I thought she would take them off immediately, but she kept them on all day.
A dark haired Cinderella...with a birthday crown
Stella Bella Bumble Bee!
Fia and her cousin Grant. She decided that a blue ribbon in her hair would be more accurate. Nevermind the fact that Cinderella is not Asian. Maybe Mulan would have been easier for her to pull off.
My two girls!

The Chicago Fire had their first playoff game tonight and Peter let Fia stay up late to watch the beginning. He made it an occasion with jerseys, cheering, and even popcorn. I fear that he's already created a monster.
#5. The taste left in my mouth is terrible. Not minty toothpasty fresh....more of a toxic cleaner masked with a mint flavor.
#4. I leave their office and my teeth, gums, and entire jaw all hurt. They didn't necessarily hurt when I walked in. Shouldn't the idea of dentists be that they make you feel better?
#3. They tell me my gums shouldn't bleed...well, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't if they hadn't just jammed floss between them so hard that they carved right into them. I bet the same would happen to them if I sliced into open flesh with a strong piece of string.
#2. I get berated by the techs and the dentist about how I don't brush or floss enough. I don't share my opinion about how they should lay off the donuts and cookies. I politely keep my mouth shut about their growing waistlines and depreciating appearances....while they are allowed to hammer me about my dental hygiene....so leave me alone. I brush twice a day and floss once every other week (at best). I will not change my routine.
and the #1 reason......
#1. Why must the dentist or tech ask me questions when I have 8 pieces of hardware sticking in my mouth? Not only is my mouth open so far that my lips are tearing, but you have a water line, a suction thingy, a mirror, a drill, a set of fingers, and/or a very sharp pick in my mouth all at the same time. Not to mention the two sets of beady eyes staring down into my mouth at a very clausterphobic distance. Now is NOT a time to ask questions or start small talk. My concerns during that moment are not gagging, not gleeking, and not whimpering from the pain they are causing. Somehow I feel this should be obvious to them. Grrr......

I have had a recent string of bad luck. Last week I started to have a bad toothache. I tried to ignore it fearing the worst. On Monday evening it went from bad to worse to unbearable. I was taking vicodin all night, but all it did was make me puke. I literally did not sleep one minute that night. I just had my 4th root canal yesterday. I will get fitted for a crown tomorrow. Not fun. If anyone wants good luck, then do NOT hang around with me.

This film is a bit old. The website dontbethatguy.com has some more funny videos. This is the original car version, which I think is better than the newer one.

I am a text message idiot. I am proud to say that I know how to send a text message, but I am completely lost on all the new abbreviations and lingo. Unless the word I am abbreviating is VERY obvious, I will text the entire word. I only just learned how to use the T9 or !TapEng function on my phone...which, btw, is awesome. Apparently, there are hundreds of new abbreviations, but most of them seem entirely useless. If you're going to go through all the trouble to have a text conversation, then why don't you just call the person?

Sofia has always been quite articulate. She began speaking quite early and has since been making me laugh on a daily basis. Just a few examples are:
4. "I have big guns (muscles) and you have short ones"

Stella smiles no matter what
This is clearly Cinderella's pumpkin
Not sure what that is Fia....let's just put it down.....now
A much needed family picture. We haven't had one in ages.
Fia is roller coaster ready
Stella sat still for about 2 minutes, but then kept trying to crawl off the moving wagon.
Fia found the winner
