A Popscicle Kind of Day

Warning:  Gross, bloody, poor quality photo ahead.

Yesterday my girls ate an obscene amount of popscicles. 

This is why.......

Molly fell out of her chair while coloring. 

I. Freaked. Out.  I don't think I have ever seen so much blood coming out of one of my children.  I was losing my mind.  I called Jason and told him what was going on.  Then I told him, "I have no idea what to do."  And I didn't.  So I called the doctor.  Turns out there is nothing to be done for almost biting your tongue off.  NOTHING.  Just give her some tylenol or motrin.  That's it.  My kid's mouth is gushing blood, her tongue looks like she bit all the way through (she didn't) and all I can do is give her some tylenol.  Oh, and popscicles. 

So we have been eating popscicles.  Tons of popscicles. 

Oh, and I have been reminded why kids should not stand up in chairs.  No more standing in chairs at this house. 


  1. Oh dear God in Heaven!!! Oh Tracy. Oh. I want to vomit and cry at the same time.
    Poor Molly.

  2. Sadly we were right there with Bella last October...although in addition to biting THROUGH her bottom lip she shoved her top teeth back up into her gums. Yep. Three visits to a pediatric orthodontist later and her front teeth still have descended again. Sigh.

    Hope Molly feels better soon!!

  3. poor sweet girl. poppy will pray that you heal super quick and that Jesus will take away all your pain. we love you so much and are sad that this happened. usually some one will get their eye poked out but this, oh my goodness!
