Beef of the Week

Ever since Rt got his first tooth at 8 months, we have called his teeth, toofies. I have no idea why, it just sounded cute, I guess. He calls them toofies as well, so I guess it will be the going phrase from here on out.

Today's Topic: Toofies

Yesterday, I went back to the dentist to get 2, yes I said 2, temporary crowns. WTF? I am in my earlyish 30's and have fakies? What next? A rod for a hip? Why,why,why??
Ok, I am over it, but come on, where is the love? I do appreciate I was given straight teeth, but these deep grooves have been a pain in my side for most of my life. When I was young, during my competitive gymnastics days, I could eat anything I wanted, and believe me, I did. After school, before practice, we would hit the 7-11 in carpool and I used all the spare change I had to buy JUNK. I can't recall all the crap I bought, but the "buy two, get one twinkie free" come to mind along with Bonkers, Mambas, and Now 'n Laters. So, obviously I acquired a few cavities. Due to the deep grooves in my teeth, the cavities were deep and wide. So, fast forward to my 20/30's, these last couple silver filings are in dire need of an upgrade. The major flippin problem is, these silver fillings cracked over the years and made way for more cavity to seep down into my tooth. And the result is: CROWN my ass will ya? So, here we are now, or here I am now, in pain due to the harassment my mouth took over a course of 2 hours yesterday. I thought it was a good thing to use the rubber mouth guard to keep my mouth propped open, but I have never been this sore due to a trip to the dentist. PLUS, I don't think these temps are sitting right. I think I can feel them first when I bite down. Oh lovely, another trip to the freakin dentist. Ya, ya, not a big deal, but when you have a little one, you have to make last minute plans to have someone watch them. Luckily, one of my mommy friend's is already watching another kid, so adding Rt to the mix wasn't a huge burden. Hopefully, it won't take too long so I can make it back and help her with the herd of 2 yr olds.

Oops. Forgot to mention yesterday that Rt is now 23 months old!
One more to go till he turns the big 2!!! I can't believe it. :)

1) I think EVERY parent calls them "toofies."

2) Re: being "old" Last week at basketball, somebody suggested the old guys against the young guys. No one even SUGGESTED I should play with the young guys. Rotten kids!

Uh, yeah...I had a crown put on three years ago AND I have a freakin' bunion on my toe. Oh, and I have to all-over color my hair every 6 weeks to hide the gray.
Damned early 30's....
