A trip to the dentist

Jamey has a habit of falling on his face. A couple weeks ago, he fell off the couch (while he was lying down), he smashed his face into the floor running, and then tripped and hit the floor again. Three times in three days. One of the times he knocked his right front tooth loose. I gave it a week to tighten up, but he still won't take bits on it and cries "ouch" all the time. So we went to the dentist yesterday.

Jamey screamed the whole time but the dentist and the nurses were very nice and caring. Turns out he has an extra tooth. And the tooth that is loose has no root so it's going to fall out "long before he's six." He still seems like he's in pain, so he's eating mostly soft food--oatmeal, Mac & cheese, yogurt, and applesauce. We'll go back in a month to get it rechecked.
