So, I really don't have a whole lot to say lately, which is neither good nor bad, it just is. So, I will just tell you about my day on Thursday for lack of anything better to tell y'all!
- Little Miss Maicy had a dentist appointment Thursday morning. Dentist appointments do not go well for this child. So much so in fact, that the dentist in OC decided that he didn't want to see her anymore, and she was sent on to a pediatric dentist instead. Yup, that's my girl! We first went to this dentist in August. This check up went okay, I knew she had a teeny tiny cavity that needed to be filled (she just didn't let our usual dentist do it!). And then they told me she needed to have a tooth pulled. Again. I nearly lost it. I watched her have a tooth pulled once before and let me tell you, there is no way I was going to be able to put my baby girl through that moment again! So, for 2 months I dreaded this day, I prayed, and I pleaded, and I whined about what this day would be like! I never did tell her that they were going to pull a tooth. All she knew was that she was getting a cavity filled and then we had to back in the afternoon for space maintaners to be put in where the first tooth was out. (she wouldn't let our dentist put it in when we had the first tooth out. If you are wondering why dentists are so overpaid-- this is why! putting up with kids like mine!)
- So D-Day arrived, and we had to head out by 7:15am to get Jackson dropped off and to make the hour 20min drive up there. I bribed her with Red Rossa pizza and gelato, but she still wasn't real sure. Then I promised I would take her to Target to buy a nice present - no I don't believe bribery is wrong! She decided she wanted the Barbie Hair Salon, so she was going to be brave! And guess what... they called her back, and she went quite happily. I got to sit in the waiting room since they don't let parents go back -smartest thing they ever did if you ask me! - and I read my book for almost 2 hours and tried not to think about what was happening. I prayed and prayed and then she came out. Then they showed her the tooth, and her response? "you took my tooth out?! I thought he just was wiggling it! Huh, I didn't feel a thing!!" Thank you, Jesus! I cannot tell you the relief that came out of me at that moment! This was my answered prayer this week.
- By the way, Target was out of the Barbie Salon, went to Kohls next, they didn't have it either, but they had a great Melissa & Doug Food set, which she loves. Now we play restaurant non-stop. (she doesn't even play with her Barbies, so this worked out!) And we ate at the mall cafe court since it was so cold and rainy we just wanted to stay at the mall instead of running in and out of the rain. She had potato soup. The entire day didn't go according to my plan, and I couldn't be happier!
God is Good! All the Time!
