Portrait of the Teenager

Portrait of the Teenager

May 14, 2012


Once the good drugs kick in, the teenager continues texting as if his teeth haven’t been knocked half way down his throat or his lip split open.

On the other hand, I was whimpering in chair next to the bed.

And now for more fun, we are off to the orthodontist hoping the teeth can be saved.

    omg…poor kid…poor mommy…good luck!

    Ewww….OW. I hope the orthodontist was able to save the teeth. I’m a mom of a 14 year old girl and can confirm the teen ability to text through just about any situation.

  4. Erin Christine says:

    Oh. My. God. That poor child…I hope that he is okay!!! Hugs to you!

    What in the world did he do?

  6. CathyC says:

    On a better note, he seems to be taking it very well! Oh, Chris!

  7. CaliforniaGrammy says:

    But wait . . . did I miss something. Whatever happened to your handsome teenager?

  8. Gina G says:

    Once the good drugs kick in on the teen, they need to give the Mom a complimentary dose as well. I think we suffer more than the rugrats when they get hurt.

  9. Navhelowife says:

    Oh NOOO!!! I hope that good news was heard. I’m so sorry, I know it is no fun.

    Kids are amazingly resilient, aren’t they? Here’s hoping that the teeth can be saved.

    How about some details?

  12. Jen says:

    You need to make a flip book with all of your emergency room photos. You’re there like once ever six weeks….. It will be entertaining (note I did not say “fun”) to look back at it later when they are grown. :-)

    Oh no! This is my greatest injury-related fear, I am so sorry! I have often gazed at your many, beautiful, active, risk-loving kids and wondered how they escape injury so well, especially when one of your boys was upside down on a skateboard! Such talent, and yet much for moms to bear when things go wrong. I hope his teeth can be restored and know that I and many mamas are crying with you next to his bed.

    But damn, what a trouper that guy is! xo

  15. Monica says:

    So true & so disturbing! Good luck!

    So sorry. I’ve been through a majorly chipped tooth with my son. It made me totally whimper. Thank goodness for modern dentistry!!!
