Mommy Moments

So I guess for this mommy moment we have to go back to December 2011. My son came home from school with an ice pack in his hand. I asked him what had happened and he told me he hit his face on the back of another boys head..........OUCH! But all seemed okay and of course I figured well the school didn't call so it must not have been to bad. Fast forward a couple of weeks and they start to turn black. I FREAKED OUT! These were his ADULT teeth now he would not have teeth and would be subjected to every little brat kid in school teasing him. We went to the dentist and did everything possible to keep the teeth IN his head. Well about a month ago the kids got to being rough and he ended up kicked in the mouth. Within 2 days tooth number one was gone :*( then yesterday it was time for number 2 to fall out. By this time I had come to peace with having to get him implants, I had talked it over with the dentist and knew the price. Well last night my boys come RUNNING into the living room screaming MOM MOM! HE HAS TEETH COMING IN! LOL so now I must ask myself, did he really get adult teeth?? Why didn't the dentist mention these teeth?? Or is he just one of those strange kids with more then 2 Which still doesn't answer the dentist question. Happy Monday everyone :O)


Did you know I am a dentist? I can answer any question any time for you!!! Just dm me or email anytime!!

Mellissa Hanks said…
No just an accident thankfully :O)
Thank goodness it was just an accident! You will have to let us all know the outcome...I am very curious to know if he did have a second set of adult teeth?

Awesome news! I am so glad to hear he has two new ones coming in!!! This will save you some money now since you won't have to get implants, and will be more comfortable for him having his own real teeth. Congrats little fella!

I'm scouring pictures trying to figure it out! I hope they are teeth!

I'm sorry this happened.

Who knows. I imagine dentists get busy and can't keep up either so I guess giving the dentist the benefit of the doubt will work once. Glad he is getting teeth.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back
