Our first small trauma

Xander slipped and fell on the concrete, at the park. I saw him fall and it seemed he caught himself with his hands. He must have made contact with his face to the ground for a split second, and it was enough to fracture one of his front teeth in three places!

After telling me his tooth was broken, I saw what looked like two teeth. Like a second tooth was pushed out over his baby tooth. But it was his one tooth broken and rearranged with the impact (::::::shudder:::::::).

Here he is with his fractured tooth, too damaged for repair:

He was sedated and the broken tooth was pulled. He will have a gap, right in the front, for the next 3-4 years. My little guy. Its so weird to see this broken smile.
