Two front teeth

Last week Kristen lost her other front tooth. She would NOT let me try to pull it and it really needed to come out. It was barely hanging on. I had to take her to the doctor for tonsilitis so while we were there the doctor and I were able to convince her to let the doctor give it one try...and it came out easily. It bled quite a bit which she didn't like at all...but she was happy to have the tooth fairy come for a visit :)

Evenings around here are always hectic...after working all day then I cook dinner, clean up, homework, bath, laundry, any cleaning to be done, pay bills, e-mail, etc., etc., and try to get to bed at a decent hour. I work from home and when I'm having my busiest times I will work into the evenings, just getting a little work done in between dinner and bath or any free minutes I can get more work done. I'm also terrible about getting distracted when I go into a room to do something then I see something else to do and I get off course from what I was originally doing. So on one of those nights I was very busy with work, I had started something for Kristen in one room, then gone to another room to get some things, then walked through the office and saw an e-mail I needed to take action on....so I sat down and worked for a little bit and was concentrating on figuring it out and Kristen was sitting on the couch and then she yelled out to me for something...it was at that moment I remembered what I had started for her. I RAN to the bathroom and turned the water off just in the nick of time.

So that's not just an "oldtimer's" problem, huh?

Your post made me laugh! I am the exact same way. We moms have too much on our plate sometimes! One time I started filling the utility sink in my laundry room in our basement and then went about my life...and proceeded to flood the basement! It was not pretty! Glad you remembered just in time!

Too funny! Heidi just lost her other front tooth, too. They are just too cute without front teeth.
