Poor Honor knocked out her loose tooth yesterday. It was more than ready to come out, but it was an unpleasant surprise anyway, and bled quite a lot as she bumped it in the bath and may have cut her gum a little. She handled it very well, at first. She got out of her bath, called me in, handed me the tooth, told me “Mom, I think we should call Daddy too.” (a 2-parent alarm!). Brad came in too, and we both helped her clean out her mouth. Then she got a bit teary and upset… it did bleed a lot, and she had wanted to pull it herself, who could blame her? So I comforted her as girls should be comforted… by dressing her up in a pretty flowery galebeya, a multicolor manicure, and new hairstyle! With ruffles, lace, and curls! She looked just like a pretty little doll … although the missing tooth added a mischievous tone!
This morning, she is back to normal. Kids camped out on the living room sofas, and got up early to play computer. Honor has been making a family to play in Sim2, and Brian is playing Chessmaster 9000. Lucky kids are off school today for an admin day, but I’ve got work to do, and Brad’s at the office like normal. Looks like a nice, quiet day at home – which is probably a good thing, I think it’s forecast to be a hot one today.
