In Sulu, the heirs of the sultan and their followers refused to leave Sabah despite a stern warning from President Aquino. In Seoul, a media stated that the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un oversaw a live-fire artillery drill aimed at simulating an “actual war.” In Sidney, a powerful cyclone is said to hit their country and an immediate evacuation is being called for. In Pasig City, a 22 month toddler’s front milk teeth cracked due to a fall!
Aigoo! The world has bigger problems to face, and yet here I am, my world has momentarily stopped because of the crack on my baby’s teeth.
I’m really not the OA type, but please allow me to over react and fuss over my baby’s pearly white teeth. She’s turning two years old, when will she have another set of new teeth? 5 years old? 6 years old? That’s pretty a long time. She fell down earlier this morning, face on the floor, as she was running around our house.
Yes, she cried and was comforted by her dad. But just as I was going to brush her teeth after her bath time, I discovered the crack on her teeth, and oh boy, horror and anguish instantly surged all over me. Those teeth that I’m taking good care of just cracked!
Yesha loves to grin, showing off her full front teeth. She grins at the sales ladies when on a department store, she grins at the waiter when on a restaurant, she grins at a mass attendee when on a church. She just loves to grin.
She’d had her complete set of teeth when she was a little more than a year old. And I can say her teeth is one of her assets. I love it when she smiles broadly, her almost perfect teeth add to her cuteness. But now that her front teeth have crack, I think her smile will never be the same again (OA mode).
Hubby told me to be grateful that she didn’t hit her head. He’s the optimistic one. But I’m hard headed. I’ll to fix her teeth. We’re gonna visit a pediatric dentist. I think there’s something that can be done to her front teeth. I presume I can have the cracked edges trimmed to level out her two front teeth. I really hope it can be fixed. Haays… If it doesn’t work, then I have to learn to enjoy her new teeth.
