All I Want for Christmas Is Karol's Two Front Teeth...To Fall Out

I am the worst mother in the world, and here's why:
  • I gave my daughter vitamins that stained her teeth brown/purple.
  • I didn't take her to the dentist right away because I assumed it would go away.
  • Turns out the vitamins stained her teeth internally, and it's never coming off.
  • Karol is not much bothered by this. I am. I really am.
  • Vainest. Mommy. Ever.
It's her TWO FRONT TEETH! Goodbye child model career! Goodbye Little Miss pageants! It's OVER. Until they fall out in 1.5 to 2 years, that is.

And the worst part is, I think it looks weird, I can't help but stare at them whenever she smiles, and I'm afraid people will think I just don't teach her good oral hygiene. I mean, I sure would if I saw a kid with two front teeth that looked rotted out.

Ironically, she has no cavities and has very healthy teeth, according to the dentist. But I would much prefer to have a hidden cavity than a billboard of a tooth stain.

Am I an even worse mother for googling "veneers for children?"

In other news, Karol was a rock star at the dentist, even did much of her appointment without me in the room, and a just-in-case x-ray shows that the permanent teeth are totally fine/untraumatized.

Unfortunately that doesn't make me feel any better AT ALL.
