Toofer Update

15 Aug

This may have been his only smile on Sunday, but at least it was a good one.

These incoming teeth are giving him a run for his money.  We are still waiting for all four canines to break through, and the wait hasn’t been pleasant.  Now that he is talking more, he will lay on the ground and cry “hurt!” with his fingers jammed in his mouth.

It is wrecking havoc on his sleep, his eating and, most dramatically, his personality.  Which in turn is directly impacting our sleep, eating and personality.
I’m considering going back to dentistry school, as I’m quite sure that these beacons of hell teeth will not be through by the time I graduate, and I can then perform the first ever toddler canine extraction.

    Canines are absolutely horrible. They were the worst…until the two year molars. And yes, they turn nice boys into devils and you wonder if your child is just horrible now until the tooth breaks through and the nice boy slowly emerges once again.
