Smile Under Construction

As promised here is a picture of Zuki's current smile under construction.


I expected him to have trouble eating this burger, but as you can tell by the bite mark, fast food does not require actual teeth for mastication.

It explains why a lot of senior citizens eat this crap.

Although, I have to admit that B.K.'s coffee is like cocaine. Tastes like shit - but it gets me through the day without giving me the runs. Now that's a coffee-secret-formula if you ask me.

Apart from having a hard time discerning what this kid is saying, I'm having my own personal fun feeding him food that present some sort of challenge. Yes, it's cruel - like sticking scotch tape to the bottom of a cat's paw or sneaking up on Samu and scaring the nuts off him, but I'm not biased - I do it to everybody with a temporary handicap. Including myself. I try to thread a needle with my contacts in. It's the most frustrating thing.

The food experiment kind of happened by accident. We had steak for dinner the other night. I cut the meat into bite sized cubes for O'Toothless One. He put it in his mouth and was about to eat it when his tongue pushed it right out the opening. He was like a Pez dispenser. Only with steak. Yes, he did re-eat it and no, I didn't laugh...I was hysterical with tears streaming down my face. Terrible, I know. If anything, the boys can write a book about how I traumatized them. Until then, I think I'll make peas tonight.

  1. Look how fast they grow! In the near future, I bet you'll be ratting out Zuki's girlfriend here.

    Okay, I really thought you'd tried sewing your contacts together! I'm really slow on the uptake this afternoon.
    CAUSE : Dysmennorhea! Ugh!
    But boy, I was the happiest girl when I saw that red yesterday! Hahahaha!

  2. Every time the big kids have their braces tightened I make something hard to chew. Like pork chops. It's my favorite day.

  3. @grapesandoranges: Ava, you're not slow - after re-reading that sentence, it does sound like I sew my contacts together. My heart goes out to you - my mom used to give me brandy for the pain.

    @Twinisms: Good for you! It builds character. Or dictators, but who's counting?

  4. Toothless Zuki looks adorable. The steak bit would have sent me over the edge too. When it happens to his little brother, Zuki will understand. Haha.

    As for that fast food burger, I often question if its even meat...

    1. Surely, it was a toothless kid that inspired the design.

  7. I can just about see this happening. Too funny! And you're right to laugh your behind off. I'm sure your mom and dad did the same with you when you lost your two front teeth.
