Last Saturday I had my first real scare as a mother. In some crazy freak accident, my 13 month old child knocked her tooth out. That’s right. She knocked the entire front tooth clear out of her mouth. Desirae was in her crib, down for her morning nap. I’m not exactly sure when she woke up,… Continue reading Toothless
