I have been so neglectful of my blog. Please forgive me.
But did you know that parenting takes up so much time. I mean between the Wacky Wednesdays and the Freaky Fridays and this activity and that activity and this doctor and that special thing, I am just beat.
Needless to say, I have been neglectful and I am now going to keep up.
I have the best story to tell about my most recent visit to the Dentist with Ziggy.
Oh please indulge me for just one minute... this is a story that will go down in history.
Ziggy has never had any positive experiences at the Dentist. His first two times he had to have teeth extracted because he has a junk mouth.
Apparently he had been sitting in front of the refrigerator drinking syrup. You ask how long? Until his teeth needed to be pulled. Mind you I have created a food restricted home on too many levels to list here.
I like syrup with my waffles. I make them fresh every morning. I have a waffle iron that I leave out on my counter just like my George Foreman grilling machine.
Oh but I digress. So we go to the Dentist this past Wednesday. We have been speaking to him about it. He has made it clear that he does not like the people, the place and all he wants are the gooddies you get after. We have played all kinds of games and even practiced in the chair at home so he knows what he is getting into. I asked as many questions and got what worked from all sources.
Well we get there and he won't open his mouth for x-rays. Nope not doing it. He had a fit! And it just kept escalating.
At one point with three assistants, the Dentist and myself trying to hold him down -- he screams "this is the worst nightmare of my life". He then tells me "You cannot hold me down against my will! I am terrified and I am going to faint".
I did not know whether to laugh or cry.
After it was all said and done the Dentist asked how does he do under sedation. I could not have been happier. So we scheduled him to go to Scottish Rite to have all the work done. The last time he had his tonsils out we were out of there in just under an hour because he was hungry and ready to go.
Even though parenting takes up a lot of time, it also pulls on my heart strings.
until we meet again,
