tommy just took the boys to the dentist. all three of them. this is the one aspect of parenthood i will not be responsible for. i HATE the dentist, so i am not going to be responsible for making my chidlren undergo the torture that is the dentist's chair. it's pretty dumb really, considering tommy had to take a day off work to do this, but oh well...i take care of all the other details, i am giving myself a free pass on this.
now, here is where i really begin to question my sanity...as i send my sons out the door to the dentist, my daughters are crying (because they want to go too. they have no idea i sent them off to be tortured). what do i do to make them stop crying? why i give one a taffy, one a fruit roll-up and then both of them gum. for real?!?! what kind of example is that. here, you don't have to go to the dentist so let's find the worst stuff for your teeth that we have in the house and eat it all at once! mother of the year indeed.
ps - the picture is of the girls showing you their gum. cara has been wearing the tutu nonstop for three days now. she also swallowed her gum immediately, but when i said show me your gum, she opened wide.
also, last week i was given a friendship award by my friend at her sane with out drugs blog (http://sanewithoutdrugs.blogspot.com/) and i am to pass it on to five others! thank you again for giving me this. i would like to forward it to:
i picked these girls simply because i really like their blogs. hopefully, someday i will earn how to post links and this will look a lot cooler, until then, sorry.
