Flattered

To get our official orders to move to Texas, there are about 1,000 hoops we have to jump through.  OK, maybe only a dozen (big ones), but it's still a pain.

Today I jumped through my "dental clearance" hoop.  They cleared me for moving!  I was also mistaken for at least 5 years younger.  Unfortunately, NOT because I look so youthful.  The dentist confidently estimated me younger than 25 when he observed that one of my wisdom teeth is crowning.

When I thanked him for the compliment, he explained that most people get their wisdom teeth between 18-25.  Oh well.  He encouraged me to get in touch with a dentist in Texas to talk about getting em' out. 

Joy.



At Kai's dental clearance check-up yesterday we finally figured out why his 2 front bottom teeth are such different sizes: before breaking through, his right one had fused with the next tooth, appearing as one big tooth.  For some reason it never occurred to me to just count his teeth.  I would have come up with an odd number. 

They said it's uncommon, but should not indicate future dental anomalies.  Still, this IS Kai we're talking about...

oh that is called "gemination" you don't see that too often, at least it is the bottom teeth :)

But this doesn't have to mean, that this happens to the next teeth, too! They could grow totally normal...at least I heard so...
