I know I’ve only lived with the boy for 2 and a half years and with his present array of teeth for over a year, but it wasn’t until I uploaded this photo that I realised that there was something not quite right about his grin.
It appears that he’s missing a tooth. One of the secondary incisors along the top. It just never came in at all. As an American he’s got to keep those teeth just right, as a Brit…well, I suppose it wouldn’t be right for me to point out some unsavory cultural stereotypes – especially not in my own son.
