Ashlyn lost a tini tooth right next to a big front tooth.
I love a toothless grin!
Ashlyn practices being a dentist to her stuffed kitty...later in the day I visit the real dentist and came home with a sore mouth, two fillings, and a shiny new tooth!
Today, I got a pretty new porcelain tooth. It was quite an event. My mouth was open for two hours while drilling, grinding, sanding, smoothing, and shaping were all occuring in a very small place at the back of my mouth. The anesthesia didn't work right, and I ended up with uncomfortable shaking, a racing heart, and squirming until the poor dentist said it was inevitable that I would need more medicine. Afterwards I had to run some errands which I should have postponed... droppy lips are quite a sight!
Ashlyn on the other hand lost her pearly white the easy way...while eating popcorn! Fortunately this one didn't get swallowed like some did a few months ago! She can't wait to see what the Tooth Fairy will bring tonight! I miss those days of easy dentistry. I wish the Tooth Fairy would visit me too and grant me a nice healthy mouth!
Speaking of mouths, mine loves sweets, which probably contributed to the problem above! Our "Favorite Candy" poll closed yesterday, and we sure enjoyed seeing all the favorites! My apologies to the Snicker lovers. (I can't believe I forgot that one!) Of the candies listed, M&M's came in first place for most beloved candy, and Butterfinger and Mounds tied for second! I love those three candies, but actually, I really love everything on the list. Just don't tell my dentist! :-)
