The whole tooth and nothing but the tooth!

ToothacheYahoooooo, it’s finally here, my turn to host the most fabulous blog carnival on the internet, the BritMums Carnival! It’s been such a long wait to host as the carnival is so so popular, but now it’s all mine….alllll mine…..bwahhh haaa haaa *laughs evilly*, and it really is my pleasure!

I haven’t gone for a theme for this fortnights carnival instalment, but if I had to it would have without a doubt been something to do with teeth! Teeth seem to have taken over my life recently, and I mean it when I say I’ve had it to the back teeth with teeth!

When chatting to a good friend recently about all these toothy problems that I’ve had around me she said that teeth are probably the one thing that start off hurting you, hurt you as you get older and then continue to drive you crazy in your later years, and that’s never been more obvious to me then right now. My husband has a terrible toothache, so is moping about the house every night counting down the seconds until his emergency appointment arrives, and my little girl, who was 1 a few weeks ago, is doing her best to pop up a second tooth, but it’s not showing it’s face without a fight….a fight that lasts for hours, all through the night!! I almost want to yank out the one that’s giving the other half gyp and give it to my little one to save her the trouble…but that’s not going to work is it?

And without further ado, let’s crack on with the carnival. I’ve had some wonderful entries submitted so please do take time to have a read, and a good old nose about all the fabulous featured blogs.
