Lolo Bear and her teeth

At the very end of May, Lo noticed she had a loose bottom tooth.  She was so excited and wanted it to come out so bad so that the tooth fairy would come. 

It has continued to just be a little loose, but then mid July she had an accident with the slide.  She fell and really banged up her mouth and teeth.  One of her top front teeth actually came out due to the accident and the others were knocked really loose.  We took her to the dentist and she did amazing!  They took x-rays and told us she may or may not lose the other three teeth prematurely. 

 She was so excited that her daddy and her found the missing tooth.  She could not wait for the tooth fairy to come.  She woke me up at 6 am to come to her room and see what the tooth fairy brought her.  It was so cute!

She had a check up two weeks later and her front teeth have tightened up some.  They may or may not tighten up completely. 

The dentist office is amazing!  I can not say enough good things about them and how they have treated her. 

This was a tough one for me though.  I know this accident could have been a lot worse, but it still just really stinks.  And while Lo has been so amazing and handled it like a champ, and while I am so very proud of her, my heart has just hurt.  At the time it hurt so bad and I was just so emotionally drained from so much going on.  I was reminded quickly that being a mom is really hard.  No one really tells you these things. No one really prepares you for the mental tolling it can take on you.  I am so blessed by these beautiful children and I thank God for entrusting me with them everyday.  My heart has grown a million times and simply swells with so much love for these little people.  I get so much joy watching them learn and grow that I can't even explain it.  But...that doesn't negate the fact that being a mom is hard.  Having to deal with childcare while also dealing with the guilt of working and being away from your children is really freaking hard.  Motherhood is the hardest and best journey of my life.
