So yesterday was a huge milestone for me, it was the first time I left E with anyone other than family. A few weeks ago I signed her up for hourly care on post (don't get me started on the government hiring freeze that is closing many of these programs across military bases). I wanted to have her enrolled so that in case I had an appointment, I could drop her off and pay the $4/hour to have a bit of piece of mind. I had a dentist appointment and knew that it probably wasn't a good idea to take her.
So I got her backpack all ready and off we went. She was SO happy to see other kiddos, I sat her down with the other little ones and she immediately started to play. I snuck out of the room and did my best to not burst into tears.
This is exactly how I felt on the inside but I held it together haha!
Once my appointment was over, I raced to get her and found her happily playing with another little girl. She kept handing her toys and laughing. It was the cutest thing. The teacher said she did so good and never cried once. I'm one happy mama! She must have had fun because she slept through our errands and getting taken out/put in her carseat twice.
Ok, so let's talk about the damn dentist appointment. I had a cleaning last year and was told that everything was good. Well, I decided to see a new dentist because the other place just didn't give me that warm fuzzy feeling. Well, according to this dentist, I have 4 impacted wisdom teeth! WTF!? I requested the xrays from the previous dentist and sure enough that's the case. How in the actual hell did they not notice were my new dentists exact words. My new dentist said that it normally wouldn't be a huge issue but the wisdom teeth are slowly shifting the teeth next to them and could cause major issues down the road.
This is how I feel about dentists and this visit just made it worse.
So now this girl gets to have her wisdom teeth removed, woo!!! Thanks old sucky dentist for not doing your job.
Here is hoping that today is better haha. :)
