when i took the kiddos to the dentist a few weeks ago for their 6 mos. appt., we found out that mikey had to have a few teeth pulled.
i about cried. my poor baby got my farked up mouth of teeth.
when i was his age, i had six teeth pulled at the same time. one of those teeth (the front one) never came down b/c it was in my gums sideways instead of straight up and down. so when i was about in the fourth grade, i had braces placed on my teeth. i then had oral surgery to have a bracket placed on the tooth still in the gum and a chain (just like a necklace chain) was connected to the bracket on the tooth and the wire on my braces. everytime i went to the orthodonist, then snipped the chain, grabbed the pliers, and got to town yankin' on that damn tooth to get it to turn around and come down straight.
to this day, i still get teary-eyed and white knuckled when i go to the dentist.
mikey didn't seem to scared or worried. he was more worried about how much the tooth fairy is going to leave him.
he was back for a few minutes and then popped out full of gauze and with his three teeth (two of the teeth were like fused together). i about threw up when i saw the teeth. i can't believe how long they were.
so mikey has spent his day playing on the computer all day and eating icecream for meals. he's already to go to bed and wake in the morning to check out his loot.
check out the new grin.
and the nasty teeth...ewwww!
