Good evening everyone. I hope all of you have had a good day. Me-tonight I am drained. Why you ask? Let me explain.
I am a worry wart. I know I shouldn't, but I tend to worry a lot about everything. Even crazy stuff I shouldn't let bother me. But...that's me.
A visiting preacher at our church Sunday talked about how easy it is to "give everything to God." How that can become routine. Yes, someone may walk to the altar but to actually walk away and whole heartedly give it to God is hard. He talked about how one can pray and hand over their troubles and problems to God but will still worry about the matter days later. I have to admit I am guilty of that too. Aren't you? Isn't it hard to really forget about something and let God handle it? If only I could learn to do that.
Anyway...Darbee Rae had a dentist appointment today. She had had a tooth right in the front filled months ago. One night, she was playing with a straw and stuck it in between her teeth. Out popped the filling. Oops! I called to make an appointment and for some reason or another had to wait.
Fast forward to today. Today was the day to have it filled again. She was very nervous about the shot, but was very brave. Her dentist is soooo good. She told her that her fingernail got in the way and "scratched" her. Hehe...they are so good. She told Darbee she would be sure and clip her nails right away! :) Too cute. Once she started drilling, she saw that she was going to get into the nerve. She stopped and wanted to x-ray it. She said if it was, she would feel better if she pulled it. We decided it would be best anyway and not take a chance of having her hurt later with nerve damage. So...she pulled my baby's first tooth. Right in front. Right before picture day.
Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck with a pounding headache when we walked out of there.
She was so brave. She NEVER flinched! Oh and guess what? Her two bottom teeth are loose too! Wow.
Here she is right afterward. She still looks a little loopy huh? Hehe...
Here she is tonight...so proud of her new hole and so very excited for the tooth fairy to come tonight.
She has a neat little box to put under her pillow tonight.
So...tonight I am relieved it is over. So proud of my big brave girl. A little sad that she is growing up so fast. Worried? Of course...a whole new set of worries. What will the kids say? Will they make fun of her? Oh my...be still my racing mind.
Another first down in the books.
Until next time....
