A Little Late for Halloween

Alden was a vampire for Halloween this year. But it wasn't until tonight that he completed his fang look. This is what his mouth has been looking like lately:

Minus the pizza sauce, of course, that's only there a couple times a week. One of his front teeth has been moving more & more towards center, but not getting much looser over the past couple months. Obviously the permanent tooth was coming in and I was debating going to the dentist to get it pulled. But after getting knocked in the mouth at basketball on Saturday, the tooth bled a bit & then turned black the next day. Out it goes. Too bad we had family pictures in the meantime. And too bad he smiles such a huge smile, showing off his crazy teeth. Oh well.

But at FHE tonight, my mom came prepared (she's a hygienist). She brought numbing gel & used the kitchen table. Here's the process:

A few minutes later & we have this:

All he wants for Christmas is his two front teeth! He won't be this way for long though, you can already see the permanent tooth pushing through. Thanks, Maam!

good thing you have a great hygienist in the family! Can't wait to see him in person. What a brave little boy
