Mean mommy missed my teeth! I am Captian underpants!

Well we just found out that Annika has to go under for teeth repair. I figured she had been teething because her appetite went down this last week and she has verbally been complaining about her teeth. Well I look in her mouth today after she fought with me when I was trying to brush her teeth(which she never does because she loves the toothpaste) I open up her mouth to see what teeth were coming in and giving her such a hard time and bam! Right there in front of me is a broken tooth, the fourth one from the front to the left. A huge chip off of it, almost 1/4 of the tooth, you can see root. No wonder the poor little thing has been complaining. I feel like a bad mom, I just assumed it was teeth coming in, not roots exposed.
Well we took her to the pediatric dentist ASAP. He took one look and saw that tooth, plus another crack in one tooth on the opposite side. He also stated the lowers looked week and might need caps.
So we are scheduled for Wednesday (time unknown as of yet) for dental surgery, which she will be knocked out for.
Poor little thing. Thank God for booby juice, she sure has been nursing alot lately.
The good thing is she is still full of energy. She loves putting on clothes from the laundry basket (as I am folding them) This day it was Parker's underpants.
