Katie's Big Day At The Dentist

It's crunch time now, getting all the doctor appointments in before school starts in August. I don't want Katie to miss any unnecessary days from school.

Katie's been going with me to the dentist for last few years, so she knows the drill and she's somewhat familiar with the office. The only difference is they were going to work on her instead of me. I was so proud of her, how brave she was during her first cleaning. Her Hygienist, Meghan, did such a great job with her. Katie let Meghan do a full cleaning and x-rays without as much as a twitch. Meghan said Katie's teeth looked real good and we got to see her 6 year old molars making their appearance under her gums. Dr. Green looked at Katie's teeth and the x-rays. He noticed a tiny black dot between her two molars on the x-rays. He said it was a very small pit, but was afraid to let it go. He wants to go ahead and fill it next week. He noticed another small spot on the x-rays, but only he could really see it. He said that he'll just have to keep an eye on it. Okay. As Dr. Green and I were chit chatting about our girls, he told me that his little girl was accepted into Katie's school. They live out of district, so he'll have to pay an out of district fee. I was tempted to ask Dr. Green if he was wanting to fill an invisible "pit" to pay for his child's tuition. Ha! I digressed. He's a real sweet man and I guess in the long run, I'd rather her go ahead, get it filled instead of it getting worse later down the road. When Katie and I got back in our vehicle to leave, I asked her if she liked Dr. Green and Meghan. She said her favorite part was Meghan brushing her teeth with grape flavor toothpaste. Haha! I asked her if she liked Dr. Green. She said no. I asked her if it was because he was a man, she smiled and shook her up and down.  She was such a trooper that I told her, we could go to Walmart and get her a toy.  At first, she didn't want to go, but soon took a deep breath and said "ok, I guess I can go to Walmart and get a toy today."  Only Katie. 

I had to go to Walmart for the last minute cake and ice cream necessities for our mini party this Saturday.  I bought the gallon of chocolate ice cream last week and instead of buying a gallon of vanilla, I decided to grab the cookies and cream.  Most of my family prefers chocolate over vanilla and I knew Doug's mom and dad likes cookies and cream.  Of course, I got all of the goodies to make an excellent ice cream sundae, including: chopped peanuts, sprinkles, hot fudge, whip cream and candied cherries.  Let's not forget a moist delicious golden butter Hannah Montana cake with white icing with lots of pink and purple delectable frosting embellishments.  YUM! 

Tomorrow is Katie's 5th birthday.  YAY!  We've got special plans for the birthday girl tomorrow.  She's so excited that you would think she's jacked up on sugar tonight.  I can already tell we're going to have a tough time getting her in bed tonight.  When I told her this morning that tomorrow was her birthday, she's been telling everybody.  She told Meghan, Dr. Green, Peggy and Millard that her birthday is tomorrow and she will be 5.  I've had to explain to her a few times that eventhough she is turning 5 tomorrow that doesn't mean tomorrow is her birthday party.  While we were in Walmart, she told me 3 times that tomorrow her Grandma Peggy and Paw-Paw Millard was finally going to give her the Woody doll that she's been wanting.  She spotted Peggy with it last weekend when her and I went shopping with them.  They tried hiding it in the buggy and then once they checked out, they put it in a plastic bag and placed it underneath the buggy.  Katie came running up to me as I was waiting for them and pointed it out to me.  She whispered in my ear, "they got me the Woody doll, see."  as she was giggling.  I asked her how did she know it was for her.  She said she didn't, but she really wanted it.  Today at Walmart, when she told me.  I told her that she wasn't suppose to know about it.  She giggled and said "I know, but I just love it."  I tried shaming her for spoiling her surprise, but she didn't seem to care too much.  LOL!  You'll have to stay tuned tomorrow to find out what we did.  There will be lots of pictures.  By the way, how do you like my header.  I worked on it most of the morning.  The biggest problem I had was finding the right picture.  I had the hardest time deciding which one to use, but I thought this one was priceless.  Colton is reaching for me to hold him.  I thought it was so sweet.  I'm not too in love with the layout, but I'll be checking out some sites.  I was somewhat interested in Shaggy Blogs background.  It was pink and black with flowers.  It might go good with my header.

Happy Birthday, Katie!

You are braver about filling a cavity than I am. Every time we take Alise to the dentist, I hold my breath because if she ever gets one, I just don't think I'll have the heart to let the dentist fill it. I still have nightmares of that ordeal!

P.S. I am SO sad that we aren't at the beach this week celebrating Wayne and Katie's birthdays. Darn oil spill. Stupid BP!

I love Dr.Green and Meghan too! Meghan was in cooking class with me and that's how I found Dr. Green.
Pray for us as Anya has to be sedated on Aug. 6th for her teeth problems. She had baby bottle tooth decay on some of her teeth.
Pray for me too as I continue to fight over the use of the gas chamber as the animal shelter.
Love the header, so cute! Call me when you can and have a great weekend!
