Talk about craziness

Two days ago about 7:00 a.m Marley was heading up the stairs as usual. She has a fetish with stairs! As some of you know we have wicked wood stairs so every time Marley goes by them I take her away and put up the gate! This particular Morning Matt was right by her. Matt turned away for just a moment and Marley started to fall. She fell down three stairs when Daddy caught her but the damage had already been done. Blood was pouring out of her mouth. She just barley got her two bottom front teeth(the only teeth she has) they were knocked down into her gums and forward. Her gums have a big laceration. I called the doctor to bring her in. I gave Marley some Ibuprofen and left the bottle on the counter with the lid on! I went to go get dressed and came back out and saw marley playing with an empty bottle of Ibuprofen(which was more than half way full) I started to freak out! she didn't drink it cuz it would have been poured down the front of her and she would have smelled like grape medicine. Taj was over in the corner with a little smile on his face. ( about six months ago he drank 1/4 of a bottle of benedryl and we spent all day in the emergency room watching him cuz it could cause seizures and comas. so you can imagine I was so worried) he almost drank a whole bottle I was crying and told him he can't do that cuz I don't want him to die! Then he knew I was serious and that it was not so funny that mom was freaking out and crying and he started to frown( which is good cuz I want him to know this is serious stuff) I called poison control( great people who work there very caring!) He said ibuprofen is different than benedryl and that he would have had to drink 1 and 1/2 bottles for it to be toxic to his little body. ( He felt great all day nothing he did could hurt :) ) So I was relieved, but still had Marley to deal with. We ended up having to take her to a pediatric dentist and he said she has a 50/50 chance of keeping her teeth, but he felt like we would probably have to pull them. How sad! We go in a week to see if hopefully they have reattached to the gums if not, she will not have teeth there until she is 5 or 6! Marley as you know is so Happy and still is. This has not affected the way she is. She still is smiley and says Hi to everyone. She even started to walk yesterday! so cute Her is a clip of her first day of cruising around the house.

OH man! that sucks! milo just did the same thing to his two front teeth on the 4-wheeler. At least he was about due to lose his soon anyway! But poor Marley!
