It was D Day and I had to return to the dentist this afternoon.
But the girls went this morning. Hettie was fine with not a problem, this is the child who eats a tonne of chocolate, has no high calcium food and the one you have to nag to clean her teeth. Isobel, the child who eats lots of fruit and veg, has milk on her cereal every day, and cleans her teeth regularly had to have one filling replaced and needs four top milk teeth removed. Both the dentist and myself tried to gently persuade her to have an injection and have them out there and then. But she wasn't having any of that. So we have to go to the dental clinic for sedation and extraction. That's going to be a fun day!
I was re-injected, re-drilled and filled. It took 3/4 of an hour in total and left me with a newly throbbing face. I have to have a crown but she didn't want me to 'waste my money' in case I still need it removed, so I have to go back....again.
Issy didn't want to return to school this afternoon, obviously the filled tooth was much much worse when it was time to go back. So we gave up on school, home ed and anything else really for today.
Tomorrow Hettie and I are off to the science museum with some friends so I must go and rake through the cupboards for a packed lunch!
