Why Am I So Excited?!

Because my boy just discovered that he has his first loose tooth! WOOHOO for the big boy! (Waaaaaah! for me) The next 2 younger than him cousins have already lost a couple of teeth, and while it didn't seem to bother Daniel, I was starting to wonder if it would ever happen for him. I have heard of people that never lost their baby teeth and so are walking around as adults with little tiny baby teeth in their mouths. I was afraid Daniel would be one of those flukie things, but mostly I was concerned about it because he has a couple of teeth that grew in pitted, and I am anxious to find out if his adult teeth are going to be weird like mine. I hope it's just all the antibiotics I was on for ear infections that caused my lack of enamel and not genetics, but when his baby teeth grew in like that it scared me.

LOL! I bet Jonni is about to bust with pride! Wasn't she just lamenting her lack of lost teeth?

I hope the Georgia tooth fairy isn't retarded too.

The Marinator said...

LOL! I hope she isn't either, but from what I understand, the Georgia tooth fairy likes to kick back with a little moonshine distilled in the hills around here, and that she likes to pay boys and girls in Confederate coin.

I couldn't believe it but this morning, 2 days after we discovered my son's loose tooth, his new one is growing in behind the baby tooth. I told him to wiggle it as much as he can today so we can loosen it up enough to pull it tonight or tomorrow. Hopefully tonight - I don't want his teeth to grow in all crooked.

crowded mary, not crooked. crowded. and as long as that baby tooth doesn't hang around for years, it should straighten out. if not, talk to your dentist. man, this race of ours to lose the first tooth is getting HOT! i'm not sure we can get jonni's pulled in the next day or two! oh well. at least she's taller. (i'm laughing to myself because that's john defense to everything. "at least i'm taller!")

Hey M-dog I love that "If you wanna be happy" song on your playlist!!

Only problem is Liz always gets sad when I listen to it... She wants to know whether I am unhappy or if she is ugly... sigh.

The Marinator said...

LOL! At least she's taller! Poor Daniel. I hope he grows to be 6'8" just to show everyone! The tooth didn't come out tonight. It just isn't ready yet. I've told him to keep working on it and wiggling it, so maybe tomorrow night it'll come out. Jeremy wanted to pull it anyway, but I asked him how much difference he thinks a day or two will make. You know, I remember my teeth seeming like they took FOREVER (maybe a couple of weeks) to come out once they came loose, does it really only take a couple of days, or is Daniel just a little freak?

John- That's because she needs to hear you say something nice to her - tell her you're miserable! Really though, does she not realize that it's just a song? Silly girl. Liz- not only are you beautiful, but John is way happy. Not all pretty girls make their husbands miserable. That would be like saying that all Baptists are snake handlers! (*wink T*)

PS- I used to listen to and like this song when I was very young, but it used to mess with me too (of course I was 6) I would always ask my dad after hearing that song if he thought I would grow up to be beautiful, because I wanted to be pretty AND make my husband happy, but didn't know if it was possible after hearing the song! This is an example of a stupid but catchy song that should be enjoyed for what it is: a stupid but catchy song. Did you know that it was recorded in the studio's bathroom? Yeah, it was.

Renae said...

Liz is offended by the "eyes don't match" line.

Liz, you are a beautiful person nonetheless.

The Marinator said...

LOL! I always think of Liz when I hear that line too! But I think what they mean by that is her eyes don't point the same direction...but that wouldn't work out well lyrically. That's how I always took it anyway. Everyone who knows Liz thinks her eyes are cool.

Dana Cheryl said...

I've never heard this song. I guess I should click through the playlist and listen, huh?

Eyepoke said...

Poor Dana- a world traveler and yet she hasn't lived!
