Jamie lost another tooth yesterday - and it wasn't the one I knew was loose. THAT one still hasn't fallen out yet, but I'm sure it will soon. So, that will make three teeth lost in less than two weeks. At $1.00 a tooth (inflation, you know), when you factor in the fact that his pre-molars are popping out like crazy, it's getting expensive. Also, when you consider that once all the baby teeth are gone I have to take him to the orthodontist for braces...well, you can see why I'm not really looking forward to all his baby teeth coming out!
In a related note, Jamie had a dentist appointment on Tuesday. No cavities (yay!) and everything looks good, except for the fact that his x-rays show most of his adult teeth will probably come in crooked (a fact confirmed by the orthodontist five months ago). Jamie's dentist said she was surprised his pre-molars are already falling out - he's about two years ahead of schedule on that. (Yes, his dentist is a "she". Make something of it, Mr. Anonymous, and see what you get!) I told her it isn't surprising at all when you consider he was born with a tooth already growing in!
As for an update on school, I have one last assignment due tomorrow, which I plan on wrapping up tonight, then I get to study for my final exams. My first final exam is on Tuesday, May 1 for sociology, then Saturday, May 5 for math (ugh!), and my last final exam is on Monday, May 7 for geology. My government class is based entirely on assignments; there is no final exam for that class. Then, hallelujah!, I get a blissful month (almost) off before summer session starts. Hooray!
