I naturally freaked out. After 15 years of parenting, one would think I was past having that sort of reaction, but no. I got on the phone and tried to work out our new insurance which doesn't cover any local dentists around here-- so I began to rack my brain. Then I remembered that our old dentist made me promise to call her if Dennis had any problems-- even if our new insurance wouldn't cover the visit-- and even though she just had a baby a few weeks ago. Praise the Lord that she is going to see Dennis tomorrow!
For now, Motrin and sleeping with Mom will have to suffice.
Since it is getting dark much earlier than it used to, the kids now have to find things to keep themselves busy inside. The tv has not been on much so drawing has become the latest craze-- and I mean craze! Tonight William drew a picture of a boy named Binky.
I asked William if it was okay if I referred to him as Binky Boo.
William said it was okay.
P.S. Tomorrow is picture day. Sveta and Anastasia cleaned up the kitchen and made it look brand new! I spent a full hour on fractions with Rachel tonight and I am still not sure if she understands them. I am remaining hopeful that homeschooling her will give her plenty of individual attention to master those fractions! Adam began his online driving course, and John spent the day trenching for sprinklers.
