All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!

Who would have thought my five year old could sing that this Christmas and really mean it!

Saturday Mikayla was bouncing on her bouncey ball and fell face first onto the laundry room floor. There was amazingly no blood. However, both her top center teeth got pushed in all sorts of funny ways. Funny enough that I called and we made an emergency visit to the dentist.

We went back in bright and early this morning. After X-rays and another exam, both top center teeth were pulled. The dentist also pulled one of her lower teeth that refused to come out on its own and already had an adult tooth growing in behind it. Mikayla did amazingly well throughout it all. 99% of her crying was just from being nervous. The one time she did feel a bit of pain, the dentist was very caring and gave her another injection to numb her gum up a bit more.

She's doing awesome tonight and not complaining at all about sore gums. I'm so thankful that it was her baby teeth that got injured and not her adult teeth. We do need to go back in 6 months so he can examine her adult teeth that take place of the pulled baby teeth. He wants to make sure there have been no injuries to them. Nothing showed up on the x-ray, but we won't know for sure until they come in.
