I think the constant presence of my camera has made my kids photo hogs. Yesterday, out of the blue, Dane begged:
“Mom! You need to take a picture of my new teeth for your newsletter!”
Who am I to argue? He is so proud of his new grown-up teeth. He is brushing better than ever, and loves to show them off to everyone.
So far his new teeth are doing well. The bottom one was coming in a little crooked & he kept trying to push it into place with his tongue. He was succeeding, but he was also succeeding in making a permanent tooth loose!
Thankfully the dentist caught that. She also caught that Dane’s baby molar is cracking (My Sugar Hound). Today, probably as you are reading your newsletter with a delicious, warm, cup of coffee, Dane is getting his crown on. His silver crown. The crown that does not match the rest of his teeth.
Please cross your fingers & toes with me that after today he will still happily pose for the camera and smile wide & big. Silver crown included. I so love his smile.
