Genetics are amazing. You see your kids and you notice they have your nose or they have your husbands eyes. I know that one day I will probably have diabetes because both sets of grandparents have had diabetes. But, this is the first time that a genetic trait is so obvious. Same tooth, same side of the mouth. I am fascinated by genetics and I think it is so interesting that something so obvious on Dresden is because of the genetic makeup of his parents. Fascinating.
Anyway, this really isn't a big deal and other than the expense of orthodontic care we could really care less. So he'll have a fake tooth...which I can just bet when he is a teenager a few pranks will be played on unsuspecting friends. Logan's permanent teeth will remain a mystery until he is six. The dentist will do the full mouth x-ray in a year. So, until then we won't know whose genetics played a part in the makeup of Logan's mouth.
By the way, did you know that it is recommended that your child's first visit to see the dentist should be when they are one. Seriously???!!! My boys didn't even have teeth when they were a year old.
