I took the younger boy to the orthodontist today. While he was going through an examination and telling the tech what notes to make in his file, the younger boy pointed at one of his teeth.

"This one's D?"

The orthodontist looked surprised and said yes. They began a little conversation where the younger boy got to learn the 'names' of all his teeth. When they were done, the orthodontist gave me a very serious look and said, "You know he's pretty smart."

I guess I didn't think anything of his figuring things out...but then I'm not an orthodontist and don't have a frame of reference for determining what is normal and what is not in that context. From his reaction, I gather it's pretty infrequent when a 2nd grader figures out the code language he's speaking.

Younger boy and the orthodontist hit it off, so younger boy seems okay with the fact he's going to need braces for a few months.
