Ricky went to get his teeth cleaned a few days ago and something happened that I thought was kinda silly. No I’m not laughing at his bad teeth – that’s not what happened. His teeth are in surprisingly good condition – considering getting him to brush his teeth is harder than doing a double back flip.
What did happen was this. Ricky has gotten in to a bad habit of licking his lips and we can’t seem to get him to stop. They’ve been horribly chapped since May – SERIOUSLY – MAY! When the dental assistant came in and saw Ricky, she simply said, “Well, what do we have here?” To which my wife answered, “He’s a licker.” They both grinned and got a bit of a kick out of it.
Then the Dentist – who we know well, and who knows Ricky well – walked in, and in an attempt to get Ricky to smile said, “WHOA!” PIC HERE
