Adventures In Dentistry
My innocent, unsuspecting children have had the misfortune of inheriting my junk teeth genes. That means that this morning at 6:15 (that's a.m., folks) we left our humble abode to go to the office of our very own pediatric dentist, Dr. Scholzen, so that he could knock our children out and do some serious dental work on both of them. We finally got home at 11:00, with two sicky, sleepy kids. After laying in Mommy and Daddy's bed and getting waiting on hand and foot for awhile, they are now fully on their way to recovery! It's a pretty pathetic sight to sit next to your honey in the recovery room, each with an semi-conscious, barfing child in arms. The highlight: when they were finally well enough for us to go and we carried them into the foyer. Then K.J. barfed all down Ben's back and the floor! 30 seconds later, Olivia barfed down my arm and onto the floor! Best barf ever, for our family. It was embarrassing but funny to see the three receptions frantically trying to hold up garbage cans and wipes, and the two unfortunate kids who witnessed it and were totally disgusted. But tooth wise all went well and I'm truly thankful for the benefits of modern medicine and the coupons from the paper, 'cause that saved us one hundred bucks! If any of you are looking for a dentist for your kids, I would really recommend Dr. Scholzen. He was great with them, especially today when the work was being done, and his staff was awesome and so concerned and attentive. And, most importantly, my kids weren't scared -- and they are already talking about it as a positive experience. Go, team! Only $950 to go and this dental visit will be totally paid off!!!
