At that consultation, the orthodontist x-rayed his jaw and showed us the results. It looked like something from the movie Alien with multiple rows of incisors. His milk teeth seem to be too solid to make way easily for their adult versions.
And so it came to pass that he has had five teeth extracted and is sitting in the office for the morning as the injections wear off, though I will be packing him off back to school for the afternoon.
His appointment with the dentist was at 8am this morning. I am an evil parent.
