Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

Both girls had a dentist appointment yesterday and Andrew had to work so I took them by myself knowing that Andi would have to do her cleaning solo. I told her ahead of time about being a big girl and boy was she ever! She went with the hygienist while I stayed with Lily. Lily’s cleaning requires my leg up on hers, my one hand holding her hands and my other holding her face. Sounds torturous, but she really likes cleaning, she just doesn’t stay still easily. She did great and we found out she had 3 of her 4 molars, I thought so, but got bit every time I checked AND her grown up teeth are almost all the way in on the bottom while those baby teeth are barely loose. Dentist said to just work on them and try to get them so she doesn’t aspirate them. Nice thought. That is so up Andrew’s alley I am sure he will mess with them until they come out. I cannot believe I have a child old enough to be loosing teeth. Sigh. No cavities!!
Andi did awesome with her cleaning. Couldn’t quite understand the xrays so they didn’t get those, but otherwise she looked great and no cavities!
Dentist commented on how beautiful both their teeth are. I’m sure he tells all the kids that, but I happen to think that my girls DO have beautiful teeth!
Lily had her 6 year well check (only 5 months late!) on Monday and all looked good. She is 50 lbs (!) and 48.5″ tall. WOW! No wonder I am dying here this last month of my pregnancy. She is so heavy! No shots. I refused the flu shot. I don’t really like injecting anything unnecessary in Lily. I know there are multiple opinions on shots, but my thought is she doesn’t need one. She eats awesome. She only has 6 kids in her class and even when she gets sick it is never anything horrible. I also got a rx from the Dr for diapers that are not generic. The state sends (and a lot) generic diapers that I do appreciate not having to buy them, but they are bad. They leak, they have no elastic so they cut into her skin and they stick out of her clothes. People stare enough at Lily, I rather not have her diaper sticking out to add to the content of what to stare at. I am going to send that rx over to our medical supplier and cross my fingers they approve it.
We are getting really far with the nursery. I say Ty Pennington eat your heart out! My husband is making the most original, gorgeous nursery, by his hands, and he is better looking than Ty AND much less hyper! Extreme Makeover you can use his services, we could use the ABC cashola! 🙂
