Prayers for Boys

I prayed diligently and with all my heart for God to bless me with boys...
NOW, I pray diligently and with all my heart BECAUSE I have boys!

This picture was taken about three weeks ago while on the phone with my Mom following K-man bumping into Little Bit (ohhh, the heartache!).
The Story: I had a friend and her children visiting from Houston. I think they had been at my house maybe two hours when the collision occurred between K-man and Little Bit on the bunk bed. K-man cried/screamed (you know the way that makes you heart drop!) I found K-man with his two front teeth bleeding and I couldn't get them to stop AND they were loose (Reminder he is only 5...). We ended up, after a 45 minute drive, at a dentist office where they casually let me know that he would need to have both teeth"wiggled" out because the gums would eventually reject them. They had both been broken under the gums at the root level. Yes, it would only take the "just right hit" to cause that to happen!
Hmmmmm....doesn't this bring back memories .
Well, following three weeks of mush to eat, a wild crazy mom trying to keep the teeth from being hit and injured worse, and one week of school (bribing K-man to say OFF the merry-go-round!) We were off to the dentist.

We have been prepping K-man about the laughing gas, the "wiggling" of the teeth out , and the tooth fairy... AND I have been praying!!!
I have gone through the teary emotions of my baby going to Kinder and my baby loosing his "baby look" and the anxiety of the discomfort for K-man.
God is good and answers prayers.

K-man was a "tough man" today and did great! He even said it didn't hurt! Only one tooth was taken following another X-ray (which K-man thought was cool!).
The Dr. was wonderful with K-man and with me (heehee). The tooth at the root was crushed so, there was some digging that had to be done to get all the pieces out- (K-man will be sore).
I told K-man that I prayed through the whole procedure. He just gave me a hug and said, "I know." Oh, my sweet baby boy!

He may look a bit older, but he is still my little boy.
An ice cream and transformer later he was a happy boy!

Little Bit got in on the celebration too!

Did I mention I have TWO boys!?!
