Open wide!

I hate to brag, but my son is the best patient.

He had his very first dental appointment today. They did x-rays, which was only mildly annoying to him what with the plastic crap in his mouth and all, I think it is understandable. They put a camera in his mouth and we all got a kick out of that. He was giggling and giggling when the lady cleaned his teeth with her magic toothbrush, and giggled some more when they put water in his mouth and used the vacuumer to suck it out. She even let him use the vacuum all by himself. See:

Bad news? Two cavities, both on the lower teeth, both on teeth that will not be falling out any time soon, both call for their own appointment. Two separate torture appointments for the poor little man.

Good news? He has another loose tooth (on the bottom, next to the one that is already gone). And the two front top teeth are coming in within the next year (we saw those huge suckers on the x-ray), so those two will be falling out soon, too. This is good because tooth loss + tooth fairy = MONEY!!!!

And money makes Cal a happy boy!!!!!
