Bogay Rummy (Toothless Rummy)

At the age of 15 and a half weeks, Rummy just became "Bogay". Bogay is a Teo Chew word, meaning toothless. Yup, my baby brother just lost his two front lower teeth.

For the last 2 weeks, Mum has been checking on this teeth and gums every single day. We knew his lower front 2 teeth were shaky, but then when he lost them, we didn't know. He may have swallowed his teeth when he was eating, or he may have dropped them chewing on toys. We don't know where he lost them.

Today, he dropped his two upper front teeth, and the new adult teeth are already starting to peak.

At night time, Mum rubs Bonjela onto his gums to sooth his pains, and he seems to like it. Stay tuned for more teeth losing and growing tales..
