Have I Mentioned

that I have the teeth of a 90 year old homeless man who grew up in a country with no fluoridated water?

I believe that I have bemoaned the horrid state of my teeth at one time or another.

Well it seems that 2/4 of my children are suffering the same fate as me.

Poor Shana.

Poor Jakie.

They are both on cavities Numbers 3 and 4.

Elisha? None. "And I eat a lot of candy, Mommy. And don't always brush my teeth so well"


Poor little chickies. They're both having their 2 cavities filled in a few weeks, and Jakie's having sealant put on 1 of his teeth.

Luckily, my dentist believes in knocking out the little stinkers gently sedating the children so as to avoid any undue trauma drugs em up with nitrous oxide , so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Did I mention that it seems that they both have my teeth?

Oy. Maybe we should just save some time and pull out all their adult teeth and just give them implants. Have I told you guys that I still have a humongo crater in my mouth from where my tooth got filled that can't be filled in until about September? Lovely.

Poor little ones. I feel the need to go wake them up and floss them. (yes, I wrote this post at night and set it to publish on Friday)

Your poor kids. Some how all of my kids got someone else's teeth. I have rotten teeth, my husband has rotten teeth. My kids have never had a cavity. I brush my teeth at least 3 times a day...there is floss around everywhere because I am obsessive about it. Every time we go to the dentist, they get perfect check ups and I get an appointment to fill my next cavity. My husband goes to the dentist and we have to take out a loan to pay for it.
I love my kids...I'm just jealous of their teeth. (and wonder often where they got them?)
