Sunday Surprises!

So knowing our family, would a Sunday really be complete out our house without a minor emergency? Apparently our children don't think so.

Tonight we sent Ronny off to Stake Priesthood meeting and the kids and I made a deal. If they would clean up the family room we could watch a Sunday movie and pop popcorn until Dad came home. I started them cleaning and headed upstairs to call a friend about something that happened in nursery today. It wasn't too long before I heard yells and tears downstairs. I tried to ignore it in hopes the kids would work it out themselves until I heard the magic words, "Mom Charley's bleeding and there's blood everywhere!" That'll get you moving. I got off the phone headed downstairs to see Charley spitting blood up blood, so I ushered her to the sink and tried to get the story from the boys. What I got was, "I don't want to tell you mom because you'll get mad at me", from Joseph. After seeing the look I gave him he decided fessing up was the better option.

It turns out Charley was spraying Joseph with the water bottle, Joseph got mad, threw a soccer ball at her face and the result was one permanent tooth broken in Charley's mouth. I called my neighbor back to come and get the boys and we headed out to find Dad and decide if we should go to the emergency room or call the on call dentist. There was so much blood at that time I couldn't tell how bad the damage was and wasn't sure if her gums were bleeding. By the time we got to the church the bleeding had stopped, we found Ronny, and could tell it was one broken tooth but the root was exposed. We headed back home, Ronny called Uncle Aaron and I called the dentist. We also were able to find the broken tooth on the floor and quickly got it in some salt water.

We find out tomorrow if the tooth can be saved and wether or not she has to have a root canal. Joseph and Charley hopefully learned a lesson tonight all be it an expensive one. Lets just say they won't be doing anything other than extra chores for a few days!

Oh, way too much drama! I'll be thankful for simple skinned knees and splinters this summer. Hope it's a quick recovery.

Good luck with everything! I hope Charley's tooth was ok.
I loved Sunday movies and popcorn. It's good to see great traditions carried on.
