Layne lost his fifth tooth this week! And of couse it happened at the worst possible time! We were already running late for school. We had about 5 minutes before we needed to be in the car pulling out of the driveway and the boys were brushing their teeth. I new Layne’s tooth was loose, I just didn’t think it was that loose! As he was brushing his teeth the tooth started bleeding. He started to freak out a little. I told him it was ok and that we would mess with it after school. “No! It has to come out now. I can’t go to school with it this way?” By the time we finally got it out all three of my children were crying and I felt like I needed some kind of sedative! Why couldn’t this have happened when Brian was off, I kept thinking to myself. I tossed him a wet washcloth and told him to bite down on that on the way to school, and scooted them out the door. Layne was only 2 minutes late for school (which was a miracle) and I didn’t even get a speeding ticket! The tooth fairy came that night and everything was just fine!
