Well, after a trip to the dentist this morning, the older two boys are sitting in their third period class as I type this. They were most irritated and unenthusiastic when I dropped them off after their teeth cleanings.
They had over a week's vacation! There was no school Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and this morning there was a two hour delay. I am not exactly certain why. However, the kids were extremely happy and I was loving having them all home again, just like the good old days, so I don't really care why! It said something on the school and/or weather site (can't recall which one) about another "winter storm". We got a chuckle out of that! A few inches of snow is a storm!?!? Hmmmmm...
Tomorrow is a half day and then the weekend again. So basically a total of one full day in one week, is how much time the boys will have spent at school this week. They are so pleased and have had a lovely time playing video games, sleeping in and playing in the snow.
Speaking of snow. All the sledding was most helpful in extracting one of Clown's loose front teeth!
It also knocked another loose one so hard that it was just barely hanging on. At his dental appointment for his fillings this morning, it popped out. So he has it under his pillow waiting for the tooth fairy. I told him the $ he is earning is just in time for buying his siblings their Christmas gifts. He didn't seem too keen on that idea! LOL
Poor Princess. We noticed some months ago that her two lower front permanent teeth (I never know the names of these things) were coming in behind the baby ones who were not even loose. So when I took her for her regular appointment and cleaning a few weeks back, they said they would pull those as well as one on either side of those. By then, the front ones were a wee bit loose. But since the permanent ones were coming in behind, it was messing things up. So the poor thing had to have those four teeth extracted this morning. She was really brave, but they came to get me and told me that she ended up crying a bit anyway and they thought I should sit with her. When she saw me, she really started crying and laid her head in my lap. I thought she was really brave! She bled for quite a while and is now laying and watching a Christmas Movie with Clown.
So that is an update for now. I hope to get Brain's birthday post done soon, still trying to get my hands on some baby pictures of him. He has told me he doesn't want me to call him Brain on here and he is thinking of another name. Hope it doesn't confuse anyone when I start to use it!!!
