Today I took the girls to the Dentist for the first time since the move. It was insane, as always, getting all the kids ready and out the door. I figured it would be like an hour total. They would get their teeth cleaned and I’d drop Kaylee off to school. I didn’t even consider that they might actually have cavities! Both of them had 2!
went first. They did x-rays. Then it was Brenna’s turn. She was so
brave! They counted her teeth and cleaned them. She wasn’t scared at
all! They kept calling her Brianna though, which is really common when
people read her name. I couldn’t help but feel like maybe we should have
named her Brianna instead to make her life easier...she would be a cute
Brianna. Oh well.
Brenna was all done, they sent us into the waiting room. They did the
nitrous oxide to calm her. They filled both cavities sealed her
permanent molars. Ammon was bouncing off the walls and running around in
circles the entire time. He found one of those vacuum things in the
wall and kept flipping it, making a very loud sound every time.
Kaylee came out, she looked like she was on the verge of tears. She
kept saying, “Mom, why does my face feel puffy?” Apparently they had
used some local anesthetic, so she was all numb. They had also placed
cotton balls in their so she wouldn’t bite her cheek. She couldn’t wait
to take those out! Once the numbing stuff wore off, she was in pain. The
poor thing cried and cried. She was in no condition to go to school. I
gave her the choice of going to school or staying home. She chose to
stay home, so I knew she was hurting a lot. I gave her some tylenol and
sent her to bed for a nap. She slept a good 2 hours! Ammon won the
contest though...he slept like ALL day. They have all had what seems to
be pink eye and the ‘crud’ cold. I figured he needed the sleep!
came down and helped me wash the dishes. She loved it! It was the first
time she’d ever really done that with me, and she did a very good job!
She felt so big!
made five-spice chicken for date night. I spent the rest of the day
cleaning the house really well and I set up dining in our bedroom like
we usually do on Friday nights. We were going to go to the park since it
was so warm and sunny, but I decided not to with all that was going on
with poor Kaylee. She’s had a rough week! I fed the kids and put a movie
in. When Nate got home, we fed the kids and took our food upstairs. It
is SO nice to have a few minutes (literally that’s all we get) just to
focus on each other!
We let the kids sleep on the couch. We heard Ammon awake at 11! Sheesh. What will we ever do with that boy?
