Today is the first day of my very favorite month!!!
I love October! I got married in October!!
Well, it looks like we’re going to have to start buying floss by the foot.
Today was Tyler’s turn at the dentist and guess what….the doc says he needs to floss. I’m thinking that every night after dinner we should all sit around as a family (dogs included) and floss our teeth. What do you think? I think it would be a fine family activity.
I text messaged Tyler after his appointment, to see how it went. I was just waiting for his response to be “They said my teeth looked better than yours”, just like his dad did. I was fully prepared to smack them both through the phone. Luckily his reply did not have anything to do with the dentist’s report of how bad my teeth were.
He told me they found a few cavities and that he needs to floss more. Then he went on to tell me something about sleeping with his mouth open. I wasn’t really making the connection between gum health and sleeping with his mouth open, but he definitely has a few cavities and needs to floss. (like me)
Tonight when we were all together, I asked if they showed him pictures of his teeth. My mister chimed in…”Why would they show pictures of good teeth, they only show you pictures of your rotten teeth.” Oh the support! I can hardly stand it!
Do you remember me telling you that I actually scared someone into flossing because of my story of decaying teeth? Well today she actually made an appointment with MY fabulous new dentist! I’m tellin’ ya, I need to start charging a commission! My rotten teeth are sure drumming up a lot of business for my dental dude.
