He's looking like a Jack-o-Lantern

Okay, I've heard you all complaining about how long it's been since I've blogged. It's been two whole weeks. As you've seen, I'm having HTML issues. I'll eventually fix that...somehow. In the meantime, here's a blog posting for you...

R had four teeth fall out in 10 days.

#1 Fell out at Aunt Shari's coffee bar in California
#2 Fell out was knocked out by his brothers bony bottom (when he sat/thumped/crashed down on R's face while wrestling)
#3 came out while I was reading Narnia as a bedtime story. R kept working it and working it, then said, "here's another one, mom"
#4 Fell out at about 8:30 pm after R had been in bed for half an hour. I didn't know it was so close to coming out. Evidently, he did, since he spent that half an hour wiggling it back and forth in bed.

Now that he is missing four teeth, he can't bite into anything at all. Whenever I see him with his hands in his mouth, I say, "stop wiggling your teeth! You won't be able to eat anything!" R seems to think that is funny.

He went from being the "only boy in second grade with all his baby teeth in his mouth" to a crazy looking jack-o-lantern boy who is as pleased as punch (that's a saying that you start saying when you start getting old -- pleased as punch.) You'll see in the picture below that not only does his mouth look crazy, but he needs a haircut REALLY BAD. He is completely missing his top two teeth and his new ones on the bottom are barely coming in.

Just to prove that he has all of his baby teeth, here is T doing some sort of cheer on his birthday last month (maybe he was just excited that he got to have birthday cake for breakfast! After, of course, eating yogurt so his mom would feel like she wasn't a terrible mom for feeding her kid cake for breakfast.)

Got the latest R picture (jack-o-lantern boy) on my desktop now, and it sure brings me a smile every time! The haircut, or lack thereof, really adds to it.
That #3 tooth was the one he told me was "hanging by a thread."
Yessiree, we're all pleased as punch around here with your new blog!

Love that Pumpkin Boy picture - it's the ear-to-ear smile that just makes me smile right back. And who ever heard of birthday cake for breakfast? Besides Bill Cosby . . . since it is made of wheat, milk, and eggs . . . Four teeth in ten days . . . he's gonna break the TF if he keeps that up!

YES....You're back! We so enjoy the way your blog keeps us up with all of you. R, sorry you lost your teeth....hope you find them soon. (Silly Me)What can you eat? Sure looks handsome with that huge toothless smile. T,don't laugh too hard at R, this will happen to you sooner than you think. Cake for birthday breakfast, what a great idea. This could become a family tradition.
Looking forward to our visit.
