A conversation

Thursday morning: Cayden comes downstairs complaining that her front tooth hurts. My first thought is "great, I can't get to the dentist today." I ask her why, what happened, etc. I try really hard to get the story out of her. She's reluctant at first, but slowly it comes out.

"I bumped my tooth," she says. "On what?" I ask. "On my lamp in my room," comes the response. "Oh, are you okay," I ask again. "It really hurts," she says. I ask the obvious, "Well, how did it happen?" This is where it gets interesting. Her reply, "Well, I kissed it and then I bumped my tooth." "And why did you kiss your lamp?" "I was pretending I was married to it." Okay, not sure what's going on in her head but we quickly move to the breakfast discussion. "My tooth hurts but I want to have breakfast." "What would you like?" I ask. "I better have oatmeal. It's softer."

Never a dull moment around here, and the tooth is just fine now. Oh, and she's been eating oatmeal every day since.

  1. So funny! Seriously, I've read it at least five times. Every time I get to the "I was pretending to be married to it" line, I burst out into hysterical laughter! Love it!
