daaaaaaaaag, yo

I missed my 100th post celebration. :( Oh well.

Anywho, on to more important things.

The little guy's dentist said that he not only broke the teeth, but he pushed them up and back a bit in the fall. He also broke his frenulum labii superiosis, which is fancy schmancy terms for the connecty thingie that connects your top lip to your gums. His was overgrown as it was and had grown between his front teeth, causing them to have a space, so breaking it wasn't that big of a deal. One less thing to worry with right now, in fact. As far as his teeth are concerned, the dentist said they would most likely move back down on their own, but he really didn't know if the teeth would live or not. He said we would just wait it out, and he'd keep an eye on them for a few months. After a few months, if they're still there, he will cap them. If they fall out, he'll just be the toothless wonder for a few years til big-boy teeth grow in. So there ya have it.

So far, his mouth looks SO much better than it did, though. The swelling has gone down significantly. His teeth are still white at this point, so there's hope that they won't die, but we just don't know yet. His gums are still very bruised right now, so we're watching them and cleaning them with peroxide (dentist's orders).

In other news, my kiddos at school are taking their state tests this week. So far they've finished the reading tests. Today, my "gifted" student kept falling asleep during the test! The only way I could convince her to stay awake was to threaten to close her test booklet and let her fail the test and repeat 3rd grade next year. What's up with such strong-willed, defiant kids?!

That's all I gots.... slow news day, I guess.

I used to fall asleep in Spanish. After I'd done my work, though. My Spanish teacher was a funny little Colombian lady. She got a water squeezer ring out of a cereal box and one day she came up and said, (remember to add accent) "Ooh, Catalina, look what I got in Colombia" and squirted me right in the face. She used it (with permission from my mom- traitor-)when I'd fall asleep. Not cool. Those were good naps.
