Cruisin' for a Bruisin'

I walk in to day care on Thursday looking forward to having the next four days off, except for the fact I am doing a rummage sale. I check out the memo board and Miss Peanut Butter has one, an accident report. At first I'm like great, she bit someone again, since her biting me sure had increased since the removal of the nuk, but no she apparently walked behind someone swinging and took one in the kisser. It said she had a cut on her lip and that it had bleed about "1/4 of a cup." I don't know how they would measure that, but that is what was written. I'm prepared as I'm about to walk into her room, but she comes running out of another. She does have a cut and her mouth on the inside is still pretty bloody, yet she seems to be in good spirits. I get home and put her on the changer when I notice that one of her front teeth is a little shorter than the other and I'm panicked. They said nothing about a chipped tooth; I keep looking at it to see how bad it is when I realize it isn't chipped, but it is jammed up in her gums.
I tried to contact our dentist, he happens to be taking and even longer labor day weekend break and is out until Weds. but the very kind receptionist told me they just had something like that happen to a little boy and it should be fine unless the tooth changes color or she seems to be in pain. They are going to follow up when he gets back on Weds. She seems to be fine, the lip was looking pretty nasty yesterday and seems to be healing up today. He tooth doesn't seem to be bothering her and sadly all I can think about is the photo session I have booked on the 9th. I'm sure her lip will be healed, but I think we are stuck with a jammed up tooth. She just looks like she's been cruisin' for a bruisin'.
I did better than I had hoped at my rummage and I should do the responsible thing and save or pay bills with the money, but I'm going to stimulate the economy a little tomorrow. Nothing outrageous, I was going to buy an elliptical machine, but I think I'm going to hold off and buy a few small things, I normally wouldn't get and put the rest to the responsible things.

Ouch! Poor Pb. That must have hurt. I hope she is on the mends. Enjoy your "bonus" day off.

Poor Mags! I am glad that she doesn't seem any worse for the wear. Miss Maren has managed to chip both of her two front teeth - our dentist said the same thing . . . as long as it doesn't seem to be bugging her and it doesn't change colors, she is fine.

I SO want to buy an eliptical! I am already dreading the end of the walking season, because I know how quickly I will lose the summer's progress and how much it will hurt to start up again next spring.

Oh my goodness! Poor thing. She looks like she's handling things very well though. I hope all goes well at the dentist and no real damage was done.

Thanks for visiting my photo story!!

Poor pb. She is still as cute as ever. I am glad you had success with your rummage sale - I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

with kids there is always something... my son broke his arm five days before school started
(last week) and the very next day after spending 6 hours in the ER at Children's he has a scheduled orthodontis appt for his top braces. KIDS gotta love them! Hope things work out!

I know how you feel, my baby girl fell on our footstool and completely ripped her gums off - literally - gone. They are almost completely healed now teeth are ggod, we went to a ped Dentist when she fell and they same, look for white sores inside of her mouth on her gums, and grey teeth for damage to the nerves.

Poor Baby! I bet that really hurt-- kids heal so quickly though. I would still be rolling around in pain.
