A Tooth and Some Glasses

I took M to the dentist yesterday because Tuesday night she had been complaining about a tooth ache. I looked in her mouth and didn't see anything, so I gave her some Tylenol and sent her to bed. In the morning I asked how she was feeling. She said she was a little better but now there was a bump in her mouth. When I looked in her mouth in the morning a saw a huge bump with an infection. Great. So, I called the dentist to get her an appointment. We went in and the dentist told us the best way to take care of it would be to pull it since it was a baby molar. I kind of figured that was what they would do. They number her up, well at least they tried. The infection was so bad that they couldn't really numb the area well enough, but he pulled the tooth anyways. My poor little M was in some major pain. She tried to be so brave, but the tears just kept coming. When we got in the car she asked if she could have a drink from Sonic. How could I say no to that? When we got home, she laid in my bed for almost 2 hours. Poor girl. But, on a positive note, the tooth fairy was on time again!! She sure is getting good!

Today I took M and T to the eye dr. T needed a check up and M had been complaining that she was having a hard time seeing the board in class. T was fine, no change, needs to keep wearing his glasses for reading. M, however had big changes in her eyesight in the last year. She definitly needs glasses. She doesn't need to wear them all the time, but she does need to wear them most of the time in the classroom. She picked out a super cute pink pair. Kind of like the ones in this picture, but the pink is a little darker and there are stripes, not circles. I think she looks pretty cute in them. Fun times for M!
