This is going to be a quickie because I escaped for just a short time and the library is going to close soon. Also, no pictures (sigh...some day I will post pictures again).
Kember is starting school in September. She is very excited about this (we will see how excited she is when it actually rolls around), and is constantly telling anyone who will listen that she is going to school in september and gets to ride the bus all by herself (again, we will see if she actually will, but she's excited for now). I'm excited for her. I think it will be a great experience and give me a little break from three kids. Anyway, to go to school everything needed to be up-to-date...like doctors appointments, immunizations, and dentists. Everything was right on schedule...except the dentist. Well, I called and got her an appointment and I thought "No problem." See, Kember normally does really well at new things. Apparently the Dentist is the exception. Holy cow. She cried/screamed for 45 minutes. She clung on to me sooo tight I couldn't breath. Caden thought the whole thing was really cool, but I couldn't really chase him down while I had an attachment of Kember on me. All the Dentist wanted to do was count her teeth. We had even practiced the day before and talked about it, read books, etc. After he got her teeth counted (20, just incase you were wondering) and left she calmed down a little (he must have scared her) the nurse/hygenist was able to apply floride and do the air thing in her mouth. Boy, it was quite the process and completely wore me out. But she loved the little bag of stuff they gave her afterwards. Needless to say, I'm not looking forward to going back in 6 months, and I think we are going to find another dentist that has a more kid friendly office. I might even try going with a friend so Kember can watch. Who knows....I might just put it off and wait until she's older...yep, that's good parenting for you!
Oh, and speaking of terrors, I had a doctor appointment today and had to do the diabetes test...yuck. The nasty orange drink is still nasty, but at least this one wasn't carbonated. It definitely makes it easier to chug if you don't have fizzy bubbles burning your throat.
I think we are finally over the "sick" phase of ... whatever phase we were in. After both kids had high fevers and threw-up all over we are good to go. Our van is still dead (oops..that's my fault), so I'm taking Dan to school in the mornings. It's a little early for me, but since we aren't locking Kember in her room at night anymore (night time potty training has begun...speaking of terrors) she is able to get out and about around 6ish...oh happy happy day. I love child proof locks, and am definitely going to miss that option.
