Kid Kronicles Dental Disaster

Oh dear heavens.  

I have sooo much to do right now-yet I've spent 3 days in DOCTOR & DENTIST offices last week!!!

Ugh.  

I gotta tell ya.. I feel like I've completely taken my health for granted.  

I think about families that are in and out of doctors and dentists offices on a daily basis.  I don't know how they do it...not even to mention if they have a full-time job and do it?!?!?!  

I'm very grateful to have my own business and the flexibility to come and go as I need.  

Now that I'm done with my waa-waa-waa-I've got to kick myself in the a$$.

The mom guilt has totally taken over right now.  

I completely fear my kid is going to have my bad mouth.  

No.. I'm not talking my potty mouth (although that might be an issue LATER in life LOL).  But my dental disaster.

I know they say it can be 'hereditary' but just like being a fat kid with a normal sized family.... it can't be all 'hereditary'!!! 

My husband and I both stopped in our tracks and about went to tears thinking about that kid having to be in any pain.  

He's such a sweetheart.  And it wasn't HIS fault he's got this issue.

Three freaking cavities. 

At the first dentist, who is a friend and former neighbor of mine... I drove an hour 1/2 to take Boston to his office because I thought Boston would be great since he 'knows' him.  (Dr. Pete Andolino in Bethlehem, by the way.  He's a great dentist and and even greater dude. =)  

Well....turns out, it wasn't the best fit for Boston because he didn't let them finish.  He made it through the 1st half....then tanked my heart when they had to do the 2nd half.

I can't blame him.  I mean, seriously, I am a complete DISASTER in a dentist chair.

So what did I learn from this?  

*NO MORE CANDY!!

*BRUSH HIS TEETH 15 TIMES A DAY!!

*#2 WILL GO TO DENTIST FOR 1ST CHECK UP AT 2, NOT 4 LIKE BOSTON!!

*#2 WILL NOT GO TO BED WITH A BOTTLE WITHOUT BRUSHING TEETH

*Love the living daylights out of that kid.  

Poor kid.  He's already genetically prone to my insanities, addictions & issues.  Now he has to worry about his teeth falling out?

Yes.  I'm swimming in a pool of patheticness right now.

So until 1st of October when he gets that mega-hole in his two front teeth filled....I get to see his gorgeous smile with a little less than normal there.  He kind of looks like Ed Helms in The Hangover. hahahaha.  Sorry, but comeon that was a funny movie!

Did you have dental issues with your kids?  Would love to hear your 'Mom of the Year' stories.  =)
