So the kids had their routine Dentist appointments today. We've had several issues with both kids and their teeth, but nothing was worse than when Puddin' Pop had to have her front 2 teeth pulled. She was not quite 2 and it was by far the hardest Mommy moment I've had. I know there are a lot of people who go through much worse with their children, so I feel bad mentioning it...but it crushed my heart.
Today I was informed that Boogie will be having a tooth pulled possibly in October. He had a filling that fell out (to the Dentist's amazement) and then abscessed with a temporary filling on, before they could get the re-placement filling installed. A round of antibiotics and the Dentist decided that the tooth was loose and there was no need to fill it. They are now just waiting for the back molar to get in enough to gauge the spacing required after extraction. I'm pretty sure it will not be as traumatic as PP's as he can tell us what is going on, but...I still have to wonder if knowing what is going on makes it worse. I've had several teeth pulled (as a kid) and actually had 8 teeth pulled at one time. I was 9 or 10 and don't even remember any one making a big deal about it...but he's my baby boy.
I definitely see some good wine reviews that week as I will need wine for the courage to take him, and for the awful Mommy feeling I'll have after it's done. If you have any wine you'd like to share or have reviewed...I'm your gal!
