Dimples and Sunshine have dental appointments today. Sunshine has two teeth that need to come out to make room for the permanent teeth crowding her little mouth. Dimples has a small cavity that needs to be filled.
Fortunately, I was able to schedule them back-to-back this morning and Sweet Pea is coming along to help. I asked her which girl she wanted to be with during their procedure and she said, “I’ll go with Dimples. I don’t think I can handle tooth extraction – I’m afraid it will bother me – especially since it is my sister. Besides, I don’t do teeth – they’re gross.”
This from my daughter who just finished her surgery rotation! She assisted in multiple surgeries and loves hanging out in emergency rooms.
I had to laugh.
I’m not a big fan of teeth and bones myself. Blood doesn’t bother me, but broken and dislocated bones really get to me. I once had a bone marrow biopsy that nearly wiped me out with anxiety – I now have a love affair with Versed. (Dr. Sweet Pea tells me I shouldn’t make jokes like that — trust me, I’ve only had it once and it got me through a much-feared procedure.)
I finished reading Radical: Taking Back Your Faith From the American Dream, and have finally moved on to Wounded Children, Healing Homes. I already love it. I invite you to read it with me and tell me what you think.

What will happen when a group of moms begins holding our children, showing them a little bit more love, giving them more of ourselves than we had before? I don’t know — but I’m excited to find out.
