She Didn’t Know What Hit Her

25 Jun

Well, that’s not entirely accurate. She did know. He’s about 3 feet tall, weighing 35 or so pounds, blonde hair, blue eyes and wild with energy.

She definitely knew Nate clocked her in the kisser, what she didn’t know is that he knocked out her latest loose tooth.

Two Teefs, One Week

Before my mom picks up the phone to call me in horror (you still can mom, just finish reading first!) know that they were playing and no medical attention was needed. Sure, it was pretty rough playing and I’m not dismissing the seriousness of the punch. I just wanted to stress that the punch wasn’t thrown in anger. They were wrestling, giggling, all fun and games playing until someone gets a bloody mouth.

It wasn’t until I had Nate properly placed in time out while I tended to Nia that I realized there was a hole where a wobbly tooth once lived. Nia was calm through the check up but then I said, “He knocked out your tooth!” She then became hysterical that her precious pearly white was lost and feared that she wouldn’t get a tooth fairy visit. (She cried harder about that then the punch in the face.) The tiny tooth was recovered and all was well – well, except for the slugger in the corner.

He was punished (time out served, a intense talking-to and video game confiscated) but I believe the happiness Nia had about her missing tooth will be confusing for him. She practically thanked him. “The tooth fairy will come now!”
