 1st birthday sending his two front teeth straight through his bottom lip. Teeth survived. Dada fell on a table corner at age 2, again sending his 2 front teeth straight on through (and out) his lower lip. Teeth survived. Maybe some Granny kisses will help. XOXO
