This is a post about something that has bugged us and bothered this family for the past 6 years....
Jameson's ugly front tooth....
Jameson fell when he was a baby, and hit his mouth on the television and knocked it loose. The dentist told us that it would probably stay put, but it would get UGLY...
and BOY did it ever get ugly!
When Jameson started loosing his baby teeth, we just assumed that "Ol' Brownie" would be the first to go...
He's lost EVERY STINKIN' front and side tooth, top and bottom, except for that one.
The dentist kept telling us it would come out when it was ready, but it never did.
Finally, the "grown-up" tooth started coming in behind Ol' Brownie, and the dentist said that it had to go.
They sent us home with instructions to "work on the tooth", but if we couldn't get it out, they would pull it.
We worked and pulled and twisted and yanked....
IT WASN'T COMING OUT!
We messed with it for 6 straight hours one day and only managed to get one side of the root out and irritate the gum so bad that it hurt Jameson to even brush his teeth.
It was horrible!
I even told Jameson that if he would just go ahead and yank it out, I would give him $50.00 to spend however he pleased.
I hated that tooth THAT BAD!
Oh, and he couldn't do it. It hurt him too much.
SO, after 6 long years with that awful piece of brown enamel looking at us, $79.00, and all of 5 minutes in the dentist's chair, Ol' Brownie is NO MORE!
(And of course, my ADD has been kicking my bootie for the past couple of weeks and I haven't pulled it together enough to get a picture of Jameson without the tooth! GRRRRR!)
Anybody know where I can get a tooth bronzed? I'm thinking about wearing it on a necklace!
