Stop The Presses!

Noah has his first loose tooth.......and he's scared of it?!!? Is this common or is my child wierd?? When Drew was first losing teeth, Noah commented on how he never wanted to lose his and he was scared it would hurt but that was a couple of years ago. I guess that fear hasn't left him. He went to take a bite of his pizza last night and said it hurt his tooth. Todd felt around and sure enough, one of the top front teeth was loose. We were all excited for him but he just sat there deep in thought. He kind of whimpered and said that he didn't want a loose tooth. He was afraid he might swallow it, or that it might hurt. Even having Drew tell him that the Tooth Fairy leaves money for lost teeth didn't seem to brighten him up. Hmmm, this journey could be interesting.
***************Other non-related stories.................
During dinner last night Aiden says "Oh, dammit" Todd and I kind of look at each other and shrug. He's 2 and sometimes hard to understand. Surely it wasn't what it sounded like. "Oh, dammit". Yep, he did say it. I told him that was a bad word and he couldn't say it. He replies "Holy Moly". I said that was a little bit better. Later on he says it again and when Todd said he couldn't say that word, he smiles at Todd and says it one more time. Todd tries the ole soap in the mouth trick, why I don't know. He said took just a dab of hand soap and rubbed it on Aiden's tongue and says "Does that taste good?" Aidens says "Mmmmm, yeah" Great Todd, thanks.

Our cat is certifiably insane. Luckily, he's awfully cute too. NOTHING is safe in this house, let me tell you. I should lock him up when we go to bed at night because that is when he d0es most of his troublemaking. He knocked off and broke a ceramic flower pot on my dining room floor. He's taken off with my sunglasses twice. He's taken a cup with a bunch of those single serving drink packets in it and toted them off to various parts of the house. He's leaped off the top of the refridgerator when Todd was getting a snack. ( I would have had a heart attack) He nonchalantly walked out of my kitchen last night carrying a plastic snack bag of goodies with him. He will play with dishes left in the sink, knock anything off of the counters that is left on them, will find balls and other toys under the couch and bat them around the house at 3 am, including running back and forth behind the blinds on our BIG front window. Clackity, clack, clack. But then he comes and curls up on my legs and sleeps with me at night. Yep, he knows how to work it. Lately he's gotten in more trouble than my boys! One good thing, my kitchen counters will never have clutter on them again, if they do, I may never see that stuff again!

Alexis has been losing teeth like crazy lately - they do find it fascinating and it does hurt sometimes. I have 3 insance cats - HA! Have a good day - Kellan

That is too funny! I imagine my five year old will be scared of loosing a tooth too. I think it is just loosing a part of your body. It must seem crazy to them.

My five year old also said damn last night. He was trying to fix a toy and he says, "I can't get this DAMN thing back on!". Man, it is really hard not to laugh. But of course I didn't. But I wanted to.

Alex, my oldest hates to lose teeth. He will actually not eat or even move his mouth much. We have pulled 3 of them while he was sleeping because they were SO loose we were worried he would swallow one.....which he did end up doing - twice! Ethan, my 7 year old - if a tooth even might be a tiny bit loose, he yanks the thing out! Those bleed a lot but he doesn't care. It is so funny how different they are.
I love the soap in the mouth thing! Yumm. LOL! Now he will be eating it all the time. ;)

Great stories. I can totally see Noah being so sensitive about the loose tooth...lets hope after the first experience he realizes how easy it is.
The story about Aiden cracks me up. Ty is the king of "naughty words" right now (must come from his potty mouth parents, I know- we're trying to work on it) and soap didn't make much of a difference either. The only thing that works for us is to ignore it when he says them. Although Blake is sure to point it out when Ty uses them. Makes it hard to ignore.
Look on the bright side with Grayson...at least he's not hiding anymore:)

Thanks for visiting my blog! Peyton has 2 big teeth behind his baby ones. He has always done fine at the dentist but when I took him to have this looked at he TOTALLY flipped out. I have to take him back and have him sedated to have 4 teeth pulled and xrays done. Cade is 4 and sadly does not mind the taste of soap either.

That is too cute! For a while there Landon lost a tooth every time he bit into a chicken nugget so for a little while we had poultryphobia...I think your cat had identity issues sounds like he thinks he's a dog..LOL

Aunt Cindy said...

Who are YOU trying to kid. I remember a little girl that had a tooth hanging by a thread for DAYS and wouldn't pull it!!! I do feel bad Noah is afraid to lose his teeth though. I hope he overcomes it when he sees it is not SO bad.

That Aiden...what a stinker. I washed Eric's mouth out with soap EIGHT times in a row when he kept sticking his tongue out at me...that was when I knew I had a child more stubborn than me. No more soap.

Go Grayson...he's keeping you on your toes, and making his presence known. I hope the 'cuddle times' out weigh the 'terror times'. I love picturing him with a snack bag in his mouth walking out of the kitchen.

hahaha How cute is that?? (the tooth story)
And I'm pretty sure all cats have multiple personalities. They raise hell to the point that you are sure you will give them away to the next bidder, then they go and do something cute like nuzzle right up next to you for the night. *sigh* Those crazy kitties!

Mom said...

And which parent do you think Noah is taking after...Cindy pointed it out before I could! You were the worst with losing teeth-I think if you could have pushed them back in you would have! ANd when I wished for a dog to walk with-and got Maggie...you wanted Grayson to be more friendly and playful....got what you wished for!! to the extreme!

I HATE TOOTH DRAMA!!!
It stinks because unless you snag it out in their sleep (which by the way is a GREAT idea)...you have no control over it...and they know it!

Aiden: "Dammit Noah, get over it!"
Me: Holy Moly Noah..just kidding ;)

I would have laughed if my kids say DAMMIT. It must seem so funny coming out of the mouth of such a cutie pottie. LOL.
