The Samsung ES8000 Smart TV was designed with the family in mind!  In addition to the great features for adults – there was special attention given to creating elements for kids.

Toddler Teeth Knocked Out (Or So We Thought!)

Toddler Teeth Knocked Out (Or So We Thought!)

MISSING TODDLER TEETH. Scary thought, right? Wanna know something even scarier – IT HAPPENED TO US. Crazy story that I have to tell you about our toddler, Izaiah. I’ll give you the whole run down, but the Cliff Note’s version is that he knocked his teeth into his GUMS. That’s right, insane. Keep reading… 

Missing Toddler Teeth

OMG, what a week it has been. Well actually, since last Thursday we have been in a downward spiral – grasping at any positive we can get.

teeth knocked into gums

Last Thursday, Izaiah had fallen asleep for his nap on the floor. He hadn’t been feeling well – and anytime this boy will sleep – we take it, even if it means it’s on the floor. And you don’t move him because well – he won’t go back to bed.

I am on the couch talking to our realtor when I hear a blood-curdling scream. I am running thru the house trying to find Izaiah. I find him on the floor of the kitchen, crying. I pick him up, still on the phone and go to tell our realtor I’ll call him back when I notice my arm is covered in blood. Oh the panic in both me and him was too much.

It appears that Izaiah was half awake when he went to sit on the chair (something he does several times a day) and fell (which he has done before). Poor buddy!

The first thought I had, was Izaiah must have hit his head. We experienced staples in the head before with E, so immediately jumped to that conclusion. Nope. No bleeding from the head. Oh, he must of bit his lip or tongue. I go to look in his mouth and sheer horror when I see that Izaiah has missing teeth. It looks like 2 or 3 of his teeth are broken off. I am in a state of FREAK OUT at this point.

Fortunately, my husband was working from home and Zeke was napping. We scoured the kitchen floor looking for his teeth – our toddler’s teeth were nowhere to be found.

Teeth Knocked Into His Gums

We made a few phone calls and rushed Izaiah to the pediatric dentist. The pediatric dentist was amazing. There was a room

There was a room set up for us in the back to not disturb other patients. They must have known he can be a screamer. This gave us have privacy while being treated, which for this kid – is essential.

Izaiah went thru x-rays to find that his teeth actually were still in his mouth. The white spots that I thought were broken teeth are actually his baby teeth just knocked back into his gums. His gums were just EXTREMELY swollen as well due to the injury.

Boy Injury

Izaiah’s baby teeth were knocked into his gums. They are still there, and what I was seeing when I thought his teeth were knocked out were his teeth. CREEPY. CRAZY. PAINFUL. Yes. Yes and more YES. KNOCKED into his gums is the last thing I could ever imagine.

So if you are the praying type, please say a little prayer for Izaiah.

The dentist explained that the teeth should re-emerge when they want to. He is on antibiotics to help prevent infection. Poor buddy is dealing with this better than I thought but is not liking having to be on a “soft” diet for a week. (He learned the hard way when he snuck a Frito why he shouldn’t eat chips!!)

My poor little boy, with 2 missing front teeth, how my heart hurts for your pain.

6 Angry Birds Christmas Lights Show

6 Angry Birds Christmas Lights Show

Angry Birds Christmas Lights – because even Christmas now involves Angry Birds!

angry birds light shows

When I was first sent a link to an Angry Birds Christmas light show, I thought – WOW, that’s funny. Then after some research and a few more links being sent my way – I quickly discovered, this wasn’t just a 1 off! Talk about dedicated fans! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by anything Angry Birds that appears. If people are getting Angry Birds Tattoos – and painting Angry Bird nail art – surely they would spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and hours upon hours of time putting up a Christmas light display dedicated to Angry Birds!

6 Fabulous Angry Birds Christmas Light Shows

Round Rock, TX is representing 3 of my favorite things! Angry Birds, Christmas and Pomplamoose!


This light display is an animated Christmas light show playing Angry Birds Level 1 in Irmo, South Carolina.

Help! The pigs are trying to ruin Christmas. Grab the slingshot and fire those birds! From the people who brought you the Guitar Hero Christmas Light game! Running on two computers and 10 Light-o-rama 16 channel controllers uses more than 20,000 lights and less than one cent of electricity per game. Audio is broadcast on 99.1FM, and the controller has a long enough cord for people to play in their cars on the street. Easier than the iPhone version, and bigger too.

Angry Birds Christmas light display @ the Morokia 1st annual tree lighting ceremony. The display was awesome and the family gathered donations (new unwrapped toys) and had hot chocolate and they had the Ice Topia ice cream truck with chocolate frozen banana’s.

Angry birds theme house in Santa Clarita. we were driving by and saw this awesome Christmas light show. Also, we were able to tune in to 99.1 on our FM radio and hear all the sound!
