My Three Front Teeth

Pin It Now! Lydia has an extra tooth up top.
All she wants for Christmas is her three front teeth.
The extra tooth looks like a shark tooth.
When the dentist showed me the x-ray I started laughing hysterically (not in front of Lydia).
I laughed so hard I cried. I just envisioned her in her kindergarten pictures with this shark tooth rocking her smile and I could not stop laughing. I guess I'm no pageant mom.
I showed Lydia the x-ray and asked her to name the extra tooth.
"Sharky." Of course.

Last week she had to get one of her baby teeth pulled to make way for Sharky. When Sharky is halfway in, he will have to get pulled as well.
Do you or your kids have any funky teeth issues?

Here you have it in pictures . . .

Aren't kids so cute when they sleep? Or maybe not. Maybe creepy.

Pin It Now!

I did a little chuckle when I took my son to a new dentist last year. I waited as I watched the hygienist count. Stop. And recount. Then looked at me. "I'm pretty sure he has an extra tooth on the bottom." She laughed and said, "Yes, he does!" The dentist said it was nice, because it will give him extra room for when his permanent teeth are coming in. And he'll enjoy the extra buck from the tooth fairy. ;)

Oh my word, you make me laugh. I love how you approach everything in life with humor. I love that Lydia named her extra tooth "sharky" too. I actually laughed out loud when I saw the sleeping funny. My daughter just turned 2 so we haven't been to the dentist yet. We'll see how that goes when the time comes. Lydia looked in pretty good spirits about the whole thing, good for her!

when my oldest son lost his 2 bottom teeth, the permament teeth were fully grown before the baby teeth came out.

Ah! I had a front tooth just like that too!! So strange! Had it replaced in 10th grade... Now I have a $$$ looking fake ( but I kind of miss my original.) Very "Twilight" haha :)
