Kazakhstan Tooth Nabber!!

Now for your Gross Out Pictures of the Day!!!
 
Didn't you always want to look inside our son's mouths???? HAHAHA!!!
 
It has been so funny...we have been here a mere 2 months and all three boys have lost teeth here!  First there was Joshie with his second front tooth right before Christmas, then Kenny lost a tooth a few days ago...then Matthew today!  He totally cracked us when he casually said as he looked at the tooth held in the palm of his hand "Well Mr, Tooth, you were born in Kazakhstan, and you died in Kazakhstan...rest in peace!"...HAHAHA!!
 
Matthew has something weird going on, if you look at his picture it appears there is a whole separate tooth coming in on the outside of the jaw in addition to the regular tooth.  It isn't hurting him, but guess who gets to go to the dentist with the girls when we get home??  Sure wish we had dental insurance...not available to us and we have several mouthfuls of teeth that are in obvious need or braces plus Olesya has a pretty badly chipped permanent front tooth we need to deal with.  Why does it have to hurt US so badly when THEY are the ones getting the dental work?
 
Dominick...I tried to tell you years ago...DENTAL SCHOOL...not CAR WASHING!!! :-)

Can't we send a link to your blog to all the dentists in Montrose and hope that one will take your family under his/her wings?

If it is any consolation - most dental insurance pays only a very small amount towards braces. For example my cadillac dental insurance has a $1,500 lifetime limit for orthodontists - and then the benefits are paid out quarterly over 2 years. See? You really aren't missing out on much as far as dental insurance is concerned : )

My newly adopted 3 yr old had two badly chipped front teeth that I thought I didn't need to worry about, because they were baby teeth and didn't seem to be bothering her. Surprise! They were damaged down to the roots, and both abcessed and had to be pulled. So do make sure you get your daughter's chipped tooth checked right away. And dental insurance unfortunately doesn't cover much at all. $300 to get those little teeth pulled. Luckily the trip to the emergency room when her whole face blew up was covered by insurance, and so were the antibiotics :)

Hello, Adulthood...But Not Goodbye, Childhood

During these waning days of summer, new adults are slowly blossoming and, for one, childhood is very gradually beginning its tentative wave...
