Ugh - I am ready to kill DH. He told me to schedule Gabe's dentist appt for this morning but then he said last night, "you know I have meetings every Thursday morning!" So I had to take him (as usual). I wanted him to take him this time to 1) share the burden and 2) hope that Gabe would be a little more cooperative with him there. Well it was awful. I think he was still scarred from last time (doc tried putting in a filling but didn't think it was a good idea to finish because Gabe was fidgeting too much so he only got it 3/4 drilled and put in a temporary filling). This time was much much worse. Tried nitrous, tried oral sedation, and I still had to lay on top of him to hold down his arms and legs. He ended up needing a root canal and a crown! So on top of all this, I'm getting the carpets cleaned today and I have two days to get ready for one of my 2 biggest meetings of the year (leaving for Florida at 5 a.m. Saturday). I have Gabe home with me due to the sedation, but at least he is being mellow. On top of all of that...our tenants only paid a little over half the rent last month and nothing this month, so he wants me to email the attorney about evicting them. Ummm...no...why the frack can't you handle it??? Ugh. Oh, and I have to handle tax sh*t today too. Boo-hoo...can't wait until wine-30!

The dentist said they work different...some kids it kicks in right away and really mellows them out, and with others (Gabe) it's a more subtle but longer-lasting effect. Kind of like how Benadryl doesn't make all kids sleepy.

That makes sense. Taylor had to have an EEG when he was just 2 and the meds to make him sleep wired him and he didn't have the test.

Speaking of Tay, he has 2 warts on his hand. I took him to the dr this afternoon and they froze them. He has to go back for another round in 2 weeks. Fun times.

My boss is soooooooooooooo stupid! The new kid in my class is eating all kinds of things, like the rug in my room, his crayons, paper, and even his chewy tube. I had talked with his mom one time and my assistant had talked to her twice and mom said she wasn't worried because at home he spits the stuff out that he chews on. Well at school he is digesting it and she won't believe us. I talked to my boss about it yesterday and she said, "Since mom's not worried about it we shouldn't be." Ok, let him eat what ever he wants and when he ends up in the ER and needs a surgery they can sue us.

Oh Val...that is absolutely ridiculous! Such is the difference between public school and private school.
