My wierd kids

Leave it to my family to have wierd stuff happen. About a month ago, Mustafa, oldest, showed my that for some odd reason, when his six year molars came in the gums did not separate as usual but came off the teeth as a flap which remained attached by a few millimeters. So, he basically had two flaps of gum hangs down next to his upper molars. A few days ago, I was brushing Safiya's teeth and found that her two lower front permenant teeth were coming up BEHIND her baby teeth! Needless to say, she had to go and have her baby teeth pulled. Because the dentist was worried about crowding, he pulled all four front baby teeth. She's now ahead of Mustafa for losing baby teeth and she did remarkably well considering she is an absolute sissy when it comes to pain.

LOL - bet the tooth fairy was running short of change after that night :-) Poor kid - not a nice thing to happen.
