Oh Rose! Prayers on several fronts! I hope everything shifts back to where it belongs quickly without too much more trouble! And YOWZA on dh's company, etc. You made a teeny mention to that the other day and I wondered. God knows, right??? HUGS!!!
Hi Tracy!!! So glad to hear about your dd!
Hi Gina!! It's great to "see" you! My 15 yo asked me this morning about whether or not we were supposed to do a foreign language. It's on the "elective" list for our state and I just am totally not interested in fitting that in! Sorry--I'm not much help.
Had a good dentist appointment with the kids...at least no one needs to go back for fillings but here is the breakdown:
15 yo has a wisdom tooth hung up on another tooth. (I took our 18 yo for a consult a few months ago to a surgeon that kept touching her shoulder and her knee. When asked if she would like novocaine or be put under, she said novocaine as she was completely uncomfortable being put under with this dr. We had a 2nd opinion done and this one was much more conservative and saw no issues of concern. So we shall take 15 yo to this guy!)
14 yo has 7 mini cavities due to his "gum habit". They want him swishing with fluoride every day.
12 yo has 5-6 mini cavities due to his "soda habit". Same as above. I'm thinking dh will be more likely to back me up when I say NO!!!!
10 yo apparently has NO bone under her 2 bottom front teeth!!! Not sure what in the world will happen there. The dentist tends to be a bit of an "alarmist" but I don't want to discount her concerns...especially in this case. (Alarmist in that the wisdom teeth MUST be pulled before they are a problem. 14 yo might want braces to pull his top teeth together to eliminate the teeny gap...good grief! He is still growing and will be having more teeth come in!!! I guess we are supposed to have "perfect" teeth!) I asked our dentist to call our orthodontist (she was recommending someone else). We feel our ortho is conservative, reasonable, and not after the all-mighty dollar. One thought is that with braces they could pull the top and bottom teeth more to the front...as teeth move, bone grows. Another thought is that she is only 10 1/2 and she could be growing more...so bone will grow. She has no gum line there as there isn't anything to attach to. Sigh--a good knock from a sibling and they could "fly right out", according to dentist. Her teeth are so perfectly straight with such a nice even roundedness.
Okay---heat index is supposed to be 100 for the next 3 days. Will be a little hard to take after the perfect, humidity free days we have had! Oh well...it's New England!! LOL
Have a great day, everyone!
