the long awaited tooth

The day has finally come. My little boy is a man. Well in his own eyes he's a man. He finally lost a tooth. I think he was the last one in his class to lose a tooth. And yes that really bummed him out, cuz he mentioned it daily. I love how all the kids are gather around him like he won the lottery.
When Davy heard that Ollie lost a tooth she got a little jealous. So being the competitive gal she is, she pushed out her second tooth in about 2 days. This is actually her tooth. It is bigger then any of Ollie's teeth. I measured.
This was taken Thursday, note the little bud peeking out. All day it was bleeding and she was bummed.
On Friday she was more bummed and there was even more blood. We were trying to get her in to see a dentist to get it pulled. We didn't want her choking on her tooth. But it came out by itself. After toothy came out Davy got this lovely looking growth on her gums, it's called a liver clot. I swear this picture does not do it justice. It was huge and bulged out of her mouth (imagine a small grape). We were going to have to remove this as well, but then the dentist decided we should wait it out. 3 days later and it looks like a raisin. It's so gross. Poor thing.

You want hear something even sadder? Yesterday morning Davy would NOT stop crying. Scott came out of the room and said, "well I know why she's crying." On his finger he had a red ant. It was underneath her neck biting her. It bit her about 10 times. I was so mad!! I killed that ant very slowly. You mess with my family ant, you mess with me. And after I'm done with you I'm gonna find your family too. I 'm gonna step on each and every one of them. You messed with the wrong lady.

Those red biting ants can create problems in kids. My daughter is allergic and when she gets bitten she swells up-if it is a bite in the neck area she needs medical attention cuz her throat closes. Not a fun childhood in South Florida that's fer shure!!

For goodness sake- there is no reason on earth you should have red ants in your house. In some twisted and unhealthy way I feel responsible for this. Shall I send Christian over?

I'm so sorry about the ant bites. :(
That is just not right.


And congrats on the tooth! :)

I cannot believe the size of Davy's tooth!!! It came and went so fast. It must have not been fun for her or you. (But it was nice of Davy to wait till I was out of town to lose it)

OH, I see a lot of ant traps in your future! Poor Davy! Someone with such beautiful eyes should never be so tortured! Hope the tooth fairy remembers your house (she often forgets at ours!)
