Today at home:
6 yo niece (face bloody): WAAAAAH! Mommy! I lost 2 teeth!
Sis and me: oh no! are you okay! what happened? which teeth?
6 yo niece: the ones that were wiggly!
Me: phew!!!!! what happened?
Niece: I don’t know! they just came out! Now I can’t find them!
Sis: what were you doing? where were you?
Niece: *crying* I don’t know!
Me: Let’s ask my daughter.
7 yo Daughter comes downstairs with a funny expression.
Me: what happened?
Daughter: we were playing tug of war!
Me: did someone hit her in the face?
Daughter: I don’t know. No. We didn’t.
Me: I don’t get it, what happened? How did her teeth come out?
Daughter: We were playing tug of war with our mouths*–
They wanted me to write a story about this, but I decided on a blog post.
*”with our mouths” as in they were using their mouths to tug the ribbon they were using.
