You were supposed to get a book review today, but I had a dentist appointment this afternoon. I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal, but I ended up needing three shots to numb one spot to work on one tooth. (Last night, I wasn’t feeling well, so you got another unplanned kid post.) So, I’m going to go lay my hungry self down for a little while (because of course I can’t eat right now – at supper time), get up and pop a couple of Tylenol, then lie back down again.
The boys ended up going with me for part of my appointment until their dad could get there to pick them up. Jeffrey had his DS and Bennett had books. They didn’t even need them. They sat in the floor in the corner and looked through the “goody basket” and talked to the dentist and her assistant. The boys were so sweet! I was so proud of them. I’m so glad I don’t have children that I have to worry about running around or messing with stuff at times like that. They can drive crazy at times, but they’re respectful and (mostly) mindful of how to act in certain situations. Not sure how much I actually had to do with that, but I’ll take credit for it anyway. I need something to make me feel better tonight.
When asked, Bennett told them he’s three and, “I’m going to have another birthday and I’ll be four.” The dentist asked him if he liked birthdays (of course he said yes) and if he had a cake on his birthday. She asked him what was on his cake. “Letters and numbers.” That’s my boy.
