Keeping My Teeth Can Be A Real Pain

This granddaughter is very happy about losing her pretty little front baby teeth. She was rewarded nicely by the Tooth Fairy and is looking forward to her shiny new "grown-up" teeth. I am recovering from dental work done today to hopefully save my "grown-up" teeth and the Tooth Fairy didn't even give me pain pills. OUCH ! My mouth hurts, keeping our teeth can be a real pain.

Yeah, I agree, they are more valuable than diamonds! How come I didn't get a tooth ring for my wedding?!

Dolores said...

She looks so cute!!!!!

I feel for you..... dental work is no fun and expensive too, but...... our teeth are more valuable than diamonds...so true.

Hope you have a good weekend!

I agree completely. I hope your mouth heals completely...and quickly!

I remember those days! My Dad used to pull mine and my sister's teeth in our living room. Hugs and prayers for a easy and fast recovery.

Ha! This is so true! I won't even say how many years it has been since I have seen a dentist. No insurance means no dentist visits. So, I floss nightly and brush at least 2x's a day...preventative medicine!

sorry about the sore mouth - sounds like a good reason for dare we say it ---ICE CREAM?

Karen said...

Yes, they are valuable! I am missing and few and the fake ones are pretty annoying! Hope you are feeling better. Your granddaughter looks adorable and she's RICH!

Love the quote and it's OH so true! Hope you feel better soon; perhaps you should have asked for mild pain pills?

I must agree about how important it is to keep one's teeth! After difficult pregancies when I was young and inheriting a tendancy to get cavities, I've spent a fortune of my teeth! Seems like whenever I might have a little extra to buy new furniture or appliances or new tile for the kitchen, something happens to my teeth and there it goes!
Your little granddaughter is precious!

Especially if ya have some crowns! I have nine of 'em. Before I retired from Special Ed. this Ozark Farm Chick spent her new car money on my teeth. Dentist got the new rig! Heeehehe!

God bless and have a glorious day.

I pray your pain is taken care of...no fun!

Hello there dear Kathy,

Many thanks for your kind words and prayers last week for dear Pam.

Last week's tea post was beyond adorable; those darling little turkeys in the teacups.., Oh my!
So charming!

Such an adorable little one with those missing front teeth; I do hope and pray that your tooth woes are over soon; no fun!

Thanks also for taking part with last week's TTTT and also with my
80th, Tuesday Tea For Two.., We always love having you join in the fun with us!..,

Pam was much improved when they left for home last week; I'm delighted to be back in the swing of things once again with my own blogs as well!..,

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

and i should know, i only have four or five of my God given teeth left. it runs in the family. but i've adapted fine to the alternative although they do come off sometimes and the whole familt gets a laugh out of that as you can imagine.

i am preparing a package for you at long last. i have saved your padded envelope forever to have your address. all in God's time I gather.

love you very very very much beautiful woman and that's an understatment as tears come to my eyes. you have no idea how i realte to you.

Losing a tooth is a lot easier when we're young. I hope granddaughter willl be as perky in the future as she is now. Most of us adults react with a big ouch!!

She's still cute even without the two front teeth, and quite obviously happy with the Tooth Fairy’s reward. Too bad it isn’t the same for grown-ups. Our “Tooth Fairy” can only give us painkillers, and it isn’t even enough sometimes. I hope that dental work was able to save your teeth.
