In the dentist chair, that is. That little filling that needed repaired? It turned into a full root canal and filling. My mouth is very. very. sore. The dentist gave me a prescription for Lortab, but I’m sweating it out with ibuprofen cause I don’t like that loopy feeling.
Jonathan had three baby teeth pulled to make room for his GIANT adult teeth that are coming in, and all four of the kids had cleanings and check-ups. No cavities, yay!
The coolest thing was that the kids sat in the waiting room for most of the 3 hours and 45 minutes – minus their 20 minute check-ups – and were pretty darn near perfect little angels. I asked one of the techs how the kids were doing when she came through, and she said, “Oh, they’re doing great. You have such well-mannered children, Carrie.” Did this mama’s heart good. Of course, it helped that they had Cars on DVD going in the waiting room.
So there’s something else crossed off my “I’ve never…” list. I’ve now experienced a root canal – and I hope it’s the last!
