In the Biasotti household teeth have become an ongoing issue of importance. One kid is losing them and looking like a vampire/jack-o-lantern and the other just got his braces. The reality that the camera I really want and covet is wired into my oldest’s mouth right now really depresses me. Why didn’t he get the teeth from my side of the family? Why did he have a small cramped mouth and jacked up jaw? Do I sound bitter? I don’t mean to be. We just can blame the genetics on his old man. I am hoping my youngest takes after my side of the family as he seems to have lots of gaps and spaces between those teeth prior to losing them yet those 5 years of sucking his thumb probably caused our family orthodontist some sick thrill that he’s going to have two patients in his chair from the family.
I like the orthodontist actually. He’s a very nice guy that actually did quite a bit of visits and watching my older son’s mouth change before he dropped the bomb on me that I wasn’t picking up my new camera any time in the new future. Sure there are credit cards you tell me, but what do you think I did to pay the down payment on K’s braces? Just when I get them paid off it will be time to pay for college–watch.
Sigh….all for a good cause…
I guess you are just a dream.
Now D is very excited about all the new teeth he is losing. So far he has 6 out in the last few months. What’s funny is that the two front ones don’t have any new ones budding through yet so he continues to look like a vampire when he smiles at us. If they aren’t in by Halloween we have a costume already waiting for him. Hey, I have to save $$$$ now that son #1 has some “ortho bling” going on. What color did he choose for his braces? Oakland A’s green of course.
The one thing I don’t like about my iphone is the bad camera. Don’t let these images influence your decision to hire me, OK?
And now: That camera looks great in your mouth.
