He’s fine… We were told we were very lucky that he still has front teeth. He’s pretty sore, but seemingly happy.
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Oh my goodness! Poor kiddo!

Agreed… we need words!! Poor little guy! 😦 So glad he is okay!

Yep, words . . . what happened?!

We were at the neighbor’s and he was pounding on their coffee table and went to sit down and slammed his front teeth into the coffee table. He bled like crazy – I mean – blood streaming out of his mouth. The neighbor checked to make sure he still had teeth (I was too scared to look) and he did, but he wouldn’t let us touch his mouth. I called the pediatric dentist who wanted him to come in today since there was so much bleeding. The dentist walks in and says, “let me guess – coffee table accident?” She said that 90% of front teeth accidents in kids his age range are caused by coffee tables. She told us that we’re very lucky that he still has teeth and that they’re not displaced at all. He tore the membrane between his lip and gum really badly and that’s why he’s so tender and bloody.
He’s going to be fine… but until I knew that, I was very upset. I do not like mouth issues at all – they make me sick and to see that much blood coming from my child’s mouth was just too much for me.

Holy shit! Having taken HGB to the dentist TWICE for chipped teeth, I feel your pain mama! Poor M! Oh, buddy! 🙂

Oh oh no!

Oh my god! Poor Matthew!!! What a scary situation too! I HATE mouth issues. They bleed so freaking much. Sofia bit her tongue last week when she stumbled (on the coffee table!) and the blood was everywhere. I totally freaked but luckily it was nothing compared to this. I am so glad that Matthew is going to be just fine!!!!!

Blood from the mouth = worst thing ever for a mother (so far)!

Oh, no! Poor little guy 😦 He looks pretty calm in that photo which is impressive.
Coffee tables are evil.

B’s been telling me how evil coffee tables are for weeks now, and I didn’t believe him. I believe him now.

Wow!! And I thought Chloe’s little swollen lip was about to send me over the edge. I hate mouth/teeth injuries too. SOOOO glad he will be ok, but I can’t imagine how awful that was for both of you. These poor little guys, they just want to be big and independent, and have no fear. 😦 Chloe’s getting better with giving kisses…I’ll make sure she gives Matthew one in hopes it makes him feel better. 🙂

I can’t believe how fearless these kids have become. I think I have enough fear for Matthew and me combined right now!

Good to hear he’s okay. Poor fella.
