The tooth

Some weeks ago, Jonah complained that the roof of his mouth felt weird. I looked but could not see anything peculiar. He quit complaining after I didn't see anything out of place the few more times. 2 nights ago, my hubby was playing with him, tickling him which made him throw his head back and laugh out loud. And that's when hubby saw the weirdest thing. A tooth is growing out from the roof of Jonah's mouth!

He has gone to see the dental nurse in school today and she gave him a letter to have an x-ray taken before deciding how best to remove it. Appoinment for x-ray is in a month time. I asked the boys if they have ever seen an actual Alaskan Bull worm before showing them this pix! It's our private joke. But if you have watched Sponge Bob Square Pants episode: The worm, then you'll know what I mean....LOL!

Have you come across anything like that before?

Hmmm... that's really odd, and I've never seen that before! I bet he's happily showing it off to his friends?

No, never seen anything like that before. The dentist removed 4 teeth from my mouth and I lived with braces my entire adolescence.

Oh my gosh! I've never seen or heard anyting like this. Hopefully it's not painful to him... and that it can be removed safely.

By the way, thanks for visiting my blog. :)
