Give me strength

Yesterday wasn't great.

When I lost a filling last week it reminded me to make an appointment for kidlet's dental check up.

News at the check up was horrific: I heard her mention kid's root canal and silver capping and 2 other fillings...then there was the braces he'll need later and I almost passed out.
Plus she made me feel like a bad mum, with a mini lecture on 'hidden' sugars. Hel-lo. I know all about that. My kids have a super healthy diet with minimal treats. Sweetest thing they would have all day is their cereal, which I'm changing!
When she mentioned saliva problems being a possible cause and seeing an ENT specialist, my eyes almost rolled back in my head.

Then I came home to continuing dramas with finding missing tax documents, only to be told if I can't find then it'll cost me hundreds of dollars.

On top of PC keyboard packing up and unable to connect new screen, I was ready to curl up in a ball last night.

Hopefully today is a better day!

Oh no :-(

The weird thing about dentists is I have one kid with a mouthful of fillings and the other (aged 16) who doesn't have one. Does this mean one can't brush their teeth properly or one has bad saliva *face plant*.

But also so glad for the National Health Service so my kid gets his braces free :-)

I've got my fingers crossed for you that you find your missing papers and shame on the dentist for making you feel bad. I've changed dentists a few times until I found one that doesn't treat ME like a four year old!

Hope you have a great day!

((SUPER HUGS)) Tomorrow will be far more fantastic with tax documents floating turning up in the fridge (why not?), teeth fixing themselves and super sexy men lining up to connect your new screen xx
