3:48am…we’re up my daughter and I. Severe tooth pain awakened her from peacefulness at 10:30…4 applications of Orajel and 4 failed attempts to return to dreams later, we gave up. So we’re watching ET. I’m also reading blogs and writing to you wherever you are…where are you? What do you usually do at 4am?
3:54am she wants to draw and dress up. Sigh…glad I caved and made a fresh bodum of joe. She’s no interest in settling down…when she does her tooth hurts again. Sigh…am I crazy or is there a suspicious connection here…
3:57 she’s having dental surgery Tuesday next to remove teeth, fill cavities and gain metal crowns to protect babies until her adult dents come in. So extensive she’ll be put under into dreamless sleep. I hate feeling helpless…no way to cure her pain presently, not fussy about this side of parenting AT. ALL. Sucks. Apparently tooth decay and status of your teeth whether strong or weak have an overbite or under etc is hereditary. I had at least 8 mercury fillings between ages 5-8 (Lily’s 5). Sucks to be her.
4:05 Caved again I let her draw instead of lying on couch. Man. When is she going to crash?! She will you know. Big time. I feel blurry. A week today and this will all be over, her pain at an end, I can’t wait. Helpless sucks.
Maybe I’ll put up more Xmas lights to breathe cheer 🙂
Peace, love & light,
