Open Wide

A conversation with my almost 5 year old son:

Mommy, do you have to go to the hospital tomorrow for your operation?

Yep. Just for the day. I will only be gone a few hours.

Are you having an operation on your knee like Daddy?

Nope, on my teeth.

Are you going to have an operation on your shoulder like Grandpa?

No DJ, Mommy has to get 4 teeth pulled out and her other teeth repaired.

Are they going to yank your teeth out Mommy?

Well, kind of, the dentist will be careful and pull out my wisdom teeth that are way in the back of my mouth.

And a baby too?

Um. Pardon???!!!????

A baby. Every time you go to the hospital you come home with a baby. I would like a baby brother for Madigan, please. I have a baby brother and she should have one too.

Buddy, I do not think Mommy will be coming home with a baby tomorrow...a toothache and numb face, but no baby.

Oh...that's too bad.

I could not stop laughing. Good thing he didn't ask you if the Tooth Fairy was coming by too.

oh bless Laura! OUCH I am sorry you have to go through this. I'm sending you prayers of quick recovery. You know, I would rather have four teeth pulled than go through labor again though.

Aww. What a sweet conversation.

It is much more pleasant to come home from the hospital with a new baby than a swollen mouth.

Good luck on your surgery. I hope all goes well and smoothly. :)

I've been out of the loop! So sorry you had to have surgery. I've had friends who've gone through that and I know it's so painful!
Hope you feel better very soon!
