Teeth and T-Ball

April 26, 2006 Categories: Kid Stuff , This and That | 2 Comments  

We had our bi-yearly dental check-up today. My mommy pride came out in full force when one of the technicians said, “Your kids are always so well-behaved!” Natalie and Noah did great – no cavities. Jonathan has a baby tooth that is not coming out as quickly as it should and so will go back in two weeks to have it pulled. Natalie also has one that needs to come out, but the dentist said she could have a month to get it out on her own, so she’s highly motivated. Josiah has a small cavity between two teeth. Bad Mommy for not helping him floss often enough.

Nice to have all the check-ups over at the same time, but makes for a long afternoon. On the plus side, I almost finished The Unschooling Handbook while I waited. Recommended for all homeschoolers, not just unschoolers, in my opinion. Lots of good stuff in there.

Home in time to throw a load of laundry in, clean the kitchen and eat dinner and now we’re heading out to a T-Ball game. We are playing the team of one of my best friend’s sons, so I’ll have someone fun to sit with and chat. Last year, we signed up with several friends from church, and it was so much more fun. They’re all doing different things this year, and the other parents aren’t real friendly. Not near as much fun.

Have a great evening!

    Hey, MOM! You didn’t say that I pulled out my tooth that day when we went to te-ball.

    Congrats Natalie!

    Carrie, can you tell me the gist of unschooling from your perspective? I think I would always be stressed that my kids weren’t learning what they should. Email me.
