The sleep must have done him well because he was much better by the next day.
Alex has discovered this chair where he loves to sit and watch Sesame Street.
Yesterday I took the boys to the dentist for the first time. I had waited so long with Dennis because I knew he would be scared and figured that soon enough he would be having major mouth reconstruction done and he could then have whatever cavities he had filled. But, I could visually see a cavity on Dennis that I knew should be at least looked at so I took the boys in together.
Alex went first. He was so brave! He never cried and behaved wonderfully-- and the best news is no cavities!
I was hoping Dennis would have just as great of an experience after watching his older brother but that wasn't the case. The hygienist was so gentle and nice with him but he still cried. I sat next to him hovering over him with both my hands on him to give him comfort yet he held onto my shirt for dear life anyway! They quickly did a little brushing after trying to get front x-rays.
The dentist informed us that Dennis has five cavities-- two of which need immediate attention. She referred us to a dentist that does general anesthesia-- so whenever they can get us in Dennis will be having dental work done. Near the end of the visit Dennis began relax but when he knew we were done-- he headed straight for the door!
Back on Saturday a young man came to our house selling a biodegradable cleaning product. He had such a good personality and attitude that regardless of how well the product worked, we were going to buy it to show our support. He was friendly and working hard to make a sale so we wanted to encourage him however we could. Besides the product worked okay.
Naturally, I came in and got to work cleaning the girls' shoes that had failed to come clean in the washing machine with bleach and spot remover. As I scrubbed the shoes, they looked cleaner but the oil stains that had come from the girls propping up the motor scooter on their foot to start it was still there. Sigh... oh well... we set them out to dry overnight.
I wonder if it can do anything to the nail polish stain on the girls' carpet?
