Dentist Appointment *Update*

This will be a two-part post. I usually don't do them, but I decided to try something new...and who knows - maybe it'll work. Stranger things have happened.

Baby Girl has a dentist appointment today at 10 (or is it 10:30). Maybe I should call and double check in an hour?

If you remember, she chipped her tooth two weekends ago. I just pray that it's not too late to fix the damage. I'd hate for her to go around with a chipped tooth. She just looks...I don't know...funky. Like a street urchin running amok on the streets. That's what she looks like. Or maybe I'm just hyper sensitive to the subject and being overly critical.

That's probably it.

So, here it is a little past 8 and the kids are still in bed. I figure I have another 30 minutes or so until I have to wake them up and get them functioning.

It's hard to believe that July is here...but I'm ready for school to start. The kids are constantly bored. Constantly. Still no word on the house, but if we're able to get it, I think it's going to be great. There is 6 acres for the kiddos to explore -- boredom should not be a problem. The pond, however, might be. You see, the Kiddos do not swim and I'd hate for there to be an accident. But all in all, the good outweigh the bad.

I'm running on empty this morning. The Man Beast brought home a cafe late from Ellianos last night so that I wouldn't crash on him after the kids went to sleep. Oh, I didn't crash alright. I was up until 2 am on a caffeine buzz!

I read the latest issue of All You! and when I got to the back, I did half of the crossword puzzle. I haven't done one of those in years. I'm not great at them, but it wasn't as hard as I remember them being. Maybe I'm getting smarter?

I'm not sure if this will send out twice once I update this post, so be sure to come back around noon or so for an update on Baby Girl.

That is, if I don't fall asleep first.


Baby Girl got her teeth cleaned, got x-rays and got a fluoride treatment. Completely not what she was supposed to go in for. *sigh*

She goes back in two weeks to get the tooth fixed. Providing she cooperates. If not, she'll be referred to a pediatric dentist in Valdosta -- an hour away.

She better cooperate.


  1. Yeah, I know all to well about the dentist. We are so lucky here in Tuscaloosa County that we have a childrens dentist. He has been really great with Liam. And Liam in turn, treats him really well and lets him work on his teeth. They offer flavored laughing gas at no extra charge, so the kids who have a hard time, like my son,can relax. The nice thing is, all the kids are in the same room and he has like 8 chairs set up etc. Really nice hygenists too. I hope your daughter will get over her fear. (not exactly what I want to call it, btw.)Blessings, my dear friend.

  2. I hope she does well. Dentists are scary to me, I can just imagine how scared I was when I was little.

    They always have to make multiple appointments don't they? That is annoying.

  3. I don't know why they divided the appointments up...that's why I feel there was a miscommunication between the front desk and myself.

    I'll definitely be posting an update in two weeks.

    Just please keep her in your prayers.

Life as a Paraprofessional vs Life as a Teacher: Part 1

hyena reality Eventually, I will write a lovely end-of-the-year post (probably entitled something original like: "What I Learned as a First-Year Teacher"), but this morning, I want to write about something a little bit different. The differences between  my life as a paraprofessional (teacher assistant)  and my life as a teacher . I'm sure many of you are aware that I began my life as an educator, not in the classroom, but in a lunchroom. After I had home schooled The Boy and Baby Girl for a couple of years, it became apparent that it wasn't working out any more and some changes needed to be made in our family. So, on that fateful day in November, I dropped both of the kiddos off at the Little Elementary School Around the Corner, The Boy, a 4th grader and Baby Girl, a 1st grader, while I headed off to work in the school cafeteria.  As a substitute cafeteria worker, filling in for the ladies who had to be out for whatever reason at various schools around

One of a Million New Year's post

Look around and you'll see that most everyone is posting some type of New Year's blog post this week. Check your blog rolls (or mine) for proof. I've looked at A Year in Review blogs, the best of the best blogs, most read posts blogs and my favorite: the new year resolutions (solutions, challenges, etc). Call me crazy, but I love these type of blog posts the best. Why? Because while most of us never keep our resolutions longer than a few hours days weeks months, there is something magical about the New Year. It is a chance to change whatever it is that was messed up for you during the previous year. Common resolutions include: 1. Stop smoking 2. Lose weight 3. Get organized 4. Save more 5. Spend less 6. Get to the project that is sitting in the basket, closet, or garage 7. Spend more time with family Did I hit them all? These are on most people's lists. (By the way, stay tuned for the end of this post for links to sites that can actually attempt to acc

Life as a Paraprofessional vs. Life as a Teacher: Part 3

This is the third part to a 3-part series chronicling my take on the differences between a job as a paraprofessional and a job as a teacher. (View Part 1 here and Part 2 here .) Let me preface this list by saying that I believe that paras and teachers have the potential to equally rock the education world. They can love and nurture students in a way that only an educator can. They can help students become great. That said - there are some definite differences between paraprofessionals and teachers. This list is not to say one is better than the other. Rather this is meant as a tongue-in-cheek comparison of how I perceive the differences of a paraprofessional's job and a teacher's job. (And any teacher who has worked as a para or vice versa should be able to relate to my list.) Paraprofessionals Vs Teachers Calendar Reduction Days – “Yay! I get another day off. Yeah, it kind of stinks that it’s a Calendar Reduction Day, but hey – a day of
