What Big Teeth You Have!

While sharing information about dental health and how the amount of teeth changes over a lifespan, Ayana (5 years old) was surprised to know that Mom and Dad has 32 teeth, whereas she only has 20. What seemed to come as more of a surprise was learning that Naabiah (3 years old) has MORE teeth than her because some of Ayana's "baby teeth" has already fallen out!


Also, to demonstrate how our teeth are used to help us speak, the children were challenged to say "thirty thieves" without pressing their tongue against their teeth.  Needless to say, those were funny sounds to behold!
