The tooth fairy comes calling

April 9, 2015

Yes ! finally the tooth fairy visited Cuddles and took away his two lower teeth. Well, it wasn’t as simple as that. For almost a year Cuddles was watching his classmates and friends’s toothless grins. He often asked, “Aaaa (that’s his oft repeated first word) when am I going to lose my teeth.” As he had late teething we were not really worried. In grade one I think he was the only one whose milk teeth were all intact. At my dentist appointment last month I casually mentioned this and so, the dentist checked his teeth. She notice a swelling at his lower teeth and said, soon, very soon. But… er nothing happened, until last week his dad noticed that his permanent teeth had already sprouted behind his milk teeth, which stood staunchly strong. Off we went to the dentist, who tried at first a gel to take out the milk teeth, but soon realised that an injection was inescapable.

Cuddles was not really putting up a brave front, so were politely told to wait outside while she administered the injection. In barely five minutes it was all over and we were presented the teeth in a tissue. teeth

Now the big challenge is for him to keep pushing his permanent teeth with his tongue so that they come to the right position. The tooth fairy gifted him a Cogo building model (a cheaper Lego version). Here is what he made it into.
