What I'm doing this morning...[updated]

We're going to the dentist! Woo hoo! They got us in first thing. They do that when you are irresponsible and forget that your kid bit through his mouth guard and he is too "prideful" (his word) to remind you ... and stupid enough to kick box without one.

Isn't this a lovely smile?

[Update] After photo
His mouth was numb and he couldn't pull his lip up, but you can see it is fixed.

There may or may not be a crown later.


  1. Apparently your college bookstore will be the only thing biting for a while.

  2. I don't know cloudmaster. Last night he couldn't stand to open his mouth to eat, even though he normally puts away about 1000 calories after classes. This morning I took him to IHOP with his new tooth. He ate a huge omlet and three pancakes.

    No biting into apples for a while though. And he doesn't think he wants to chew anything hard with his back teeth either because his jaw is so sore.

  3. LOL that's hilarious. Sad, but still hilarious.

    I love it when their mouths are all numb- you feed them messy foods, wait for it to drip and drool and since they can't feel it, take blackmail pictures for later.

    Ahhhh, the joys of parenting!

  4. Aw, poor kid. One of my kids all four of her front teeth - upper and lower - when she was seven. Not a fun thing to have happen.

  5. Ack! Kids...sigh.
