Not very sweet dreams

Why is it that we think our own kids are so cute and the most adorable kids that we have ever seen? This has recently happened to me. I have always thought my kids were super cute, but for some reason, Kelsey's toothless smile is so darling!
My entire adult life I have truly disliked kids when they lose their two front teeth. I think they are NOT cute, very far from it! I always felt sorry for my two sister in laws who teach elementary school and have to look at kids all day every day that are missing their two front teeth. I have been dreading the day that Kelsey had two front teeth missing since she started loosing teeth a year ago, knowing that she would become a child vampire, but, not now. She is so cute! And not only that, all the kids her age are suddenly cute with missing teeth, not repulsing!


Although I have to admit there is one horrible side effect to Kelsey's very cute vampire look. I have been having DREAMS! Dreams about people in my life, mostly from my past, that have Kelsey's teeth. When they saunter into my dream, they look like their normal selves, but then they start talking to me in my dream and they are missing their 2 front teeth! It is getting a little creepy. It has happened about 4 times in the past few weeks. What does this mean? I have finally come to the conclusion that first graders are cute with no teeth, but adult people I know? Yuck! I guess I hope those vampire teeth fill in soon, but for Halloween it is so CUTE!

I always thought that the little kids looked cute without their two front teeth. Kelsey looks super cute. I have to wonder if your dreams stem from Kelsey loosing her teeth and you reading the "Twilight" series. I know I had a lot of dreams about vampires when I read those books. Hopefully they will go away soon!

You are right, Kelsey is adorable but other kids YUCK! I am not looking forward to Jacob losing his front teeth. Teeth freak me out!

I agree I hate the toothless smile--but again, I think Taylors is cute. The thing that also bothers me is when they have a couple of big teeth that have came in mixed with their baby teeth. Just looks so weird!
Taylor is being a witch for Halloween--partially due to the missing few teeth.

Have I been in your dreams? When you are an adult missing teeth you either forgot to brush your teeth too many times, or smoked too much crack! That's my opinion anyway...

So... is she going to be a vampire for halloween??
She is pretty dang cute! Me, personally, I LOVE the no front teeth look, but the adult part...yeah, I agree, YUCKY!!
Let's do this...at the next QG meeting, let's pretend that the person standing up front has no front teeth...who knows, it might end up being pretty entertaining!!!

I love the toothless grin, in little kids. In adults it would remind me of some scarier mission days in the south.

I think Krista might be right about the "Twilight"
