So the boys had their semi-annual dentist appointment yesterday and we got some bad news. No cavities, but Miles has to have his left front tooth pulled a week from today. Because he's a thumb-sucker his front teeth protrude a bit. Pretty much from the moment Miles got his left front tooth he has bumped or knocked it once a week or more. Seriously, every time he trips I look down and his tooth is bleeding. So we've known for awhile that it was pretty much dead and had started to discolor a little bit. Well, the thing has developed into an abscess and now the tooth has gotta go. I'm not looking forward to the process. Anyone who has had a couple shots of Novocaine knows it's not fun and I don't think Miles is going to take it very well. I made Chase take a half day off so he can be there with us because there's no way I could do it by myself! I just feel so bad for the poor kid!
