What is about me and teeth?

Just Real Fast: Shannon over at the NutHouse...gave me a sweet reward...and I just wanted to publicly thank her...check here to see what the award is...I want to reward it to others so here is how they say to choose the 5 people it should go to:

Do you know any bloggers that kick a#$?
Maybe they've got incredible, original content. Or they're overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a bloggy friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it's someone who simply inspires you to be a better person... or someone else who sends you to the floor, laughing your (butt) off.

So thanks Shannon...you're the best! And I'm giving the reward to Binks: Because she is hilarious and not enough people know about her! Mrs.B-because she is a witch...literally(I think that falls into the overflowing with creativity category)! Candid Carrie-because she lets me participate in Friday Foto Finish Fiesta and Field trips and we google chat...which is totally awesome! Such the Spot: Because I blog stalk her and she doesn't even know it...oh hey, if you are visiting, Hi...I blog stalk you! Finally--Insane Mama and her live-in boyfriend Pee in the Wind...because Insane Mama's stuff is raw and written extremely well...and Pee in the Wind because he's just real...tells it like it is!--I probably won't tell them I gave them this award...because they don't even really know me...well her boyfriend doesn't...so if you know them...and want to pass on the news...that would be appreciated! lol!

Also T-over here gave me the Brillant Blog award again and I wanted to give her a public shout out also...seriously guys...I'm glad somebody realizes my true star potential! :) Okay back to the regular scheduled programming! :)

I'm sorry it's another tooth post...this one does NOT have to do with my co-workers (thank goodness)...

I am so obsessed to the point of psychotic when it comes to teeth...I don't know what it is, but I feel teeth are a very distinguishing factor of anyone!

I cringe when I see yellow teeth...they make me somewhat sick to my stomach...if that makes me shallow...then don't dive in me, because I am just that shallow! I'm sorry but it's true.

What makes it all worse...is that I don't have ridiculously perfect teeth like most of my family members...(I'm not gonna lie here or sugar coat anything, but most of them received this perfection through braces...except for one, my older brother, Traveler...his are natural and I hate him for it!)...anyway, I have spaces in my teeth, but they are white and clean and I take them to the Dentist to get worked on and prettied up...but they are not perfect by any means...

yet I judge...it's a true fact...and if I can't be honest here, on my blog, then I'm lost...so here is my total human state for you to condem and judge...it's okay, I have broad shoulders, just remember this picture?

Anyhow, I should have been a dentist or a Hygenist or something, except I would vomit all over any patient who had abbhorent teeth...and then I would be fired with no really good references and then where would I be? So, I didn't go that route...

Being a Mom you have to deal with some pretty nasty stuff...like poop, and vomit, and boogers...and the list goes on. I'm okay with that stuff...except for the smell of vomit, it makes me vomit, so maybe cross vomit of my list of stuff I can handle as a mom...so just make it poop and boogers...but give me that any day then having to deal with this...

A tooth falling out and leaving a redneck space in the middle of his nice set of teeth! I know...sick right? I'm silently dry heaving in my mouth while looking at this picture...Besides yellow teeth, I have found I HATE loose teeth on kids. They shake and shimmy and play with it until it falls out and it just plain makes me squirm...and my kid knows it...

This is all I asked for...a pleasant smile, kinda hide the sick part of the gross, empty, redneck space in your tooth, so we can document this and I can lay down and find my balance again, because the sight of it was making me sick!

What a good little man...

and weird...I'll be the first to admit...I have strange children. I'm sure part of that stems from me and my crazy raising of them...but part of that is natural, and scary...yet I love it...does that make me strange or normal?

I mean, my daughter sat and begged for me to take pictures of her reaction to DCar's space in his once perfect, beautiful, set of 6-year old teeth...

She wanted to show you guys what my face looked like when DCar showed me his yuck dead tooth...(I think she came pretty close)

And how I looked when he showed me the space in his mouth...(I think I was a little more like "ewww" faced...but this was her thing...and who was I to argue?)

Then she had to show us DCar's reaction to making me squirm and getting me all sicked out! Sweet of her right?
But then DCar had to do this...He said that is how I truly looked when I saw his mouth...he thinks it's hilarious that I am so sicked out by it...he would constantly say, "Hey Mom...look!" and I would look over and he would push his tooth out with his tongue...GROSS!!!

Well he is really proud of himself. He walked to school with extra excitement in his step...couldn't wait to show all his new grill...or lack thereof!

I must have some surpressed memory with my own teeth and falling out and being yellow and such.

So what do you think it is? I need to know? What is it with me and teeth?

I feel the same way! Only because in Alaska-(I'm Eskimo)...some of the fellow natives have teeth falling out. So, I'm really impressed with good teeth. I don't have perfect teeth-like Donny Osmond, but I admire people who do!

mrsb said...

LOL, just wait til one of them looses 3 or 4 at the same time and they look like a jack-o-lantern!

The next clue will be in that same place where you put her last name. Don't worry I'll help! Did you check it out over there at momdot? It's addicting so don't look at close ! :)

I judge too! I don't have perfect teeth but I'm grateful that I have teeth! I had braces but I didn't wear the retainer after sooo they are not straight but that's okay. My issue with teeth is that they have to be clean.
It's kinda like a car. It doesn't have to be the perfect Mustang or whatever but take some pride in it. Wash it, keep it polished and for goodness fake PLEASE keep it smelling nice!!

Such cute kiddies you have! Love the pics.

My oldest girl just now has her 1st loose tooth (she's 7!)... I really hope Shane is around when its time for that thing to come out. I don't mind to see it wiggle, but when its time to pull it... and the blood... ugh, this better not happen while Shane is at work!


P.S. I've got something for you at my blog... come get it :)

Natalie Sue said...

Hmmm... I remember that I loved having loose teeth and pulling them out when I was little. I was also very interested in helping my brothers get their loose teeth out. I wonder how I will be with my own kids...? Maybe the same. I'll have to see.
But this is a hilarious post and I love the pics. Especially your kids mimicking your faces. Funny mooments!

mrsb said...

Holy Macaroni! Thanks, Shelle! That's my very first ever blog award!!!

Aubrey said...

Congrats on your awards. You are Kick A$$!!
Your obsession with teeth cracks me up!! It's perfectly normal, I'm sure.

Kenz said...

Mase got a kick out of DCar losing his top tooth too! I know, sick huh! But yet they think it's so cool to lose teeth. And the money they get for losing them, we're just aiding in that coolness!

DeGraffenried's said...

My obsession with teeth is when they become loose - even just the slightest bit. I have to work and work on it until it comes out! I loved to pull my teeth and I love pulling my kids and neices and nephews out until they all finally decided they could do it themselves!

Amanda said...

How can such tiny teeth leave such big gaping holes? The losing teeth thing is totally not for me either.

American in Norway said...

I am a tooth freak as well! Can't help it, but I find my self judging people with BAD teeth.... like coffee & tobacco stained teeth... How bout a little floss? Super pitures of your babies...,. great blog!
