Painful Bites (for mother & son)

This morning Matthew complained about his bottom tooth while eating breakfast. So I, the dental assistant I used to be, came over to check out the problem: A LOOSE TOOTH!!!

The reality of my little boy growing up hits me like a blow to the head. I then explained that a permanent tooth will replace that tooth. That he will have to care for it the rest of his life.

“You will get an adult tooth when that one falls out.”

ADULT TOOTH! Did I actually say that? Yes, I did.
