When Sam was three he had his first set of dental x-rays taken and we found out that he had an extra tooth. I immediately blamed it on my husband’s genes but later learned, that the freak, extra tooth gene actually came from my mom. Apparently, she had an entire extra set of teeth when she was a child. Like a shark. Today my little man had that extra tooth removed.
He had to be put under and I was a nervous wreck. He handled it like a champ though and I’m proud of him. I’m also thankful that I live in a place where very competent and skilled people are close by to take amazing care of my children.
