yesterday Ryan was SUCH a trooper. He had gone to the dentist in March and they found 8 cavities. Yes, you read that right. E-I-G-H-T cavities. They were in four molars and one was so bad they thought he was going to need a crown. Well, the boy never ceases to amaze me. Once we got the diagnosis, he really got serious about taking care of his teeth. We bought a new mouthwash, stopped his constant snacking which they said was the cause, and really focused on how Ryan was brushing his teeth. All of that paid off because with all that work, he was able to retard the growth of the cavities and they were not as bad as they were when we went in March. Ryan got rave reviews from the dentist on that and made it through an hour of dental work like a champ. We were both exhausted after all that, but especially him, and this is what he looked like a little while after we got home:
He took a 3 hour nap! Ryan NEVER does that!! I slept for two hours myself. Iain sat in the family room with us while we slept and watched TV and played with the dogs. When I woke up he said, “Oh thank god you’re awake! I was SOOOO bored!” In spite of the day’s events, it felt like such a wonderful, snuggly day.
You may be wondering what happened to Iain’s
prisoner pet. He let it go! Another caterpillar showed up on our patio today and Iain was convinced that it was his pet, Active, coming back for a visit. On a different note, Iain has decided that he is the best video game player in the world and I’m not one to dissuade him from that notion. LOL
Here are some photos I took of him while he was having that epiphany:
I got a little sad when I saw the top one because I could almost see into the future and see the man that Iain is going to become. It was a little weird.
I started my Photoshop class this week so you may see some of my homework assignments here. Already there has been so much information and it’s only the first week! I can’t wait to see how much info I pick up by the end of the course.
Tomorrow I’m hoping to catch up on my blog reading. Sorry if I haven’t left a comment on your blog lately. I’ve gotten wrapped up in things around here but tomorrow I’m making the rounds!!
Hope you’re having a good week!
