toothy, part 3

paul has been complaining of some pain lately, so cam took paul to the dentist again today. his gums are a little red. she did some cleaning and reminded cam to floss paul regularly.

cam feels really guilty about the state of paul's teeth because he's in charge of his oral health (i merely provide insurance). when paul was a baby, i couldn't stand using the finger brush on him because of his iron jaws, so cam took over.

as paul gets ready to go to school fulltime, i feel like all of our parenting flaws are being put on display. the teeth, the clinginess, the whining, the distaste for sharing, etc. etc. etc.... i'm so sorry, baby. we could have done better by you.
